Some Everton fans have suggested that a swap deal could be on the cards for Red Bull Leipzig’s Jean-Kevin Augustin.
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.
Looks like a swap for lookman will be on the cards— Tim Jenkinson (@timjenkinson28) May 16, 2019

Swapping Lookman for Augustin sounds perfect tbh. Save money on a striker so we can invest more heavily in other positions of importance— Keith (@EFCKeith) May 16, 2019
I’d send Lookman to Leipzig and ask for Augustin back in exchange if they still him. Augustin is like DCL but scores— Matthew Barry (@EFCMatt1) May 16, 2019
Would be ideal, got a feeling we might go for Augustin though, Lookman maybe the other way— slugabed180 (@DanWilliams018) May 9, 2019
Bundles of potential, £17.5 mil could be a bargain— Sludvig (@sludvigs) May 16, 2019
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.
