RB Leipzig reportedly want to sign Ademola Lookman from Everton on a permanent basis following his impressive loan stint in the second half of 2017-18.

Bundesliga side RB Leipzig intend to push ahead with plans to sign Ademola Lookman from Everton, according to a report.

The 20-year-old showed plenty of promise during his half-season spell on loan with Leipzig, scoring five times in seven top-flight starts.

Die Bullen chief Ralf Rangnick suggested last month that the club would wait until the managerial situation at Everton is cleared up before deciding whether to move for the young attacker.

Despite the Toffees currently being without a manager, the Liverpool Echo claims that Leipzig intend to test their resolve by tabling an offer.

Everton are likely to reject any advances, however, as new sporting director Marcel Brands wants young players to feature prominently under the new manager.
