RB Leipzig are interested in highly-rated Aston Villa youngster Jaden Philogene-Bidace.

The 18-year old has scored four goals and provided two assists in eight games for Villa’s Under 23s this season.

He bagged a hat-trick on his debut for England Under 19s in a behind-closed-doors friendly at St George’s Park earlier this year.

His existing deal expires at the end of the season meaning Leipzig believe they have a good chance of landing Philogene-Bidace at relatively cheap price.

Leipzig meanwhile are bracing themselves for a possible approach in the January transfer window from Tottenham Hotspur for Marcel Sabitzer.

The midfielder commanded the interest of the north London side earlier in the year when his two goals helped dumped them out of the Champions League last-16.

German reports believe that the Austria international is also keen on a move to White Hart Lane.

He is the club’s top earner on £5.5million per year and the Bundesliga side would struggle to increase his wages.

Spurs hope that a deal worth around £45m could land the player whose contract expires in the summer of 2022.
