Leicester City close to closing deal for underdog winger RB Leipzig

Ademola Lookman scores for RB Leipzig on her debut

Leicester City appear poised to bestow a return to the Premier League to former Everton and Fulham England youth international Ademola Lookman, who is going through your medical exam before a one season loan away from the Saxony team RB Leipzig.

If a deal is completed, Lookman will be the fifth summer signing for Brendan Rodgers after Leicester secured deals for Patson Daka, Boubacakay Soumaré, Jannick Vestergaard and Ryan Bertrand in what is urgently needed in quality depth for the Foxes.

Lookman would arrive on loan to King Power Stadium during the 2021-22 campaign, with a purchase option inserted in the agreement.

A new beginning for Lookman in Leicester

A product of the Charlton academy setup, Ademola Lookman was once part of a crop of young Englishmen with high expectations. However, after moving from The Valley to Everton in 2017, Lookman couldn’t really kick and was first loaned out to RB Leipzig the following year and bought by the Saxony side directly a year later.

There he failed to pass the grade with Julian Nagelsmann overall and was eventually transferred to Fulham last season with Scott Parker. Given the plethora of attacking options at Red Bull Arena with Jesse Marsch, Lookman is once again seen as a surplus of requirements, but could reignite his career with Brendan Rodgers as the Foxes lack true depth in wide areas. Of attack.

With only Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton the only really open players on the books in Leicester despite the addition of Patson Daka and the continued employment of Ayoze Pérez, there is scope to suggest that Lookman could see considerable time with Rodgers this period, but it certainly will be. higher in the pecking order at King Power than their current employers.
