Everton desperate to keep Ademola Lookman away from RB Leipzig

Everton do not wish to lose Ademola Lookman on transfer deadline day today.

The Liverpool Echo says Everton have been forced to fight off sustained interest from RB Leipzig this summer with Lookman keen to leave for the German side.

Everton rejected an offer in July, believed to be in the region of £12m, and have since fielded a serious of further enquiries from Leipzig who had Lookman on loan in the second-half of last season.

The Bundesliga outfit are believed to have made it known they were willing to pay close to £25m for the winger.

But the Blues intend on standing firm over the young forward and have, at this late stage in the window, no intention of selling him to Leipzig on deadline day.
