Leipzig sign Kampl as replacement of Keita

RB Leipzig have roped in Slovenia international Kevin Kampl from Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen after Naby Keita signed for Liverpool.

The 26-year-old joined the Champions League club on a four-year deal.

The transfer is a departure from Leipzig’s transfer strategy of signing only players up to the age of 24.

According to an ESPNFC report on Thursday, Kampl was previously linked with a transfer to Beijing Guoan earlier this summer, but the transfer did not materialise.

Kampl played in 53 Bundesliga games for Leverkusen, and a further 14 during his six months at Borussia Dortmund.
