posted onAugust 20, 2022

If you’re going to spend your money on something, it may as well be on the best football in the world. Lookman will be an Atalanta player this season, having signed a four-year contract to join the Bergamo club earlier this month. "I am explosive, exciting, like to score goals, set up goals, make things happen," said Lookman following his move from RB Leipzig.

The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at Premier League club Leicester City, and has also played for Charlton Athletic, Everton and Fulham in his club career. The Foxes' manager Brendan Rodgers, has already lamented that he was disappointed to miss out on signing the Super Eagles star on a permanent basis.

"I would have loved to have signed Ademola, who was great here last season and got over 10 goals and assists, but we weren’t able to do that," said the Northern Irishman. Lookman, meanwhile, is simply eager to play football and believes he will fit in well with the attacking style deployed by La Dea.

“I’m happy to be here, it’s been a long time in terms of knowing the interest of the club, how interested they were in me and now I’m just ready to get to work,” the Nigerian international added.

“I think for me the platform Serie A is amazing, it’s a massive club in Italy and plays attacking, great football, so for me it was an easy decision to make really.”

Lookman will hope to make a major statement in Italian football this weekend when Atalanta welcome Serie A champions AC Milan to the Gewiss Stadium, a match you can see LIVE on SuperSport Football, SuperSport Maximo 2, SuperSport Maximo 360 and SuperSport GOtv Select 1.
