Fulham are interested in signing Ademola Lookman this summer, but German outlet Kicker has suggested that RB Leipzig have set a hefty asking price for the attacker.
Scott Parker’s side have lost both of their opening two Premier League games. However, there were positive signs at the weekend as the Cottagers fought back from 4-1 to give Leeds a good scare.
Nevertheless, Fulham fans will be hoping to see the club enjoy a productive end to the window. And it appears that they have their eye on the 22-year-old.
Kicker reports that Fulham have confirmed their interest in Lookman. It is noted that they are keen to take the former Everton man on loan.
However, the report suggests that Leipzig, in an ideal world, would like to recoup as much of the £16.5 million that they spent to sign him permanently last year.
It remains to be seen if the two clubs can reach an agreement. But it is currently difficult to see Leipzig not being open to offers for Lookman.
Unfortunately, his return to Germany has been underwhelming. He is yet to feature this season. And he failed to score or provide an assist in any competition last term.
He would however, arguably be worth the gamble for Fulham if he joins on loan. Lookman has previously shown glimpses of being a fantastic talent.
And Fulham may argue that a loan move to Craven Cottage could ultimately prove beneficial to Leipzig should they decide to cash in and want to recoup a significant fee for the youngster.
