I thought news about Ademola Lookman had gone quiet, especially since he found the back of the net in the recent friendly for Everton.

Well, I say found the back of the net, he scored a first-half hattrick in our 22-0 victory over ATV Irdning at the weekend as Marco Silva opened up our pre-season game portion and we took to the pitch for the first time this summer.

Bild (via the Daily Post’s transfer ticker from yesterday) quote Leipzig’s manager Ralf Rangnick as saying that he’s in ‘constant contact’ with Everton over the 20-year-old.

I wonder if we’ve left him on hold and he likes the music?

Now, Leipzig’s interest in the player is hardly new and this isn’t the first time they seem to want to conduct their summer transfer business via the media as Rangnick is clearly a man who doesn’t know how to shut up about another clubs’ player, reaction on social media to his latest blathering has been exactly how you’d expect.
