OFFICIAL: Super Eagles Forward Ademola Lookman Joins Atalanta From RB Leipzig.

Italian club side Atalanta have officially signed Ademola Lookman from Bundesliga club side  RB Leipzig in a permanent transfer believed to be worth €15m including add-ons.

The player has signed a contract tying him to Atalanta until June 2026 with an option to extend to 2027.

The player spent last season on loan in the Premier League with Leicester City, where he scored eight goals and provided five assists in 42 competitive games.

Born in London and choosing to represent Nigeria at international level, the 24-year-old can play on the left or right wing of attack, as well as a False 9 role or behind the centre-forward.

Lookman’s previous clubs include Charlton Athletic, Everton and Fulham all in England.

On the international scene, Lookman played for England at various youth levels until switching to Nigeria, the country of his parents, earning four senior caps for Nigeria with one goal.

The arrival of Lookman also means that Atalanta can now release Aleksei Miranchuk to undergo his medical with Torino, in what will be a loan move with option to buy.
