Leicester on the verge of signing RB Leipzig's Lookman before deadline

Leicester City are getting closer to reach an understanding with RB Leipzig to recruit Ademola Lookman before the transfer deadline.

The two sides have yet to settle on a price for Lookman, but the


club is willing to lower their expectations since the valuation difference between the two sides has narrowed significantly since Monday. 

It's now a crucial factor to consider to reach an agreement before the summer transfer market closes in the

Premier League

at 11 p.m. tonight. 

If an agreement can be reached, the 23-year-old, who spent last season as a loanee at Fulham, is eager to transfer. 

If Leipzig refuses to lower their asking price, Leicester will explore alternative wingers.

Last season, Lookman appeared in 35 matches for


in all tournaments, netting four goals as the club was demoted from England's top flight. 

The ex-Charlton winger played two and a half years for Everton before joining Leipzig on a permanent basis in July 2019, making only 13 appearances.
