He becomes the Bundesliga sides fourth signing of the summer, with Kicker reporting it has cost them €9.5million, around £7.4million, to secure the 18-year-old’s signature. 

He is the second European talent to arrive at the club this summer, with Ousmane Dembele also having agreed a move from Ligue 1 side Rennes.

His move to Thomas Tuchel’s side will come as a major disappointment to Liverpool, who had been hotly tipped to sigh Mor this summer.

They, alongside the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal, as well as Juventus and Galatasary had all been linked with the youngster according to the Daily Mail. 

Indeed, just five days ago ESPN were reporting that Liverpool were leading the race for his signature and Jurgen Klopp was extremely keen to bring the Turkish star to Anfield.
