Man United ‘Willing To Offer’ £50m to Sign ‘Worldclass’ Serie A winger with 27-goals/assists amid strong Liverpool and Chelsea interest

Manchester United are willing to pay €60 million for Ademola Lookman, in order to bolster their attack.

Lookman’s impressive season has also caught the eye of Liverpool and Chelsea.

In an effort to bolster their alternatives up front, United is still pursuing Joshua Zirkzee of Bologna.

This summer, Manchester United is reportedly interested in signing Ademola Lookman and is prepared to make a bid of €60 million (£50 million) to acquire him.

Lookman had an incredible season with Atalanta, leading to a hat-trick against Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League final. With this victory, La Dea took home their first continental trophy.

The Nigerian winger scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists in all competitions during this memorable performance. Such an exceptional season has inevitably led to other clubs keeping an eye on the former Fulham player.

Having finished the season with a negative goal difference, a symptom of possessing a blunt attack that only scored 57 Premier League goals, Erik ten Hag will be eager to add more offensive firepower to his squad this summer.

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, via Sport Witness, United have identified Lookman as a potential solution to some of their issues in the final third, and are willing to splash the cash to land the 26-year-old.

While the purported €60 million asking price may appear excessive, Calciomercato suggest that Atalanta will only be considering ‘irrefutable’ offers for a player they deem pivotal to the success of their team.

Having played in England’s top flight previously, Lookman would need little time to adapt to the pressures of the British domestic game, and thus United’s hierarchy may see the wide forward as one of the brighter options on the market.

Antony has flattered to deceive so far in a Red Devils shirt, while the future of Marcus Rashford is uncertain.

The England international is ‘set for talks’ with Ten Hag, and has been the subject of interest from Arsenal.

GIVEMESPORT Key Statistic: Lookman was the first player in 49 years to score a hat-trick in a European final.

For these reasons, Ten Hag could find his forward options depleted going into next season, so making a move on Lookman may become increasingly urgent.

The south London-born man has previously impressed with Leicester and Fulham in the Premier League, with last season’s breakout displays finally capturing the eyes of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Described as being “world-class” and “unstoppable” after his display in the Europa League final, Lookman would add creativity, technical flair and goalscoring ability to a United frontline desperately in need of an injection of quality
