RB Leipzig seal $38m deal for Everton's Ademola Lookman

England Under-21 forward Ademola Lookman has joined Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on a permanent transfer from English Premier League club Everton, both clubs announced yesterday.

Leipzig, who finished third last season and qualified for the Champions League, said the 21-year-old had signed a five-year contract.

The BBC reported that the deal for Lookman was worth £22.5 million (S$38.4 m).

Lookman ended the 2017/18 campaign on loan to Leipzig before returning to Merseyside club Everton, playing 24 times in all competitions last season and scoring once. - REUTERS
