The Premier League title hopefuls, along with La Liga giants Barcelona, have had the French teenager scouted on several occasions this season.

They have, however, fallen behind Leipzig in the race for his signature, with a £10 million move to Germany close to completion.

It is understood that the relationship between Salzburg and their fellow Red Bull-owned outfit has helped to swing things in the Bundesliga club's favour.
