Winger Ademola Luckman joins Leicester City in seasonal rental from RB Leipzig. Sky Sports says there is an opportunity to make the deal permanent.… First Everton The man made his Premier League debut for Toffee in 2016/17 at the age of 18. He plays for England U21, but he also has the right to play for Nigeria at a high level, and maybe we will get some recruitment in that direction. from Leicester’s team.
Fulham was impressed by the crafty midfielder last year. Read this sentence again because it puts him in a pretty exclusive company. The 23-year-old has four goals and four assists, which may not sound like a lot, but he also created as many chances as Jamie Vardy did last year. Fulham’s strikers have struggled to turn “striker kicks in dangerous positions” into goals last year, so it is fair to assume that he could have surpassed the four assists mark with better results.
By all accounts, Lukman will be the next in a long line of outstanding replacements for Riyad Mahrez. Interestingly, he doesn’t fit the mold because he is a right winger who is equally good on both sides and perhaps even more in the center. He offers intriguing tactical flexibility – a trait that manager Brendan Rogers will surely appreciate.
What he doesn’t offer protects in many ways. He has a very clever ball possession and has a good eye for passing, but he doesn’t keep his back at his best, and at 5’8 ” he isn’t going to give much in the air. It undoubtedly improves the attack and adds one or two dimensions that we do not currently have. Plus, and I can’t stress this enough, it’s a lot of fun to watch.
In theory that he will be the last signer transmission window for foxes (he speaks unwisely before closing the window). It looks like all the boxes are checked. I would normally do a poll here to ask how you rate Lookman, but instead, how about you just let us know in the comments?
