Atalanta face tough fight to keep Juventus target Ademola Lookman

Atalanta face tough fight to keep Juventus target Ademola Lookman

Atalanta face a fight to keep Ademola Lookman ahead of next season, with many clubs across Europe interested in the English-born attacker.

Lookman made history at the end of last season by scoring a hat-trick in the Europa League final as Atalanta defeated all-conquering Bayer Leverkusen to lift their first ever European trophy.

The Nigeria international has become an influential part of Gian Piero Gasperini’s team in Italy, making 77 appearances for the Serie A club in all competitions and returning 32 goals.

Lookman has also scored six goals in 23 games for the Super Eagles, including four in 12 this year.
And the former Leicester and Everton star is attracting admiring glances from a number of sides – with Juventus among the teams monitoring his situation.

Bayern Munich have watched him closely, while a number of Premier League teams retain an interest in Lookman.

The attacker is happy in Italy but is keeping his options open heading into pre-season.

Lookman is under contract with Atalanta until June 2026. He joined the Italian side two years ago from RB Leipzig.

The 26-year-old has previously played for four clubs in England.

He netted 12 times in 29 appearances for Charlton between 2015 and 2017 before adding four goals in 48 Everton outings.

After leaving Goodison Park for Leipzig, Lookman had loan spells at Fulham and Leicester.

He struck four goals in 35 games for the Cottagers, before bagging eight in 42 matches for the Foxes.
