Player description
On Wednesday 30th September 2020, Fulham announced the signing of Ademola Lookman on a season-long loan from RB Leipzig.

Born and raised in London, Lookman was spotted by Charlton Athletic while playing for local side Waterloo, and joined the Addicks in 2014.

Such was his progress, he made his first team debut a year later, just two weeks after his 17th birthday, and never looked back.

Having scored 12 times in little over a year for Charlton, the Premier League beckoned for Lookman, with Everton agreeing a deal worth up to £11m for his services in January 2017.

He immediately endeared himself to the Goodison Park faithful with a fine debut goal a matter of minutes after coming off the bench, as Manchester City were comprehensively beaten 4-0 by the Toffees.

Lookman had his first taste of European football the following season as Everton competed in the Europa League, and he then joined Leipzig on loan in the winter transfer window.

He continued his habit of notching on his debut, coming off the bench to hit a late winner against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

That was the first of five goals he scored in 11 Bundesliga outings – of which just seven were starts – prompting the German club to part with £22.5m to make the move permanent.

Lookman’s first England call-up came at Under-19 level, helping a Young Lions side that included Josh Onomah reach the Semi-Finals of the European Championship in 2016.

A year later the pair were in the Under-20 side that won the World Cup, with Lookman scoring three times in the tournament as they became the first England side to win a global competition since 1966.
