LEVERKUSEN, Germany (AP) — Bayer Leverkusen has signed striker Josip Drmic from relegated Bundesliga rival Nuremberg.

Leverkusen signed Drmic to a five-year contract and paid Nuremberg a 5 million euro ($6.89 million) transfer fee. Drmic had another three years on his contract but used an exit clause.

The 21-year-old striker was the Bundesliga’s third-best scorer with 17 goals and is hoping to make Switzerland’s World Cup squad.

Leverkusen will play Champions League qualifying after finishing the season in fourth place.
