Ademola Lookman is looking forward to a successful time at his new Serie A club, Atalanta, reports Completesports.
Atalanta announced the arrival of the Nigeria international from Bundesliga club, RB Leipzig on Thursday night.
RB Leipzig received €15m including add-ons for the talented winger.
“I’m happy to be here; I am really happy because I have known about the club’s interest in me for some time, and now I am ready to get to work,” Lookman told Atalanta’s Youtube channel.
“Here, it’s incredible; I think Atalanta is a great club, a great club in Italy, and that they play a great attacking football that they like so much and lends themselves to my characteristics. It was a simple decision to make.”
” I would say that I am an explosive player, exciting; I like to score and assist.
“I like to create dangerous situations, for the rest I consider myself a chilled, relaxed guy.
“My desire here at Atalanta is to win as much as possible. I want to grow and do well, but at the same time, I want the team to grow also with my contribution because the value of the group is important.”
Lookman joined RB Leipzig from Everton in 2019 for around €17m, but failed to tie down a regular playing berth at the German club.
The 24-year-old played just 24 games across all competitions for the club, scoring five goals and recording four assists.
Lookman spent last season on loan at Leicester City where he scored eight goals and provided five assists in 42 appearances across all competitions.
He also spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Fulham, where he contributed eight goals.
