Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to a hugely important transfer development, as Ademola Lookman is set to stay on Merseyside this season.
With all the fantastic business Everton did on deadline day, it seems to have flown slightly under the radar that Lookman is set to stay with the club.
Red Bull Leipzig’s interest in the youngster has been one of the on-going sagas of the Toffees’ summer, and keeping the youngster is a big boost to Marco Silva’s attacking options.
According to Alan Myers of Sky Sports, Lookman will absolutely not leave this summer, despite the European window continuing past yesterday’s deadline.
The 20 year-old, who excelled on loan with Leipzig last season, could re-join the Bundesliga outfit even after yesterday’s deadline, as the rest of Europe did not follow the Premier League in bringing the window forward.
Fans are all relieved to hear that the youngster will stay put though, as his directness, skill and speed is what fans pay to see.
The capture of Bernard adds even more attacking impetus, and Silva suddenly has a whole host of options up front.

Big news. We’ve gone from having the slowest attack in living memory to possibly the quickest.

This is great news. In Tosun, Walcott, Bernard, Richarlison and Lookman we have a great choice of attacking options and most importantly lots of pace. Compared to the dross Alardyce served up last season this is going to be amazing, even if it takes a littlw while to settle in.
