Leicester Want Ademola Lookman For Keeps


Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed his desire to strike a permanent transfer deal for on-loan winger Ademola Lookman, Megasportsarena.com reports.

The 24-year-old Nigeria international has had a decent spell with the Foxes since arriving on loan from RB Leipzig in the summer, with an impressive return of eight goals and one assist in all competitions.

It would likely cost Leicester £14million to sign Lookman permanently.

Leicester would surely do well to keep a talent like that in their squad, and Rodgers has confirmed he’d love the chance to keep working with the Nigeria international.

“He is a young player I really like and he has done very well in his time here. We will discuss that over the coming weeks and if it’s possible I’d love to be able to do something because I think there is still growth in him.

“We just have to wait and see from a financial perspective if that’s something we can do. He gives us real healthy competition and challenges [Harvey] Barnes in that left-sided position because that’s where he’s at his best. He is the type of player that of course I’d like to have.”

Lookman has previously had spells with Everton and Fulham as well, but he finally seems to have found his feet at the King Power Stadium.
