RB Leipzig have confirmed the signing of Galatasaray forward Bruma on a five-year deal.

Bruma, 22, joins the Bundesliga runners-up as they prepare for a debut Champions League campaign.

“With his footballing abilities and his physical prowess he perfectly fits our style,” sporting director Ralf Rangnick told the club’s official website.

“He’s pacy, has a strong technique and a superb drive towards goal. We are glad to have purchased a player with auch talent. Bruma will offer more options in our attacking play and give us more flexibility on the no. 10 positions.”

The Portugal under-21 international moved to Turkey in 2013 after coming through the ranks at Sporting Lisbon and scored 11 goals in 30 Turkish Super Lig appearances last season.

Leipzig had already strengthened their squad with the signing of 18-year-old defender Ibrahima Konate, who joined from French Ligue 2 side Sochaux-Montbeliard.
