With only 20 years of age, the England under-21 forward will remain at Everton, coach Marco Silva said on Monday

After spending the first semester of 2018 in the German Bundesliga, playing with RB Leipzig in eleven matches and scoring five times, Ademola Lookman seems to be “locked” in Everton.

The Toffees’ boss told The Guardian today about the future of many players, and he said “he is our player and he stays,” about Lookman.

The attacker has played with the English National Team in the U19, U20 and U21 divisions, scoring four goals.

Meanwhile, he has defended the jerseys of Charlton Athletic and Everton in England, while he just played in Germany with Leipzig before the summer.

But Marco Silva has said he will not sell or re-loan Lookman this season, even after the German side is asking for his return.

“It is not easy for us as a club to sign some players because in normal situations they ask a lot of money and also we have to make the right decisions,” he said about the team looking for additions only.
