BeinSportsTR reporter Erman Gonulsen has claimed German side RB Leipzig are very close to signing Galatasaray’s Bruma.
The Leicester City and Southampton target has been unable to agree to a contract extension with Galatasaray, and recent reports from Turkish press suggested a move to another club is likely.
Bruma wants to play in the Premier League with Leicester and Southampton showing a keen interest for player. Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with Bruma in recent months following reported attempts to sign the 22-year-old in January.
However, German side RB Leipzig are currently leading the race, and BeinSportsTR claim the Bundesliga club are very close to signing the player. Leipzig are in deep negotiations with Galatasaray and they are hoping the Turkish side will reduce the €18m asking price in order to complete the deal.
This will come as a blow to Leicester City and Southampton after recently being linked with Bruma. The youngster’s contract situation has been dragging on for months and the two Premier League sides were looking to take advantage in the summer.
There may still be some hope, Bruma has made it very clear the Premier League is his dream.
