Transfer: 21-year-old winger set to become Nigeria’s joint most expensive footballer




Everton have put a £25m price tag on Ademola Lookman, amid interest from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, according to Liverpool Echo.

Leipzig were initially interested in the 21-year-old during last summer transfer window, but both parties couldn’t reach an agreement.

Ademola failed to convince Toffees boss, Marco Silva, last season and is now linked with a move away from Goodison Park.

Since making his switch to the Merseyside club in 2017, the winger has played just 36 Premier League games with just one goal to show.

However, he had a great spell while he was on loan at RB Leipzig, where he scored five League goals from just 11 games.

If the £25m price tag is met by the German club, Lookman will become the joint most expensive Nigeria-eligible player in history, along with Kelechi Iheanacho who joined Leicester City for the same fee.
