Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to give his reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Everton winger Ademola Lookman.

According to The Daily Star (print edition, page 47, Tuesday, January 8, 2019), Southampton want to sign Lookman from Premier League rivals Everton in the January transfer window (click here to read more).

Goal.com has also claimed that the Saints want to secure the services of the 21-year-old winger this month, and that Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side are hopeful of a loan move.

 

Lookman worked with Southampton manager Hasenhuttl during his time on loan at RB Leipzig during the second half of last season.

The England Under-21 international winger has struggled for playing time for Everton so far this season, and the Saints could do with a player of the youngster’s quality and skills in their team.

Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to give his reaction to speculation regarding Lookman - who is valued at €18.8 million (£16.96m) by the CIES Football Observatory.
