Transfer: RB Leipzig set to break Nigerian transfer record

Written by on July 17, 2019


RB Leipzig are ready to break the Nigerian transfer record for a winger, with Everton reportedly agreeing to sell Ademola Lookman to the Bundesliga club.

According to Sky Sports, the deal taking Lookman to RB Leipzig is worth up to £22.5m.


It is expected to be tied up by Wednesday.

The most expensive transfer involving a Nigerian winger, is Ahmed Musa’s switch to Leicester City in the summer of 2016.

CSKA Moscow pocketed £16.6million from the deal.


Lookman, 21, already played for RB Leipzig in the second half of the 2017/2018 season and was directly involved in nine goals (5 goals, 4 assists) from 11 appearances in the German top flight.
