Nigerian born English striker joins RB-Leipzig

German Bundesliga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 25/07/2019

Nigerian born English striker Ademola Lookman has completed his move from Everton to RB Leipzig, according to reports.

Lookman joined Everton from Charlton in 2017 but he has found his feet in Germany with the Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

Lookman,21, struggled to make an impact in Everton but he hit the ground running in Germany where he was sent on loan last season with Leipzig.

The striker has made the move permanent, signing a five-year deal for a fee believed to be around £22.5million.

He was an academy play at Charlton, upon the completion of the move, Lookman said: “I am very happy to be back here and would like to continue where I left off in the second half of 2018 for RB Leipzig.

“Of course, I am also looking forward to seeing my teammates again and would like to help the team to continue to celebrate great successes.

“Finally I can play again in the Red Bull Arena in front of this great backdrop and the fans.

“And last but not least, I would like to thank God, the fans and RB Leipzig for making my move possible.”

The winger scored five goals in eleven games during his last stint in the Bundesliga and will be looking to emulate English sensation Jadon Sancho, who enjoyed a brilliant 2018/19 season with Borussia Dortmund.

Lookman also joins Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu at Leipzig, who sealed a season-long loan move to the club.
