Everton and Leicester to go head-to-head for £17m striker

Jean-Kevin Augustin RB Leipzig Everton Leicester City

The Telegraph (opens in new tab) say that Everton and Leicester have made informal enquiries about the 21-year-old.

Augustin is reportedly edging closer to leaving RB Leipzig and is expected to depart after their DFB-Pokal final against Bayern Munich this month.

Everton are looking to add a body up front after Cenk Tosun fell out of favour at Goodison Park.

With Leicester facing a huge battle to keep Monaco loanee Youri Tielemans, they may well look to spend their money more shrewdly elsewhere.

Augustin has eight goals and two assists in 28 appearences this season and would be available for an estimated £17.4million.
