Fulham are in advanced talks with RB Leipzig over the loan signing of Ademola Lookman.

The 22-year-old was left out of Leipzig's squad for their Bundesliga game at Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

The German club said he was not selected "due to ongoing transfer discussions".

Lookman left Everton for Leipzig in a £22.5m deal last summer having previously impressed on loan but has struggled to make an impact for them since making the move permanent.

He failed to score in 13 appearances in all competitions for them last season and has not featured in any of Leipzig's three league and cup matches in the 2020/21 campaign.

Fulham may have conceded seven and be without a point after two games, but manager Scott Parker believes the team spirit which got them up last season and pushed Leeds all the way last week gives them a real chance of staying up this season.

Scott Parker's side have progressed to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, however, where they will face west London rivals Brentford at the Community Stadium on Thursday - also live on Sky Sports.
