RB Leipzig strike provisional €16m deal with Montpellier for Nordi Mukiele

German outfit RB Leipzig have struck a provisional €16m deal with Montpellier chairman Laurent Nicollin for highly-rated French central defender Nordi Mukiele, according to L’Équipe.

After rejecting an initial offer worth €14m from the Bundesliga, MHSC have provisionally said yes to a revised proposal worth over €16m.

Mukiele seems set on waiting to see if other suitors come in with offers, notably bigger French sides that are interested in his profile.

However, Mukiele is impressed by the Leipzig project: he likes the playing philosophy and the ability for him to get consistent playing time with a side that is likely to remain on the continental European scene in the coming seasons.
