Despite an electric start, Ademola Lookman’s career at Everton never really got going.
The winger was signed in 2017 after scoring 12 goals in 49 games for Charlton Athletic as a teenager, with him costing the Toffees £11m. He could hardly have hoped for a better start, scoring within minutes of his Premier League debut against Manchester City in a 4-0 win.
However, he would end up making just 48 appearances all in all for the Merseyside outfit, scoring just four times. That didn’t stop RB Leipzig spending £22.5m to take him to Germany after he bagged five goals and four assists in 11 games on loan at the Bundesliga outfit in 2018. He managed just 13 games, though, before joining Fulham on loan in the summer.
Should Everton have kept Lookman?
On Sunday, he was in action against Sheffield United, and put in an impressive display. He even scored a wonder goal in a 1-1 draw, and that led to plenty of praise from Everton supporters. There were many who even suggested that the Toffees should never have let him go, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what they had to say about Lookman
So good to watch Lookman, get him back for Iwobi

Selling Lookman could come back to bite Everton.
Comfortable on the ball, quick acceleration and can play anywhere in attack.
Will be calls for the England squad before long.
Far more talented than Grealish imo

Lookman showed moments of brilliance today, was ruined at Everton by poor management, chose to leave but I’ve seen him and DCL play well together before, imagine him under carlo

If that’s the same Lookman who was at Everton, I always thought he’d do ok. Sam didn’t fancy him
Some goal for Fulham

@TonyKhan you have a gem in Lookman. Sad we couldn’t develop him at Everton.
