RB Leipzig are showing strong interest in Nick Powell.
It’s claimed by British media that RB Leipzig are leading the race for Wigan midfielder Nick Powell.
The England international joined Wigan from Manchester United on a free transfer in July 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2019
Powell made 123 appearances across all competitions for Wigan, scoring 37 goals and supplying 16 assists in return.
Nick Powell has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 30 caps and scoring 7 goals.
The 24-year-old’s contract at Wigan is about to expire in the summer and a number of clubs are said to be monitoring his situation, with RB Leipzig showing the most concrete interest in an attempt to lure the player to their team.
Ralf Rangnick has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
Nick Powell has the talent to play many roles in midfield.
According to Teamtalk, “Bundesliga side RB Leipzig are ready to offer a pre-contract to Wigan’s Nick Powell in January, we can reveal. The 24-year-old attacking midfielder’s current deal with the Latics expires at the end of the season. Powell has turned down all Wigan’s advances of a new contract, and even though they have new high-profile owners who are ready to offer him a bumper deal – the former Manchester United attacker is ready to shun that, knowing he can leave for free at the end of the season.”
