Everton name their asking price for RB Leipzig target Ademola Lookman
Everton have apparently named their asking price for Ademola Lookman in the middle of interest from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.
The Englishman spent most of last season on loan with the Bundesliga side and impressed.
He played 11 matches, scoring 5 times and helping 3 times, causing interest from the Bundesliga side to make a long-term relocation bid for the player. While he would no doubt be an asset for Leipzig, that does not indicate that Everton will wish to offer him up.
In reality, Marco Silva has currently stated that he does not wish to lose the player and desires him in the team next season. The only issue is that Lookman will be looking for first-team football next season and after Everton's company this summertime, can they offer him a first place?.
They have currently signed Richarlison for ₤ 40million while they are also supposedly on the brink of signing complimentary representative Bernard. Now, Everton have shortned on their Lookman position and have slapped a hefty price tag on him.
That is since a report from the Mirror today has actually recommended that the Toffees are trying to find ₤ 30million if they were to offer the player.
That is over 3 times exactly what the club spent for him when they signed him from Charlton back in 2017.
While that would represent a quite good revenue for the Toffees, they will not wish to lose such a skilled gamer.
The Premier League transfer window shuts on Thursday night however Lookman might still leave for Leipzig prior to the Bundesliga window shuts on September 1st.
Bernard move tips to me that Lookman might be on the method. Interesting assaulting choices if he isn't really however.
