The duo are being eyed by a number of clubs around Europe.

Premier League clubs Newcastle United and Leeds United have reportedly been handed a boost in their hopes to land two highly-rated Bundesliga stars.

German outlet Bild have reported RB Leipzig are bracing themselves to lose midfield duo Amadou Haidara and Tyler Adams over the remainder of the summer transfer window.

Newcastle have been linked with Haidara on a number of occasions since the PIF-led takeover at St James Park in October but face competition from Premier League rivals Manchester United.

The Mali international was mentioned in connection with both clubs during January and hinted at a possible future move to England after the closure of the transfer window.

He told Bild: "I can't say much about that. I'm glad to be back. You hear rumours, that's how it is when the transfer period is over.

“But I still have a contract and I want to keep fulfilling it. I see no reason to think about a change.

"The English league is very interesting, many players want to prove their skills there. But I feel very comfortable here and I'm glad that I can develop further here. It's clear that the English league is very interesting for all of us."

The 24-year-old midfielder still has three years left on his current contract with Leipzig and is believed to be have a £33million release clause in the deal.

Leipzig team-mate Tyler Adams is also attracting interest from the Premier League with both Leeds United and Everton said to be considering a move for the American international.

The Athletic have stated Leipzig could allow the midfielder to join either club on an initial loan deal with a view to a permanent move further down the line.

A move to Leeds would see Adams reunite with his former New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch at Elland Road.
