Red Bull Leipzig coach Ragnick insists deal for Everton attacker Lookman still alive

Red Bull Leipzig coach Ralf Ragnick isn't giving up on signing Everton striker Ademola Lookman.

Ragnick says the club are still hopeful of signing Lookman before the transfer window closes on Friday, having made a bid of £25m plus add-ons for him on Saturday.

Rangnick said: "We'll see. Let's just wait another week. When you turn back the time to the last day of the last transfer market, at 2pm we didn't even think about a loan of Ademola Lookman.

"It seemed impossible to get him. But four hours later we got the deal done. I said then that it wasn't a last-minute deal but a last-second deal."
