Championship side Derby County are reportedly interested in a loan swoop for Everton striker Ademola Lookman.

Lookman was signed last January by Ronald Koeman as a player for the future, but he has shown signs of promise when called upon.

Lookman, who is an established England Under-20 international, would be the perfect fit for Rams boss Gary Rowett, who is keen to add a pacey player to his attacking options.
