Share our post

English Premier League clubs Liverpool and Manchester United are at loggerheads for Super Eagles forward Ademola Lookman this summer.

Lookman has been impressive at Atalanta since he joined two seasons ago. The Nigeria international has registered 32 goals and 18 assists in 78 appearances for La Dea.

However, he raised eyebrows after his superb end to last season, when he scored a hattrick for Atalanta to help them to a resounding 3-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Europa League final.

Recently, there have been talks that Lookman is eyeing a return to the English Premier League, two years after he left Leicester City. And in a new development, per Caught Offside, Manchester United and Liverpool are interested in signing Lookman this summer.

Liverpool are looking to add to their firepower going into next season with new coach Arne Slot.

Meanwhile, Manchester United do not have enough quality on the wings, and Lookman could add a lot to the team with his experience and talent.

Lookman is valued at €40 million according to Transfermarkt. But Atalanta could demand up to €51 million for the deal to happen.
