Broadhead shows there can be life after Lookman at Everton

Everton winger Ademola Lookman is a transfer target for RB Leipzig.

The Bundesliga outfit are reported by BBC Sport to be keen on re-signing the English youngster, who enjoyed a loan spell with them in the second half of 2017/18.

Lookman struggled to force his way into the Everton starting XI last term, and speculation is now rife that he will depart for the German top-flight again – only this time on a permanent basis.

Leipzig will have to fork out around £25 million if they want the 21-year-old, who has high potential.

Some Everton fans are against the idea of Lookman leaving the club having shown flashes of brilliance since signing from Charlton Athletic for £11 million in 2016 (BBC Sport).

But perhaps there can be life after Lookman, with youngster Nathan Broadhead impressing in pre-season.

 

TBR’s view

There is potential that Everton will regret selling Lookman, but Broadhead appears to be a starlet with a lot of talent.

Perhaps he can be the man for the Toffees to turn to if a sale happens.

Against FC Sion on Sunday he was a bright spark with his desire to be direct. Although he didn’t score or assist, he showed some great first touches and was generally very positive with the ball.

He certainly caught the eye in the injured Lookman’s absence.

The Welsh winger scooped the title-winning U23s’ Player of the Season award for his contributions in 2018/19, suggesting that he could well be ready for a shot with the first-team next term.
