Lookman had an amazing debut campaign at Atalanta, and he has been rewarded for his brilliance
Lookman had an outstanding debut campaign with Atalanta. The 25-year-old attacker just joined the club last summer from RB Leipzig for €9.2million, and he repaid every penny spent on him.
Lookman nicked 15 goals and eight assists in 33 games for the La Dea last season. However, his brilliance could only help the club to a 6th-place finish in the Serie A.
Following Lookman’s performances, he was nominated for the Player of the Award season alongside Liverpool-linked Teun Koopmeiners and Marten de Roon.
The club have now announced that Lookman has won the award. This means he is the first Nigerian player to win the award in Atalanta’s history.
Lookman had a torrid end to the season because of injuries. But he would look to improve when the new season begins in August.
