 Everton Set Nigerian Record Price Tag For RB Leipzig Target Lookman
Everton have reportedly placed a £25m price tag on the head of Ademola Lookman amid interest from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, according to Liverpool Echo.

Leipzig were initially interested in the youngster's services during last summer transfer window but both parties couldn't reach an agreement before close of the period.

Ademola, 21, failed to convince Marco Silva of his potential throughout last season and he is now linked with a move away from Goodison Park as he searches for greener pastures.

Since making his much-celebrated switch to the Merseyside club in 2017, the winger has played just 36 Premier League games with just one goal to show.

Meanwhile, he had a great spell while he was on loan at RB Leipzig where he scored five League goals from just 11 games.

His goalscoring display is definitely one of the reasons why the Bundesliga side are seeking a permanent deal for his signature.

If the £25m price tag is met by the German-based club, Lookman will become the joint most expensive Nigeria-eligible player in history along with Kelechi Iheanacho who joined Leicester City for the same fee.

The former Charlton Athletic wonderkid is currently with Marco Silva's squad in Switzerland — venue of their pre-season training.
