“I see that there have been some names here, but I do not know anything other than what is mentioned, that he is in negotiations,” Gøran said.

“It is no secret that when you become the top scorer in Turkey, there are clubs that are looking for you. If a transfer is completed, then there is nothing better than that.

“When such a name appeared (like Leipzig) it was impressive, and I was quite impressed. I saw their match in the Champions League the other day. It’s a good football team, which is important, if there is to be a transfer.”

The Eagles allowed Alexander to join Trabzonspor on a two-year deal with an obligation to buy. The temporary deal is until 2021.

“We can only hope that something is cleared up in a short time, that is what is a bit of the point. There are several aspects of this transfer, with the loan from Crystal Palace via Trabzonspor, and to a third club,” Gøran added.
