Bayer Leverkusen have bolstered their attack with the signing of Amine Adli from Toulouse on a five-year deal.

Adli, 21, scored eight goals and assisted seven as Toulouse earned promotion to the French top-flight last season. Now, the former France U18 international will play alongside Florian Wirtz, Moussa Diaby and Patrik Schick at Leverkusen.

"This is another very important move for us at the end of the transfer period," said sporting director Simon Rolfes. "Amine Adli is the final piece of the puzzle. He's very fast with good technique, is extremely agile and tricky. I'm we'll have a lot of fun with him in the years to come."

"Bayer are a club I find extremely appealing," added Adli. "I really wanted to come here. Leverkusen has a style of play that totally suits me. I can't wait to play football with these guys - it's going to be great fun."

Adli could make his Bundesliga debut for Leverkusen at Augsburg on Matchday 3 of the 2021/22 season.
