According to BBC Sport, Everton want as much as £25 million as transfer fee for Ademola Lookman.

It has been reported that RB Leipzig are interested in signing Lookman from Everton in the summer transfer window.

The German club are claimed to have been interested in the winger last summer as well, with the Toffees now reportedly looking for £25m.

 

Healthy profit

Lookman has been on the books of Everton since January 2017 when he joined from Charlton Athletic for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £11m.

Everton reportedly wanting £25m as transfer fee for the 21-year-old suggests that they are hoping to make £14m as profit on the England Under-21 international.

Smart move?

Lookman is a very good winger with tricks and pace, but the Englishman has failed to establish himself in manager Marco Silva’s team.

If Silva does not have any plans for the winger, then it would make sense for Everton to cash in on him and use the money from his sale to strengthen the squad this summer.
