RB Leizip have been told to pay £28m plus add-ons to Everton for Ademola Lookman.
Claims have emerged the Bundesliga side have tabled a fresh £22m offer for the 20-year-old winger yesterday.
However Sky Sports are claiming the Toffees rejected that bid and have told them to cough up more to land the attacker.
Ex-Charlton Athletic man Lookman shone on loan at Leipzig last season.
His form persuaded them to table a £12m offer back in July that was immediately knocked back.
Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick has made no secret of his desire to bring the youngster back.
He said earlier this summer: “We want him back and he wants to come.”
They now have until August 31 to wrap-up the deal before the transfer window closes.
