Theo Walcott’s and Richarlison’s form in the early stages of the season for Everton may have made Ademola Lookman’s potential move away from Goodison Park even more likely.
Everton have been keen to keep hold of Lookman, and they have rejected multiple bids for the youngster already.
However, Lookman is understood to be keen on playing more regularly, and he may be questioning how that is going to happen for Marco Silva’s side.
Although Richarlison was sent off on his last appearance for the Toffees, his brilliant form has already made him a fans’ favourite at Goodison Park.
Richarlison has netted three times this season to date, and looked to be Everton’s most dangerous attacking weapon.
When he returns from suspension he will surely go straight back into Silva’s starting line-up, leaving Lookman a reserve again.
Walcott, meanwhile, has also scored twice in Everton’s last two matches and he is thriving in a more attacking system.
The rapid forward looks as if he could score prolifically for Everton this term, with Lookman surely not standing much of a chance of pushing him out.
And with RB Leipzig preparing another bid, according to the Daily Mirror, Everton may just be becoming more inclined to allowing Lookman to leave, as they are going to struggle to offer him the regular action that he craves, if Richarlison and Walcott continue to play so brilliantly.
