Atalanta are now set to seal the signature of RB Leipzig winger Ademola Lookman.
Lookman spent the 2021/22 season on loan at Premier League side Leicester City but he has now returned to Leipzig. Gianluca di Marzio has now reported that the move is in the pipeline and only the last few details of the transfer are missing.
The move is one step away from completion, with the England-born Nigeria international expected to move to La Dea on a permanent basis from the German club. While the player will help bolster Atalanta’s attacking line, they have also moved for Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti, who spent the previous season on loan at Empoli.
The Italian impressed for the Azzurri and Atalanta’s offer for him is currently being judged by the Nerazzurri. If the move goes through, it will be their third signing of the summer after Lookman and Merih Demiral.
