If RB Leipzig are doing well in the Bundesliga, it isn’t because of Davie Selke.
That isn’t a dig aimed at the 22-year-old striker, it’s just he’s barely been given a chance by the promoted German side this season despite playing an important part in their heroics last season, scoring 10 goals in 30 appearances.
With his future in doubt, an exit this summer seems likely, according to SportBild, who report he shouldn’t be short of offers, with both Stoke City and Leicester City allegedly interested in his services.
Selke has only started two games for the Bundesliga side this season, with his remaining 13 appearances all coming from the bench, and a move to the Premier League could certainly be an appeal once the season ends.
Ideal to replace a likely departing Wilfried Bony or Leonardo Ulloa at both Stoke or Leicester, the 22-year-old certainly has the physical attributes for the Premier League, standing at 6’4” and far from slow for his frame.
Whether Craig Shakespeare (or whoever takes over at Leicester) and Mark Hughes actually go for Selke remains to be seen, but were they to, they would face some strong competition from Germany in Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen.
Selke was part of the Germany U23 side who picked up a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics, helping them with two goals in five appearances, and was a regular for Germany’s U21 side between 2015 and 2016, scoring seven goals and picking up two assists in nine appearances.
