Super Eagles winger Ademola Lookman has reacted after joining Serie A giant Atalanta from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

The 24-year-old Nigeria international spent last season on loan at King Power Stadium where he made 42 appearances for  Leicester City and scored nine goals with five assists in the process.

Lookman penned a four-year contract with Atalanta with a fee in the region of €15m despite Black and Blues revealing contract details in terms of duration and amount paid.

However, the Super Eagles forward took to his social media handle with an excitement and happiness by saying happy to be in my new home after completing his move to Serie A club, Atalanta.

Lookman could make his debut in Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Valencia. Atalanta begin their quest for a first Serie A title against Sampdoria on August 13 at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

Everton Academy graduate made his Super Eagles debut on 25 March in the 0-0 with Ghana in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification play-off fixture before making his first start in the returned leg in Abuja as the three-time African champions played a 1-1 scored draw and failed to qualified to November tournament in Qatar.

Lookman has since gone on to score his first national team goal against Sao Tome and Principe.
