Everton eyed up Leipzig’s Augustin
The former Parisian striker may be involved in an exchange deal with Ademola Lookman if they fail to cough up £38 million.
Former PSG striker is Everton’s Marco Silva target for the winter transfer window. However, Leipzig set a £38 million price tag on the player. In this situation, Ademola Lookman can become part of the deal to brought down the price for the attacker a little bit.
Silva hopes to reduce the price for the player because £38 million is a very heavy amount for the Toffees. Augustin is a player with a very heavy temper and he is a constant participant in conflicts with the club and the national team. Nevertheless, he fits perfectly into the game, which the Portuguese expert is trying to instill at Everton.
Leipzig are very interested in young Lookman, 21, who already played for them on loan. If Everton are ready to sacrifice the young attacker, then Augustin’s transition will cost the club much cheaper.
In the current season, Augustin was able to score 8 goals in 23 games for Leipzig.
