Leicester City target former Fulham winger Ademola Lookman

Leicester City target former Fulham winger Ademola Lookman

Leicester’s productive summer

As always, Leicester have had a strong summer of recruitment. They had added full-back Ryan Bertrand, midfielder Boubakary Soumare and exciting forward Patson Daka within a month of the transfer window opening, as they hunt for the Champions League finish that has eluded them on the final day of the season in consecutive campaigns.

Injury to defender Wesley Fofana forced a minor rethink, but the addition of Southampton defender Jannick Vestergaard appears, on the surface at least, a shrewd acquisition.

Perhaps most importantly, they have kept hold of their existing players this summer, having batted away interest from Arsenal in James Maddison, keeping their chief creator for at least another season.

However, they are still on the hunt for one further attacking signing.

Lookman emerges as a target

In the dying days of the window, that attacking signing could well be RB Leipzig winger Ademola Lookman. As per the reliable David Ornstein of the Athletic, the Foxes are looking to agree on an initial loan with an option to buy for the former Fulham loanee.

Despite ultimately being relegated, Lookman impressed at times for Fulham last season, netting 4 goals and 4 assists in his 34 appearances for Scott Parker’s side.

However, Lookman has yet to nail down a place in the Bundesliga outfit’s starting side, and with the return of Dominic Szoboszlai to full fitness, may continue to fail to do so. As a result, a loan move may be the best option for all parties.
