TRANSFER UPDATES: German Club Offers N10.2bn for Ademola Lookman
Ademola Lookman is one of the most sought-after youngsters in world football presently.
Though the 20-year old is of Nigerian descent, he is presently committed to playing for England who he has already starred for their Youth teams.
The same way he is making waves in international football, so also is the striker doing well in club football.
It is understood that German club RB Leipzig are reportedly ready to splash as much £22m (over 10.2bn) to get Lookman permanently from Everton..
The talented forward spent last season on loan at the Bundesliga outfit, who are now eager to make the move permanent having seen the youngster score five goals in 11 appearances.
Everton have already turned down two bids from Leipzig, but The Mirror reports that they have now returned with a third offer of £22m, which would break their transfer record.
The summer arrivals of Richarlison and Bernard have increased the competition for forward places at Goodison Park, leaving Lookman to consider the possibility of moving in order to secure more regular first-team football.
However, Everton are reportedly holding out for a £30m bid for the England Under-21 international.
Manager Marco Silva recently insisted that Lookman is in his plans for the new season, but the forward has not featured in either of the Toffees’ Premier League outings so far.
