Everton reject Lookman bid

Everton have rejected a bid worth around £12m from RB Leipzig for Ademola Lookman.

The Germans want to keep Lookman after his successful loan spell in the Bundesliga during the second half of last season.

And they have made their first move to make his move permanent but seen their opening offer knocked back by Everton.

Leipzig are now weighing up an improved bid knowing Lookman is keen to make the move.

He held talks with Everton chiefs last week over his future and they are reluctant to let him go.

But the exciting 20-year old forward is ready to move on and make a fresh start after struggling for regular football during his time at Everton.

He joined for £10m from Charlton in January 2017 and scored on a dream debut against Manchester City.

But he made just 15 Premier League appearances - only four starts - over the next year before moving to Germany.
