Former Watford Sporting Director has given a verdict of what he makes of the Nigerian winger
Filippo Grimaldi has revealed what he thinks of Ademola Lookman, amid links with Serie A side, Atalanta.
Grimaldi in an exclusive interview with Tuttomercatoweb described the Nigerian winger as a ‘typical English winger’.
The scout said he has known the RB Leipzig player since his days at Charlton Athletic.
“I’ve seen him since he was at Charlton, since he was a kid. He is a typical English winger, reactive, very ‘annoying’, but he must find the right connection with the team. It has a one-on-one that in Italy can make a difference, even if at the moment it hasn’t shown itself to be an absolute crack.”
Atalanta are interested in procuring the services of Lookman whose future is yet to be settled. He played at Leicester on loan last season and was at Fulham two seasons ago.
A Serie A switch has been put on paper for the Super Eagles winger.
