Lookman increases the Nigerian connect at Leicester

Ademola Lookman completed a loan switch from RB Leipzig to premier league side, Leicester City on transfer deadline day.

The former Everton winger joins Super Eagles duo Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho at the King Power Stadium for the rest of the 2021/22 football season.

Lookman played on loan last season at Fulham where he scored four goals before they were relegated to the English Championship.

However, Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers saw enough and was impressed by the former England youth international. The ex-Liverpool Coach is hoping for a long-term replacement for Marc Albrighton and the Nigerian fits his playing style.

Lookman is hoping to get a chance with the Super Eagles of Nigeria and playing well for Leicester City could enhance that opportunity especially with Iheanacho and Ndidi putting in good words for him with the national team Coach, Gernot Rohr.
