West Ham sets sights on Europa League hero Lookman.

by Admin

Nigeria international Ademola Lookman has emerged as a major transfer target for English Premier League club, West Ham, following his heroic performance for Atalanta in the final of the UEFA Europa League on Wednesday, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

Lookman has been in exceptional form for the Blue and Blacks since joining the club from Leipzig two seasons ago. His performance in the 2023/24 season has been his best yet. Prior to Wednesday’s final against Bayer Leverkusen, Lookman had already scored 12 goals and provided eight assists – the best goal contributions in his career. The Super Eagles star crowned his impressive campaign with a hat-trick against the German side, who had gone unbeaten in 51 games that season.

Lookman’s performance at the Aviva Arena in Dublin, Ireland, will be remembered for ages as it helped Atalanta secure their first silverware in 61 years. Such a display hardly goes unnoticed, and West Ham is now interested in signing the Nigerian ahead of the 2024/25 season.

According to Claret and Hugh, the 26-year-old has caught the eye of the Hammers’ new manager, Julen Lopetegui. “West Ham United could be making a move for Atalanta forward Ademola Lookman,” the website wrote. “Lookman’s impressive performance, including a hat-trick in the Europa League final, has caught the eye of new manager Julen Lopetegui. The 26-year-old Nigerian international is seen as a potential solution to West Ham’s need for quality on the left wing. His 15 goals and 8 assists in 43 appearances for Atalanta this season solidify his attacking capabilities.”

Lookman became the first player to score a hat-trick in a European final since the German Jupp Heynckes celebrated a hat-trick for Borussia Moenchengladbach in the 1974-1975 edition of the UEFA Cup against Dutch team Twente. He is currently valued at €30m and has a contract with Atalanta that expires in 2026.
