Further defensive reinforcements!
Mohamed Simakan will join RB Leipzig from RC Strasbourg on 1st July 2021, signing a five-year contract. The 20-year-old will wear the number 2 shirt for Die Roten Bullen.
Simakan joined Strasbourg’s academy in 2018 and made rose through the U19 and U23 into the first team of the French side. He has since established himself in the France U20s squad (two appearances) and – despite his young age – has developed into an important player for RSC, making 44 competitive appearances (1 goals, 1 assist).
The defender has been out of action since January following arthroscopic surgery in his right knee.
