Super Eagles Winger Close To Land At Serie A Side Atalanta

Report from transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that Super Eagles winger Ademola Lookman is edging closer to a move to Serie A side Atalanta.

The Nigerian winger was deemed surplus to requirements at his parent club RB Leipzig which resulted in consecutive loans to English clubs Fulham and Leicester City.

While his time at Leicester went very well, the Foxes opted against activating an option to buy clause which was previously inserted in the deal that tool him to the King Power Stadium.

It seems RB Leipzig will be getting their wish of cashing in on the Nigerian with Fabrizio Romano reporting that talks are at a final stage between Leipzig and Atalanta while personal terms have been sorted.

The silky attacker was unavailable for the Super Eagles during their tour to the United States earlier this summer. But he took part in the African Cup Of Nations Qualifiers against Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe, scoring his maiden Super Eagles goal against the latter team.

Lookman scored eight goals and provided five assists during his time at Leicester. And he was a valuable asset for Brendan Rodgers during his loan spell.
