RB Leipzig Still In Talks With Everton To Sign Ademola Lookman Permanently

share on:

New RB Leipzig head coach Ralf Rangnick has confirmed the club remain in talks with Everton over a deal for Ademola Lookman. 

it was reported that Everton rejected a £12m offer for the forward from Leipzig earlier this week. 

“I think three more signings is realistic,” Rangnick said. “We’re still in talks over Ademola Lookman – we want him back and he wants to come.

“We’re also looking at something in central midfield, whether that’s a No 6, 8 or 10.”

Having initially been against sending Ademola Lookman out on loan last January, Everton’s then-manager Sam Allardyce changed his mind, favouring a short-term deal with a Championship club.

But Lookman joined Leipzig until the end of the season, with Allardyce saying it was “one of the most unusual situations I’ve been in”.

He added: “His stubbornness meant he got his own way. I hope he proves us all wrong.”
