The agent of Leipzig star Emil Forsberg has confirmed that his client is looking to leave the club, having previous been linked with two Premier League clubs.

Liverpool have been credited with interested in the 27-year-old, whose agent hit out at Leipzig over their difficult stance last year.

Arsenal have also been linked with Forsberg and SportExpressen reported last summer that Leipzig did not want to sell him and had placed a fee of 550,000 Krona (£47m) on his head.

Now, Forsberg’s agent has criticised RB Leipzig over broken promises, and to either give his client a pay rise or put him on the transfer list.

“Emil is obviously disappointed, he has a chance to take the next step, and now the people who made promises to him last year do not stick to it,” he said.

Forsberg played 20 times in the Bundesliga last season, amassing four goals and seven assists in a campaign affected by injury.
