Official: Alaves sign Leipzig’s Demirovic

Alaves have completed the signing of highly-rated teenage striker Ermedin Demirovic from RB Leipzig, it has been confirmed.

Captain of the Bundesliga club’s youth team, Demirovic becomes manager-less Alaves’ first signing of the summer although the club have given no indication of the fee involved.

The 19-year-old netted 14 goals and provided five assists in 25 appearances for the Under 19 side last season, and scored once in a sole substitute appearance for RB Leipzig II.

"I have always dreamed of playing in LaLiga and I hope to help Deportivo Alaves with strong performances and lots of goals," Demirovic told the Alaves club website.

The Bosnian youth international looks set to be part of the Basque club’s first team squad next season.
