Crystal Palace are keen on signing RB Leipzig winger Ademola Lookman, according to reports.

English tabloid, The Athletic revealed that Lookman is wanted by new coach Patrick Vieira and he’s hoping a deal can be agreed with his club.

Lookman spent last season on loan in the Premier league with Fulham, but they refused to take up the option of signing him permanently following their relegation back to Championship.

According to The Athletic’s report, Palace have held “persistent interest” in Lookman, and they could now look to make a move for the 23-year-old this summer.

The former England Under-21 international featured in 34 top-flight games for the Cottagers and recorded four goals and four assists for Scott Parker’s men.

Lookman could become Palace second signing after Michael Olise who joined from Reading last week.
