West Ham United could be making a move for Atalanta forward Ademola Lookman, according to The Mirror. 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’s performance in the Europa League final was truly remarkable. His hat-trick against Bayer Leverkusen earned him praise from pundits like Ally McCoist and a rare 10/10 rating from L’Equipe. He also played a vital role in previous knockout matches.

While Lookman’s performance was historic, his Serie A record is less prolific. Additionally, his price tag is likely to be high, especially after his Europa League heroics. West Ham’s ability to sign him might depend on resolving the Lucas Paqueta situation and any potential transfer fees (if any) from his sale.

With Tim Steidten leading the charge in the transfer window, West Ham is actively seeking reinforcements. Lookman is one of many players being considered, but securing his signature will require careful planning and potentially significant investment.

    Another dubious one.
    Atalanta will now be in the champions league would he really want to miss out on that?

    No doubt Scamacca will have a few words of wisdom for him

  • Hammeroo says:

    Seems like lazy reporting to me. You could also speculate that every other team looking to buy a left sided attacker is looking to buy him. As if it would be that simple!

    Are you sure team mate scamacca wouldn’t say don’t go there , they totally demoralised me?
