Reports claim Red Bull Leipzig will up their bid for Ademola Lookman, and loads of Everton fans think it may just be time to cash in.
Of all the things Sam Allardyce did to annoy Everton fans, loaning out Lookman when the team was desperately lacking some youthful exuberance was the icing on the cake.
Big Sam sent the 20 year-old to the Bundesliga in January, and he dominated in Leipzig’s high-octane pressing system, scoring five and adding three assists in 11 outings.
The speedy youngster has huge potential, yet he has never shown that impact at Goodison, making just one Premier League start last season.
It appears Everton may be tempted to cash in now though, as The Liverpool Echo claim Leipzig are set to up their offer to a whopping £25m.
£25m is a lot of money for a player who has never really “made it” at Goodison, and despite his massive potential the club may have already found his replacement with Richarlison.

Offer him a new contract on better wages show our commitment to him and if he rejects it sell him

I would let him go for £25m I get the impression that he wants to go. Can we trust big role for young player that isnt arsed to play for us? No.

If he wants out, take that 25m to the bank

I’m in turmoil. I agree he’s a great ‘potential’ talent. But what worries me is, if he’s really good, why aren’t the whole of the Premiership knocking on our door and not just one club??

I’d sell him for 35

If he doesn’t want to be here then sack him off. Massive fee though, make them pay as he is under contract. 35m (report as 50m) 😂

Torn to be honest. That would be a very good fee and he’s only been good in bursts. Though he needs a consistent run in the team to realise his potential. At that value I wouldn’t be upset if he went but I’d prefer him to stay (if he wants to)

Good player… But for 25m… Sell him!
