Fulham are in talks with RB Leipzig over a deal to bring Ademola Lookman back to the Premier League.

Boss Scott Parker wants to bring the 22-year-old winger to Craven Cottage on loan for the season.

But Lookman struggled to make an impact in the Bundesliga since making his switch permanent, featuring on just 11 occasions in the league last term.
