Breaking News ! Alexander Sorloth has not quite had the impact he would have liked in South London after completing a transfer to Crystal Palace. The 24-year-old moved to Selhurst Park in January 2018 from FC Midtjylland for £9million, but made few appearances in the next year. In January 2019 he moved to Gent on a loan deal until the end of the season, and the following campaign he agreed to a two-year loan with Turkish side Trabzonspor.

Tottenham interest Spurs have been strongly linked with a move for the striker as a potential back-up for Harry Kane. Jose Mourinho is in the difficult position of having to try and attract a striker of significant importance to the first team while facing the reality that they will not see much first-team football behind Kane. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly contacted Palace about a potential move. However, Sorloth prefers a move to the Bundesliga, and Leipzig offer him the chance of Champions League football as a direct replacement for new Chelsea striker Timo Werner.
