Newcastle United and Chelsea reportedly attempted to sign the 18-year-old midfielder.
RB Leipzig defeated stiff competition to snag Schalke 04 starlet Assan Ouedraogo in a deal worth roughly £8 million.

“By signing Assan Ouedraogo, we were able to bring an absolutely exceptional talent to RB Leipzig,” said sporting director Rouven Schroder. “Despite receiving offers from other big Bundesliga and European teams, Assan picked us and our route. This demonstrates once again that RB Leipzig is a great destination for young athletes with exceptional abilities.

“We’ve been in contact with Assan for a long time, worked hard to get him, and are thrilled that he’s now wearing the RBL jersey.

His abilities are an excellent fit for our style of play, and he can play in any position in midfield.Assan is clever, athletic, and technically proficient. Furthermore, his dynamism means he brings a lot of forward thrust, which allows him to constantly instigate dangerous goal-scoring chances or score goals himself.

“Of course, he is still extremely young, but he has already played in the second Bundesliga and over 20 U-international matches at the international level. We will give him the time he needs to adjust and evolve, but we can already anticipate a wonderful young player with a lot of promise.”According to Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg, “Newcastle United, Frankfurt, Chelsea, and more teams were pushing for Ouedraogo in the last hours” on Wednesday. And the Germany youth international has explained why he chose Leipzig.
