Fulham are poised to sign winger Ademola Lookman on a season-long loan deal from RB Leipzig, according to reports in Germany.
German tabloid Bild reports that the newly-promoted Premier League side have agreed to pay RB Leipzig around £1.83m to loan the former England under-21 international for the remainder of this campaign. Leipzig’s initial stance that they were only willing to sell the ex-Everton winger appears to have softened after the player indicated that he would like to move on having struggled to replicate his early success in Germany.
Lookman, who was born in Wandsworth and came through the Charlton academy, made just thirteen appearances for Leipzig last season – a stark contrast to his five goals in eleven appearances that convinced the German outfit to pay £16.5m for services. The 22 year-old, who Everton signed for £7.5m from the Addicks in 2017, scored four goals in 48 appearances for the Toffees and is reportedly eager to grasp another opportunity to prove himself in the English top flight.
A 2 million loan deal looks like a win win to me in the current climate. If it does not work out it will not have cost a lot of money or it could turn out to be a bargain. He has the potential of being an excellent signing at that price. Now dare I say it what about the two centre backs we so desperately need. it looks like Hector and Odoi or ream to face Villa. I am fearful .
He certainly appears to have the desire and returning to London may ignite the ability he showed for all be it a brief period
Cheap on a loan basis too. Worth a punt
I would love us to sign Johnathan Tah I think he would be a great signing, similar to Hangeland coyw
A good deal but do the club really require another wide player. I have counted 5 on our books already. Tony Khan put all your energies In finding two central defenders. Hector is a dissppoinment and needs a quality player along side him to give him confidence and guidance. Ream who is passed his best and the versatile Odoi maybe OK on the subs bench but nothing more. As it stands I can see us conceding three again against Aston villa
What’s happening with the Marlon signing ? Need centre backs a bit lively.
I just listened to Tony Khans transfer news and I wasn’t impressed so don’t hold your breath on anyone of much good arriving as he seems happy with what we have ?
I would not bank on another CB what’s happening about Marlon is he having a medical or not or has he got lost in London or. Hijacked by Villa Lads there will be no other CB Tah would be a show of intent of where the clubs heading we can always play LeMarchand who arrived with Seri which says it all
Does that twat Khan know what a centre back is for christ sake have a word Scotty.
Keep the faith COYW
So is Kongolo another dead deal ?. I agree with Richard another defeat on Monday.
Can anybody at Fulham explain why no centre backs being signed?
Keep the faith, losing the will!!!
