Everton fans are turning against Lookman as Leipzig move in

Some Everton fans are turning against Ademola Lookman, as the speedy young winger did not feature in the Toffees’ pre-season draw against Bury.

One of the most infuriating aspects of Sam Allardyce’s reign at Everton was his decision to loan Lookman to Red Bull Leipzig in January.

The Toffees were lacking pace and directness in attack, so the decision to loan out a young, pacey and direct winger was quite simply bizarre. The worst of that decision may be yet to come though, as it seems to have convinced Leipzig to try and sign him permanently.

The 20 year-old’s stay in Germany was a huge success, scoring five and assisting three in 11 Bundesliga appearances.

Leipzig are making no secret about their pursuit of the winger, and there were rumours of a scout from the German club attending the match against Bury.

Lookman did not play, and while some fans are laughing at the thought of a scout showing up to watch a player only for them not to feature, others are starting to get fed up of this saga.
