RB Leipzig New Boy Lookman Breaks Nigerian Transfer Record Held By Super Eagles CaptainPublished: July 25, 2019
Ademola Lookman has become the most expensive Nigerian winger in history following his move to Bundesliga outfit
RB Leipzig on Thursday, July 25.
The very reliable BBC is reporting that Lookman has inked a five-year contract and Everton will pocket £22.5 million, and if that is the case the transfer has broken a Nigerian transfer record previously held by current Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa.
In the summer of 2016, Leicester City coughed up a fee in the region of £16.6 million to bring Musa to the King Power Stadium - record transfer for a Nigerian winger.
Before Musa broke the record, the most expensive Nigerian winger in history was Victor Moses who joined Chelsea in 2012 for a fee of nine million pounds.
Lookman is now the second costliest Nigerian player behind Kelechi Iheanacho who moved to Leicester City from Manchester City for £25 million.
Everton paid £11m to Charlton Athletic for the services of the 21-year-old in January 2017.
