Lookman on Juventus radar


By Peter Akinbo.

Ahead of Juventus fixture against Atalanta on Sunday (today), it has emerged that Nigerian forward, Ademola Lookman who is currently plying his trade for La Dea is on the Bianconeri radar, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

This fixture gives them a chance to monitor the Nigeria International.

It is customary for the black and whites to target the best players at other Serie A clubs and one man who fits that description now is Lookman.

The 25-year-old has been in terrific form for Atalanta this term and has scored 11 goals and provided three assists from 18 competitive games this season.

Nine of those strikes have come from 17 league games this term, which is an impressive return considering he is not even a number 9.

A report on Tuttojuve reveals the Bianconeri will scout the former Everton man when they face La Dea in their next match and will take in more information about the attacker.

However, the transfer will hardly happen this month because La Dea is not going to want to lose their key man in an important campaign like this so the match will just offer a scouting opportunity for Juventus to get enough information about his suitability for their system.

Juventus were handed a 15-point deduction on Friday which has seen them drop from third place to tenth in the Italian Serie A table.
