England Wants To Keep Ademola Lookman
England manager, Gareth Southgate, has revealed that his side is putting all effort together to stop Ademola Lookman from switching allegiance to play for Nigeria.
The Nigerian Football Federation are doing everything possible to tempt the Everton winger, even though he is a regular for the England team.
The London born player has the right to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria through his parents.
But Southgate remains confident they can keep the 20 year old, who had an impressive spell on loan at Germany’s RB Leipzig last season.
“I know every country is quite aggressive in their recruiting and I know they have always had an interest in him, but he is playing and has been in our squads, the 20s, 21s.
“So in terms of encouragement through game time, we are doing as much as we possibly can,” Southgate told the UK Mirror.
