Everton’s Nigerian-born winger, Ademola Lookman has been hit with a fresh dilemma about his future with the English Premier League club, following revived interest in his signature by RB Leipzig of Germany.
Footballlive.ng gathered that the team Lookman played on loan with last season are back with a fight to have him back, as The Red Bulls insist the lad wants to play for them in a permanent contract.
Though Everton have repeatedly rebuffed all overtures from the German Bundesliga outfit, footballllive.ng learnt that Leipzig remain keen on getting Lookman.
The 21-year-old enjoyed a loan stint last season, hitting five goals in 11 Bundesliga games, and Leipzig’s director of football, Paul Mitchell has now reignited talk about a move for the lad.
Mitchell said: “It’s clear how much affection we have for Ademola and I think from the way he performed here, the environment we created for him and the platform we gave him, he also enjoyed his time here.
“With a situation like that, we would always be open to revisiting, but you never know.
“At this moment he is an Everton player and he’s working with some really good people there.
“We know him and we will always keep a very close eye on his development because we see him as a Red Bull guy from his time here.
“But at the moment we just have to hope that he continues his progression as a footballer and let’s see what the future brings.”
