Following Everton’s rejection of a £12 million bid for Ademola Lookman from RB Leipzig, more bids in the region of €14 million and €16 million have been turned down by the Blues which has led the German club to look elsewhere. This is apparently due to Lookman being an integral part of Silva and Brands’ plans going forwards which will be music to the ears of Evertonians.
Following the emergence of the Malcom reports, Lookman’s future was called into question however it could now be Walcott who will act as deputy if the deal for the Brazilian goes through with a 4-3-3 formation. The projected front three would be Lookman down the left, Tosun in the middle and Malcom down the right, if the deal is to go through.
Due to Everton’s high valuation of the former Charlton winger, Leipzig have been slightly put-off the move but have not cancelled their interest completely, although another bid is unlikely. These rumours come from BILD who have been proven to be reliable in the past.
