Everton have reportedly told RB Leipzig that it will take a bid of £28m plus add-ons to prise Ademola Lookman away from the club this month.
Leipzig are eager to sign Lookman on a permanent basis before the end of the European transfer window on August 31, having been impressed by the youngster during a loan spell last season.
However, they are understood to have seen bids of £12m and £22m already rejected by the Toffees, who are reluctant to sell the 20-year-old winger.
Sky Sports News now reports that Everton have placed a £28m price tag on the head of Lookman, who has made just 24 senior appearances for the club since joining from Charlton Athletic in 2016.
The England Under-21 international scored five goals in 11 games while on loan at Leipzig during the second half of last season.
