Everton Forward, Ademola Lookman, Returns To Nigeria

Jayfred Ugo

Everton star, Ademola Lookman, has arrived the city of Lagos to start his summer vacation.

Ademola Lookman is a 21-year-old who plies his trade with the blue side of Merseyside, Everton. He joined German side, RB Leipzig, on loan in the just concluded 2018/2019 season, where he made 11 league appearances and scored five goals.

He was born to Nigerian parents in the district of Wandsworth, England. He grew there and eventually joined boyhood club, Charlton Athletic's Academy, before moving to Goodison Park in 2017.

He has represented England across all youth levels including the U19, U20 and U21 age groups but he is eligible to play for Nigeria at senior level because he has not represented the England National team yet.

Lookman is among the notable absentees dropped for the European U21 Championship scheduled to commence on June 16 in Italy and San Marino.

The coach of the the Young lions, Aidy Boothroyd, dropped the Toffees forward. Now he is in Lagos, the birth home of his parents, enjoying his vacation.
