RB Leipzig Sign French Youngster Augastin from PSG
RB Leipzig have signed Jean-Kevin Augustin from Paris Saint-Germain on a five-year deal.
A fee for the 20-year-old forward was not disclosed by the Bundesliga club but German media outlet Kicker report it to be €13 million.
Augustin has represented France at all youth levels from under-16 to under-21 but has found first-team opportunities at Parc des Princes limited, with nine of his 10 Ligue 1 appearances coming from the bench last season before the turn of the year.
“I am very happy to be a Leipzig player. I hope that I can help the team with my flexibility in attack,” Augustin told a news conference.
The signing further bolsters RB Leipzig’s squad ahead of their Champions League debut, following the capture of Portuguese winger Bruma from Galatasaray, also on a five-year contract.
