Liverpool target Emil Forsberg could leave RB Leipzig this month – agent

RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg is a target for a number of leading clubs and could move in this month’s transfer window according to his agent, following reports linking him with Liverpool.

The Sweden international has been a revelation for the Bundesliga’s second-placed side this season.

Leipzig sit only behind Bayern Munich, while they are six points clear of third-placed Hertha Berlin, and Forsberg’s league-high eight assists have contributed to them making the best start ever by a league newcomer.

Agent Hasan Cetinkaya, quoted in Germany’s Bild newspaper, said: “I’m not going to confirm any names, but after the excellent first half of the season that Emil has had, some big clubs have made enquiries.

“Leipzig are on their way to becoming a big club who will be playing in the Champions League themselves soon, but I still cannot promise that Emil will be staying in Leipzig this winter.”

The 25-year-old has also scored five goals in his first season in Germany’s top flight.

Forsberg joined Leipzig two years ago while they were still in the second division of the Bundesliga, arriving from Malmo for a fee of around £3 million.
