Official: Bayer Leverkusen sign Danish youngster Nicolai Jorgensen from AB Copenhagen

Leverkusen complete attacking options...
Ambitious Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen have completed the transfer of promising youngster Nicolai Jorgensen from Danish side AB Copenhagen for an undisclosed fee. The attacker has signed a five-year deal with the Werkself.

Leverkusen have been in the market for a fourth attacker for a while, needing a player to compete with Patrick Helmes, Eren Derdiyok and Stefan Kiessling for two spots in the starting XI.

The 19-year-old was one of the key performers at Copenhagen last season and his impressive performances haven't gone unnoticed elsewhere. Leverkusen offered Jorgensen a trial period and the Denmark under-19 star managed to convince the German side of his qualities.

"With the capture of Nicolai Jorgensen, we have signed the fourth attacker we were looking for. He's a very talented guy with a lot of potential. I'm convinced that he'll help the team in the new season," said Leverkusen chief Wolfgang Holzhauser on the club's official website.
