6 players join RB Leipzig !
As January came, we start looking for players that were available to sign for our club now or on pre-contract. After a lot of work, scouting reports and sleepless nights we finally managed to sign 6 new players: 3 of them joined us now and the other 3 signed a pre-contract with us and will join in the summer!
Joe is an American central midfielder with a Spanish father that joined us from LA Galaxy for a fee of 180 k euro! He was in his last 6 months of contract, so the Americans accepted our offer because they didn’t want to lose him for free.
Joe, at his young age of 19 years old, already made his debute for the American National Squad where he played 2 matches. I am pretty sure that he will become very quickly one of our key players and our scouts believe that he has the potential to develop into a Bundesliga star!
He is a very technique player, but he also has great tackling abilities and his first touch is also amazing. With his amazing determination and great natural fitness, I am sure that he will impress!
Kevin is a 21 years old American central defender with a lot of potential! He is a very good tackler and he also marks his opponent very well.
For now, he is still weak for our club and that’s why we decided to send him out on loan to get some experience, so he will play until the end of the season at Paderborn.
He joined us as a free agent!
Rodrigo is a 19 years old Argentinian central defender that was formed at Estudiantes youth academy where he also made his debute and played until now. We paid Estudiantes a fee of 200 k euro for him as my scouts were impressed by his skills.
I decided to loan him out too until the end of the season, so we sent him bag in Argentina at Newell’s.
I think that Alphonse is our best signing of this transfer window! He signed a pre-contract with us and will join our club in the summer!
Alphonse was seen as the future of the French National team, but sadly for him, he didn’t get to much playing time at PSG, as they don’t really promote youngsters, they prefer to buy stars. At 22 years old I am sure that he still can develop his full potential and turn into one of the best keepers in the world!
At 194 cm and 95 kg, Areola is a very solid and strong keeper with great aerial ability and jumping reach! He also has great reflexes, very good handling and command of area skills.
Guelor Kanga is a 25 years old Gabonese attacking midfielder that played the biggest part of his career for clubs from Africa and just in 2013 was transferred in Europe by Fc Rostov.
He has a lot of great abilities like his technique, passing, first touch, dribbling, determination, creativity and pace, abilities that determined my scouts to say about him that he is a very good player for Bundesliga.
He signed a pre-contract with us and will join our club in summer!
The last player that signed a pre-contract with us is Mohammed Agboh, an 18 years old French central midfielder with African origins.
I was impressed with his passing skills, technique, talking and first touch and I really can’t understand how Lyon can afford to lose a player like this for free! I am pretty sure that he will make a great midfielder couple with our American signing, Joe Lopez.
