Following the signing of Ola Aina from Torino on a season-long loan deal, The Cottagers have added another Nigerian to their team
Fulham have signed former Everton star Ademola Lookman from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on a season-long loan deal.
Lookman joins Fulham after struggling at Leipzig last season. The 22-year-old rose through the ranks at Charlton before signing for Everton in 2017.

However, despite arriving at Goodison Park as a highly-rated youngster, Lookman never really got going and was sold to RB Leipzig permanently in 2019, having spent six months previously on loan at the club.
Although he impressed during his loan stint, the former England youth star struggled last season, making just 13 appearances in all competitions for Leipzig.
His move to Fulham gives him an opportunity to get his career back on track, and he has revealed he can’t wait to get started at Craven Cottage.
“I’m glad to have it over the line and done now. I’m glad I can be here to help the team,” Lookman told Fulham website.
“After the conversations I had with Scott Parker, I got a great feeling, that’s the working relationship I want to have. He’s young and hungry, and I’m young and hungry as well, so it’s a good match.”
Lookman represented England at youth level, but he recently switched intentional allegiance to Nigeria. He joins Ola Aina, who was also signed on a loan deal from Torino, in the Fulham team.
