DONE DEAL!! Ademola Lookman Completes Transfer To RB Leipzig From Everton
Ademola Lookman has completed a permanent move to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig from Everton for an undisclosed fee.
The 21-year-old winger, who impressed during a loan spell with Leipzig during the second half of the 2017-18 season, has signed a five-year contract with the German side.
Sky Sports News understand that the fee for Lookman’s transfer could eventually rise to £22.5m, with Everton receiving an initial £16m.
“We’re very pleased that we’ve finally signed Ademola Lookman,” RB Leipzig Sporting director Markus Krosche said.
“Ademola convinced us immensely during his time on loan here and will now quickly re-integrate and further enhance our attacking play with his dynamic ability.”
Lookman scored four goals in 48 appearances for Everton after joining from Charlton for £11m in January 2017.
Having impressed with five goals in 11 appearances for Leipzig in 2018, Lookman was unable to secure a regular starting place back at Goodison Park under Marco Silva.
