Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has hailed the current form of Atalanta winger Ademola Lookman.

The former Leicester City attacker is on-loan at La Dea this season from RB Leipzig.

Peseiro told TMW: “Lookman previously played in England Under 21.

“I think he did well in England and Germany but I think now, at Atalanta, he has reached his best level. He will have to do it again but he is doing great things: he scores, he has quality, he’s talented, he plays with his team-mates.

“He needs to improve but it also applies to Lookman: he’s young and will grow again. Atalanta has placed him in the ideal environment.”
