Ademola Lookman set for Atalanta medical ahead of €15m move


Nigerian winger Ademola Lookman is set to have a medical ahead of a €15 million move to Atalanta, according to reports in Italy.

The 24-year-old, under contract at Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, spent the last two seasons on loan at Premier League sides Fulham and Leicester City.

Sky Sport Italia report he is in Bergamo for a medical ahead of a move from the German Cup holders and deal could be completed soon.

Lookman started his career with Charlton Athletic and was an important member of the England under-20 team which won the World Cup in 2017, scoring three goals en route to the final – including in the last-16 and semi-finals.

He moved to Everton that summer but failed to nail down a regular starting spot and moved to Leipzig on loan the following season before returning to Goodison Park.

In 2018-19, he made 24 appearances across all competitions for Everton but returned to Leipzig on a permanent basis at the end of the campaign.

Last season he appeared 42 times in all competitions for Leicester City, scored eight times and provided five assists.
