Ndidi, Iheanacho Set to Receive Another Nigerian as teammates At Leicester

Leicester City are reportedly edging closer to an agreement with RB Leipzig to bring Ademola Lookman back to the Premier League.

The winger, if the deal sails through, will become a teammate with Super Eagles duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi.

There is no consensus yet on the fee, but according to Sky Sports News, the German side are prepared to lessen their demands.

The report further states that the gap between the two clubs’ positions is much smaller than it was 24 hours ago.

There is a race against time to get a deal done, but the logistics are easier because Lookman is English.

The 24-year-old joined Fulham on loan last season, scoring four goals in 34 appearances.
