Ademola Lookman: Everton close to selling winger to RB Leipzig for £22.5m
Ademola Lookman joined Everton from Charlton for £11m in January 2017

Everton are close to agreeing a £22.5m deal to sell England Under-21 forward Ademola Lookman to RB Leipzig.

The Bundesliga club have improved their original offer for the 21-year-old.

Lookman enjoyed a successful loan spell with the German side in the second half of the 2017-18 season, scoring five goals in 11 league games.

Leipzig had been prepared to pay in excess of £20m for the winger last summer but were told he was not for sale.

Lookman has made 48 appearances for Everton since joining from Charlton in January 2017, but missed out on the European Under-21 Championship with England this summer.
