Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are considering moves for RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin, Sky Sports News understands.

Ligue 1 rivals Nice and Monaco are also understood to be keen on the 22-year old striker, who moved to the Red Bull Arena in 2017 on a five-year deal.

Sky Sports News understands Leipzig are willing to sell the France U21 international, but would be looking to recoup the £15m they paid PSG for the striker two years ago.

Augustin has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place and scored three goals in 17 Bundesliga appearances last season as Leipzig finished third place to secure Champions League football.

The forward enjoyed his best season to date under Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl in his debut campaign in Germany, scoring 12 goals with seven assists in 37 appearances.
