The tall striker agreed a move from FC Midtjylland worth £9million, but made few appearances in his first year at Selhurst Park.
In January 2019, he agreed a six-month loan to Gent, and in the summer he moved to Turkish side Trabzonspor after signing a rare two-year loan move.
After a sensational first season in Turkey, in which he scored the most goals ever for the club by a foreign player, suitors began lining up for the 24-year-old.
Among reported interest from Tottenham, who are in the market for a back-up option to Harry Kane, RB Leipzig have stolen a march in their bid to bring in the attacker in a complicated deal.
Here we take a look at the latest news surrounding the Palace forward’s future.
Sorloth is said to be close to a permanent transfer to RB Leipzig after agreeing a move worth £22million in total.
The deal has been complicated by the fact that the 24-year-old is in the middle of a two-year loan at Trabzonspor, and has refused to return to the Turkish club after competing for Norway in the UEFA Nations League.
However, agreements have been made and Sorloth is ready to complete his move to Germany.
The Athletic report that the fee for the 6ft 4ins striker will be split essentially evenly between Palace and Trabzonspor, meaning around £11million each.
The two clubs have mutually agreed to cancel the loan, though there is a significant payment due to the Turkish side given they had an option to sign the striker permanently for £5.5million at the end of the 2020/21 season should he start more than 50 per cent of their games this year.
Spurs have been strongly linked with a move for the striker as a potential back-up for Harry Kane.
Jose Mourinho is in the difficult position of having to try and attract a striker of significant importance to the first team while facing the reality that they will not see much first-team football behind Kane.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reportedly contacted Palace about a potential move. However, Sorloth prefers a move to the Bundesliga, and Leipzig offer him the chance of Champions League football as a direct replacement for new Chelsea striker Timo Werner.
Sorloth has been pictured in Leipzig ahead of a medical that is expected to take place on Tuesday afternoon.
The examination was initially reported to be taking place on Monday, but was postponed until today.
The striker confirmed to Norwegian broadcaster TV2 that he was ready to become a Leipzig player.
