Transfer: West Ham United consider summer move for Lookman

West Ham United are targeting a move for Atalanta star, Ademola Lookman.

The Hammers confirmed the appointment of Julen Lopetegui as their new manager this week.

Lopetegui is keen to add seven new players to his team.

The Spaniard wants to recruit two central defenders, a right-back, midfielder, right-footed left winger, striker and a new third-choice goalkeeper.

Atalanta’s Europa League final hero, Lookman, according to The Mirror, is under consideration for the left wing position.

The Nigeria international earned rave reviews after netting a historic hat-trick against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.

West Ham could, however, face competition for the winger, who is also admired by Barcelona.
