“He (Lookman) spoke to me at the end of the season about what he wanted to do and what was his desire. Like you know, at the beginning of last season he spoke to me about his desire to leave the club.
“I said no, no and no, even if we received a very good offer to sell him, for our structure, no because I saw in him, and I keep seeing in him (his quality).
“Then came an offer to the club, and like you know I don’t like to talk about this side of things, but the had just two years left on his contract with us and so then we are talking about many, many things.”
Those are the words of Everton manager Marco Silva, who has made it clear that he didn’t initially want to see Ademola Lookman leave the club during the most recent summer transfer window. The future of Lookman had been speculated over for a long time, but in the end, he made the move back to RB Leipzig which seemed to be the preferred move for the youngster’s career.
