Nigerian international, Ademola Lookman is set to undergo medicals as his move to Italian Serie A side, Atalanta B.C. gathers momentum.

The 24-year-old is set to join Gian Piero Gasperini's side from RB Leipzig for a reported fee of £12.5m

Sky Sports Italia reports that the winger arrived in Italy on Tuesday to have his medical examination ahead of his move to Bergamo.

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.
