Fulham want permanent deal for Lookman

Fulham manager, Scott Parker is hopeful Ademola Lookman can make his loan signing from german Bundesliga side RB Leipzig a permanent agreement.

The former Charlton and Everton winger came off the bench and set up the equaliser in an impressive 20-minute cameo against Tottenham Hotspur in a Premier League game at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Wednesday night.

“The boy has got unbelievable quality. He is a special player,” Parker said.

“Around the box he is difficult to play against but the main focus for Ade is to get better because he still has loads of levels to go to and I have nothing but fond words to say about him.

“We will see what will happens at the end of the season.”

Lookman has scored twice and provided three assists in 13 Premier Leagues for the Cottagers so far this term. He has started 11 of the games and will be looking to make his first start and first win against Chelsea on Saturday when fellow West London side visit the Craven Cottage.

The Nigerian was subbed on in the final 26 minutes when Chelsea were held to a goalless draw by Everton at Goodison Park in November 2018.
