However, their failure to break into the Three Lions main squad saw them seeking another option away from their country of birth - with Nigeria now a destination for them.

Lookman spent the 2020-21 season on loan at Premier League outfit Fulham from Bundesliga side Red Bull Leipzig - scoring four goals and four assists in 34 appearances at the Craven Cottage.
