Vieira Wants Lookman On Loan At Crystal Palace 

Vieira Wants Lookman On Loan At Crystal Palace 

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira want RB Leipzig Nigerian star forward Ademola Lookman on a season-long loan at Crystal Palace as he continues to strengthen his squad, according to The Sun.

Lookman, 23, is fancied by Burnley and Watford after spending last season at Fulham.

But Leipzig’s stunning £3.5million loan fee, plus wages of £50,000 a week, are too much for other admirers.

Vieira has been given funds to spend this summer following Roy Hodgson’s departure.

The 1998 World Cup winner has looked to upgrade his defence with the additions of Marc Guehi and Joachim Anderson – with the latter playing alongside Lookman at Fulham last term.

Palace have one Premier League loan left after their swoop for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher – as revealed by SunSport this week.
And the Eagles could look to raid Arsenal for winger Reiss Nelson.

Alongside Lookman, Nelson is at the top of the Eagles’ list for a new wide man and Gunners icon Vieira wants a loan deal.

Arsenal sent Nelson, 21, to Germans Hoffenheim in 2018-19 but he has been a fringe player since and they could lend him out to a Premier League rival.

  • I don’t understand the reason for the incessant delay of lookman and others switch of allegiance to Nigeria. Probably NFF is handling it with levity. A stitch in time saves nine

  • Obiweluozo 3 years ago

    Let’s be patient and pray the switch go on well for Ademola Lookman and for the Nigeria super Eagles. Also that Lookman goes to a very good team this summer because Nigeria needs players playing in top quality clubs. Will be happy to see Lookman in the Liberia & CAR qualifying games. God Bless Nigeria. God Bless Super Eagles. God Bless Ademola Lookman

  • I think fifa has already cleared Ademola Lookman to play for nigeria
