Man United ‘Willing To Offer’ £50m to Sign ‘Worldclass’ Serie A winger with 27-goals/assists amid strong Liverpool and Chelsea interest


This summer, Manchester United is reportedly interested in signing Ademola Lookman and is prepared to make a bid of €60 million (£50 million) to acquire him.

Lookman had an incredible season with Atalanta, leading to a hat-trick against Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League final. With this victory, La Dea took home their first continental trophy.

The Nigerian winger scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists in all competitions during this memorable performance. Such an exceptional season has inevitably led to other clubs keeping an eye on the former Fulham player.

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 €60 million 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.
