Jean-Kevin Augustin leaves Paris Saint-Germain for RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig have completed the €13 million signing of forward Jean-Kevin Augustin from Paris Saint-Germain on a five-year deal.

Augustin, 20, leaves PSG after being unable to break into the first-team squad.

"We've tracked Jean-Kevin Augustin's development for a long time," Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick said at the unveiling of the player, who becomes the club's fourth with roots in French football. "We are delighted to have reached an agreement."

Augustin added: "I am happy to be a RB Leipzig player. I want to help the team with my versatility."

Jean-Kevin Augustin had been linked with Leipzig's Bundesliga rivals Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund last season.

Kicker reported that the transfer fee for Augustin is in the region of €13m.

Earlier this summer, Leipzig sold Germany under-21 attacker Davie Selke to Hertha Berlin for just under €10m.

Speaking at the news conference, Rangnick also reiterated the club's stance to not sell any key players amid interest in Naby Keita and Emil Forsberg from Premier League.

Rangnick said: "We will definitely not be letting any key players go. There's nothing that will make us budge.

"It's totally normal for clubs to be interested in our players, but that doesn't affect our stance on the matter."
