Ademola Lookman, a forward for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, has officially joined Atalanta from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

The Serie A club withheld information on the contract’s length and cost, although rumours claim that the Nigerian international signed a four-year deal with the Black and Blues for somewhere about €15 million.

The winger moved to Leipzig in 2019 from Everton, but his inability to play frequently for the German top division team led to his transfer to Fulham and Leicester City.

Prior to the loan period, Lookman played for the Red Bulls in 24 competitive games, scoring five goals and assisting on four more.

“Atalanta BC are delighted to announce the signing of the player Ademola Lookman from RB Leipzig on a permanent basis,” a statement from the club read.

Lookman spoke for the Foxes in the previous season. In 42 games at the King Power Stadium, which included the Premier League, the FA Cup, the English League Cup, and the Uefa Europa League, he scored eight goals and contributed eight assists.
