FC Red Bull Salzburg have been able to sign another promising talent in striker Dimitri Oberlin. The Swiss Cameroonian is joining the Red Bulls from FC Zürich and has signed a contract running for three years until 2018.
The Swiss under-19 international made one cup appearance for Zurich last season and played 17 matches in the Swiss third division, scoring seven goals. Oberlin recently scored two goals in a 3-0 pre-season friendly win against FC Aarau.
Obelin will start training with the Red Bulls today.
Christoph Freund, head of football for FC Red Bull Salzburg, says on the transfer: “Oberlin is a young player who has plenty of potential for development and suits our requirements really well. We have been observing him for a very long time, and we are convinced about his qualities as a striker with great potential. We are delighted that such a highly talented player has decided to join Red Bull Salzburg, despite other offers. We are certain that he is a player who will give us plenty of joy in the coming years.”
