Lookman joins Atalanta

Nigerian international, Ademola Lookman has joined the Italian Serie A side, Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio.

The 24-year-old joined the Serie A side from RB Leipzig in a deal that is believed to be worth €15m plus add-ons.

The winger signed a four-year deal with Gian Piero Gasperini's side.

The Super Eagles star took to his Twitter handle to express his excitement after completing his switch from Germany to Italy.

“Happy to be in my new home ???????? @Atalanta_BC,” Lookman wrote on his Twitter handle.

Lookman spent last season on loan at Leicester City where he scored 8 goals and provided 6 assists in 41 appearances across all competitions for Brendan Roger's side.

Prior to his move to the King Power Stadium, the winger was on a season-long loan at Fulham where he netted 4 goals in 34 appearances.

Lookman made his international debut for Nigeria against Ghana in March during the first leg of the World Cup play-offs in Kumasi.

He scored his first goal for the three-time African Champions in their 10-0 mauling against Sao Tome and Principe in the Nations Cup qualifiers in June.
