It has been confirmed by RB Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick that Everton loanee Ademola Lookman is wanted by the German club on a permanent basis.
And what’s more Toffees boss Sam Allardyce has admitted that the Blues would listen to offers for the 20-year-old winger.
It is news which has infuriated the masses of Blues supporters who cannot believe that they would be willing to let the youngster leave the club this summer.
Fans weren’t keen on the England U21 starlet leaving in January to the Bundesliga and they’re even more unhappy after hearing Big Sam’s transfer revelation.
Lookman only joined the club in 2017 from Charlton Athletic but after starring in the U20s World Cup win last summer supporters were keen to see him merge into the first-team.
But after failing to gain more time at Goodison and making the starting line-up just once, he made the move to Leipzig in a bid to get more minutes under his belt.
And now with the news that Lookman is a sought-after man and Everton will consider offers, the Blues faithful are absolutely irate and feel that this must be some sort of joke.
Here is a selection of Twitter responses in reaction to the news that Lookman could be on his way out of the club:
Sack Him before he can do damage

Just entertaining that lookman goes is enough. The longer he is there the worse it will get. Again this is a “I was right again” moment from Sam, does it every week, think he lives in a parallel universe and gets confused with reality
