Atalanta declined to disclose the contract’s length or fee, although rumors suggest that the Nigerian player committed to a four-year deal with the Serie A team for a sum close to €15 million.

The Super Eagles star man, who was on loan at Leicester City and had a remarkable spell there, will now pursue his professional career in Serie A.

The attacker switched from Everton to Leipzig in 2019, however his lack of regular playing time for the Bundesliga team resulted in his moves to Fulham and Leicester City.

Ademola Lookman, the latest Atalanta addition, played 24 competitive games with the Red Bulls, scoring five goals and setting up four more before joining Brendan Rodgers’ side on loan.

According to Ademola Lookman on his twitter page;

Lookman will make his debut appearance against Valencia on Saturday in a preseason friendly, while Atalanta will open their new season against Sampdoria on August 13 at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
