Speaking to LCFC TV, the 23-year-old said: “I’m delighted to be here. It’s a great honour to be at such a big and amazing club with such a huge history and a quality group of players.

“The facilities are incredible. It’s pretty mind-blowing and I just can’t wait to get to work here. I think environment is very important for a player, so this is the right environment for me to work hard every single day and to help my craft be even better.”

Born in Wandsworth, in south-west London, Lookman signed for Charlton Athletic’s academy in 2014 and made a rapid ascent through the ranks to make his debut for the first team in November 2015.

Over two seasons, he went on to feature 49 times in all competitions for the Addicks, scoring 12 goals, before signing for Everton on a four-and-a-half-year-deal in January 2017.

He scored on his debut for the Toffees in a 4-0 win against Manchester City and made 48 appearances for them in total, finding the net four times.

Lookman enjoyed a brief loan spell with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in 2017/18 and decided to make the move permanent in July 2019, signing a five-year-deal.

During his first season with the German outfit, he played 13 times, before joining then-Premier League side Fulham on loan for the 2020/21 campaign.

He made 35 appearances for the Cottagers in all competitions, scoring four goals, with his first coming against Sheffield United in October.

The England Under-21 international will now link up with his Leicester City team-mates as they prepare to welcome Manchester City to King Power Stadium after the international break.
