Bayern Munich show interest in Ademola Lookman

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have reportedly shown interest in Super Eagles and Atalanta forward Ademola Lookman. SportsRation reports.

This development comes as Bayern look to bolster their squad following a third-place finish last season, behind Bayer Leverkusen and Stuttgart.

Lookman’s Rise to Prominence

The 26-year-old Lookman joined Atalanta from Leipzig in the summer of 2022, after a challenging stint in Germany. His breakthrough came when he scored a hat-trick in the Europa League final, leading Atalanta to their first trophy since the 1960s with a victory over Bayer Leverkusen.

Bayern’s Interest

According to Sky Germany, Bayern Munich sees Lookman as an ideal candidate to strengthen their squad and help reclaim the Bundesliga title. The Bavarians are reportedly willing to offer up to €30 million for the former Everton forward, despite Atalanta’s asking price being set at €25 million.

Market Competition

Lookman’s impressive performances have not gone unnoticed, attracting interest from several top clubs. However, Bayern Munich’s recent move indicates their serious intent to secure the Nigerian international’s services. As of now, no formal negotiations have been reported.

Lookman’s Future

With the interest from Bayern Munich, Lookman could be set for a return to the Bundesliga, where he previously struggled to make an impact with Leipzig. His potential move to Bayern would be a significant step in his career, offering him a chance to compete at the highest level in German football.
