Ademola Lookman could head back to the Bundesliga with the new manager of RB Leipzig Jesse Marsch expected to hand him another opportunity for a return to the club.

 

 

Lookman who is currently on loan at English Premier League side Fulham is expected to return to his roots in Germany with a new manager already in sight, since Julian Nagglesman, who looks set to join Bayern Munich never looked his way.

 

It became clear that his role at the Saxony based club was on the bench and the only way to save the formerly red hot Everton star was to let him gain quality time elsewhere.

 

Joining RB Leipzig in 2019, the Englishman was able to score five goals in eleven appearances for the club.

 

A new top shot at Fulham

 

To grant him quality football, Julian Nagglesman had to send him on loan to Fulham for the rest of the season.

 

However, at the English club, he became a regular in the club’s quest to avoid relegation from the Premier League after just a year from the EFL Championship.

 

In all outings for Fulham, Ademola Lookman netted four times for the club.

 

But this appears not to be enough for the club to leapfrog the drop zone which could see them return to the EFL Championship next season.

 

Back to Germany, new head coach, Jesse Marsch could hand him a lifeline even as the manager kickstart a new life with the Saxony based club.

 

Suitors waiting for Lookman

 

After showing a bit of flash in the EPL, the 23-year old footballer is already attracting interest from some of the top clubs in Europe who could queue in for his services if RB Leipzig is willing to sell him.

 

According to Fussball Transfers, Leipzig is demanding 17 million euros for the promising English Winger.

 

As per the online portal, the Bundesliga side had placed a 17 million euros tag on the player if Fulham should sign him permanently.

 

Champions League hopefuls Leicester City are also said to be interested in Ademola Lookman.
