RB Leipzig hope to reach agreements to sign Everton's Ademola Lookman and Paris Saint-Germain's Christopher Nkunku this week, Kicker reports.

According to the German news outlet, RB Leipzig have made an improved offer of €22 million for Lookman who spent the second half of the 2017/18 season on loan at the Bundesliga club.

However, Everton are holding out for a fee of around €28 million for the 21-year-old winger who scored one goal and made two assists in 24 appearances for 'The Toffees' in the 2018/19 season.

Meanwhile, 'Die Roten Bullen' hope they can persuade PSG into selling Nkunku - a 21-year-old central midfielder - for less than €15 million.

Nkunku, who's under contract until 2020, made 29 appearances for PSG last season with four goals and two assists to his name.

So far, RB Leipzig have brought in Hannes Wolf (Red Bull Salzburg, €12 million) and Luan Candido (Palmeiras, €8 million) this summer.
