Some Everton fans have suggested that a swap deal could be on the cards for Red Bull Leipzig’s Jean-Kevin Augustin.

The Telegraph have reported how Marco Silva’s side are keen to sign Augustin, who they see as an exciting prospect.

 

Augustin has shown flashes of quality in the Bundesliga, despite still only being 21-years-old.

And Everton fans believe that there may be a way for the deal to work for both sides.

Leipzig took the £11 million forward (BBC Sport) on loan from Everton back in the 2017/18 campaign, and he had a brilliant stint with the German side.

Lookman has since returned to Everton, but he struggled to force his way into Silva’s starting line-up this term.

And Everton fans believe that they could well trade Lookman for Augustin this summer.

Augustin scored three goals in 16 Bundesliga games over the past campaign, and can play anywhere across the front-line.
