Serie A giants Juventus and OGC Nice in France have both joined the race to sign Nigerian winger, Ademola Lookman.

Lookman who was included in Whoscored.com Serie A Team of the Week following his match-winning performance in Atalanta’s 1-0 win against Lecce last Saturday joined Atalanta from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2022.

According to Daily Mail, the 26-year-old whose contract with Atalanta runs until the summer of 2026, is seen as an ideal partner for their Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic by the Bianconeri.

“Juventus is monitoring Lookman and may sign him this summer,” the report stated.

Meanwhile, Lookman, who has scored twice in eight appearances for Nigeria is listed as one of the eight forwards in the Nigerian squad for the African Cup of Nations billed to hold from January 13 to February 11 in Ivory Coast.

He is expected to arrive the Eagles camp in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates where they are expected to play Burkina Faso and Cape Verde in pre-tournament friendlies ahead of the tournament.

This will be his first appearance at a senior men’s tournament after featuring for England at U-20 level.

The Eagles, in their quest for a fourth continental title, will take on Equatorial Guinea on January 14 in their first match of Group A, before further clashes with host nation Ivory Coast four days later.

Their final group A game is against Guinea Bissau January 22.

Nigeria, who will be participating in the Africa Cup of Nations for the 20th time, were champions as hosts in 1980, triumphant in Tunisia in 1994 and crowned winners in South Africa in 2013.
