Ademola Lookman agent optimistic of Nigeria switch, confirms ongoing talks

Published

Ademola Lookman agent is optimistic about his client’s switch to Nigeria and possibly play for the country in upcoming qualifiers and the AFCON in Cameroon.

 

The Agent of Ademola Lookman is still optimistic about the chances of the RB Leipzig speed star switching allegiance to Nigeria over England.

 

 

The former Everton forward had been linked with series of reports about his intention to dump England over a chance to represent the West Africans.

 

For Nigeria, there’s more at stake including the race for qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar as well as the AFCON in Cameroon.

 

How good is lookman?

His overall rating is about 70, although this has dropped a little bit.

 

One of the best areas he is good at is his ability to run at the ball with a very high pace and speed.

 

But how would this come to fruition? The 23-year old attacker has represented England at various age-grade level including the U19, U20 and U21.

 

Since he hasn’t represented the English team at the senior level, the chances of switching allegiance to are still wide open.

 

In 2018, he was approached by the Nigerian Football Federation president in a bid to persuade him to join the super eagles.

 

However, this opportunity was turned down in favour of the “Three Lions”  of England at that time. However, the current chances of representing the Three Lions are slim.

 

For now, there are still discussions about a possible switch to Nigeria and there is going back.

 

“Talks are ongoing over a call-up,” said the player’s agent.

 

What the words of his agent mean for Nigeria

The Super Eagles currently has an array of attackers making waves in Europe including Paul Onuachu, Simy Nwankwo, Kelechi Iheanacho, Terem Moffi, etc.

However, there’s still the need for fresh legs to come into the team. At least, he could offer what others may not at the moment.

 

He is one of the best in his position and what makes him stand out is his speed and pace.

 

The Stats 

2020/2021 Fulham

Appearances: 34

Goals: 4

2019/2020 RB Leipzig

Appearances: 11

Goals: 0

 

Will Ademola Lookman ever play for Nigeria? This is however dependent on the player’s intentions to switch allegiance to the country.

 

As the words of the agent, he is closer to announcing his decision to play for the country.

 

Expectations for the 2021/2022 football season

After departing Fulham where he had 34 appearances with four goals to his name, he makes a return to RB Leipzig.

 

With a new coach in charge of the club after Julian Nagglesman exit, Lookman is expected to fight for a place in the team.
