Juventus, Atletico Madrid chase Super Eagles star (Watch him in action for Nigeria at AFCON)

Super Eagles of Nigeria’s star Ademola Lookman is being targeted by Juventus and Atletico Madrid, according to The Sun.

He is currently away at the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria – where he has been one of the tournament’s standout players.

The forward scored both goals in Nigeria’s 2-0 round of 16 victory over Cameroon to fire them into the quarter-finals.

Lookman failed to pull up trees during his time in the Premier League which also included a loan spell at Fulham.

He had more success in his first season while at RB Leipzig but went on to struggle in the Bundesliga before being sold to Atalanta.

He’s gone on to play the best football of his career in Serie A, racking up 13 goals and eight assists last season and has also experienced a strong start to this campaign.

Lookman has scored seven goals and assisted three this season and is thought of as one of the most talented players in Italy.

AFCON star rejects Premier League move

Sebastien Haller has rejected a return to the Premier League after Fulham enquired about the Borussia Dortmund striker.

According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, the Londoners were given the green light by the Bundesliga giants to speak to the Ivorian last night.

However, the 29-year-old is currently focused on Afcon with his country facing a quarter-final tie against Mali on Saturday, and has no desire to to discuss a deadline day move.

Haller – once West Ham’s record signing – has yet to find the net in the Bundesliga this season following his recovery from testicular cancer.

Chelsea soften on high demands for Armando Broja over loan move

Chelsea have softened their stance over their £50m valuation for Armando Broja as Fulham are reportedly expected to try again.

The west London side slapped a punchy price tag on their academy graduate at the start of the window, forcing a number of clubs who might have made a play for the striker to look elsewhere.

But SIMON JONES reports that the Premier League side could be wavering over their hard line just hours before the deadline closes.

Fulham and Wolves have been interested in signing the Albania international but scoffed at The Blues’ massive asking price.

Broja has scored only one Premier League goal this season. He did not make his comeback from a serious knee injury until September.

But Chelsea owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, who have blown £1 billion on new players since they took over the club, were holding out for the massive fee until last night.

They then dropped the price to £40m and are now even prepared to let their former academy player leave on loan until the end of the season.

The deal could include an obligation to buy Broja at the end of the campaign.
