Man United Show Interest To Sign Ademola Lookman For €60m

According to reports in Italy, Manchester United are interested in signing Ademola Lookman this summer, and are willing to offer €60m to get him.

Lookman enjoyed a spectacular season at Atalanta, including scoring a hat-trick in the Europa League final against Bayer Leverkusen. 

It was a triumph which saw La Dea win their first piece of continental silverware. 

This iconic display capped off a campaign in which the Nigerian winger netted 17 times and registered 10 assists across all competitions.

Inevitably, such a standout season has prompted a number of clubs to monitor the former Fulham player. 

While United are said to be keen on bringing Lookman to Old Trafford, they will face stiff competition for his signature, with Liverpool and Chelsea also understood to be willing to meet the asking price of €60m.

Having finished the season with a negative goal difference, a symptom of possessing a blunt attack that only scored 57 Premier League goals, Erik ten Hag will be eager to add more offensive firepower to his squad this summer. 

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, via Sport Witness, United have identified Lookman as a potential solution to some of their issues in the final third, and are willing to splash the cash to land the 26-year-old.

While the purported €60m asking price may appear excessive, Calciomercato suggest that Atalanta will only be considering ‘irrefutable’ offers for a player they deem pivotal to the success of their team. 

Having played in England’s top flight previously, Lookman would need little time to adapt to the pressures of the British domestic game, and thus United’s hierarchy may see the wide forward as one of the brighter options on the market.

Antony has flattered to deceive so far in a Red Devils shirt, while the future of Marcus Rashford is uncertain. 

The England international is ‘set for talks’ with Ten Hag, and has been the subject of interest from Arsenal.
