Speaking on the Premier League’s YouTube channel, Alan Shearer has heaped praise upon Ademola Lookman.
The Newcastle United legend was highlighting some of the impressive young players in the division, and Lookman was one player he wanted to speak about.
“We’re looking at Ademola Lookman, he’s 23 and having a great season with Fulham. What I love is his versatility from the wing, he’s as happy scoring goals as he is setting them up, and his contributions have been vital to Fulham’s campaign so far,” Shearer said.
“Look at his brilliant goal against Sheffield United, the young man has plenty of tricks in his locker and a fierce strike to boot, and he showcases all of that in this moment.
Shearer will certainly be hoping Lookman slows down between now and the end of the season as Fulham look to reel Newcastle in.
Regardless of whether or not Fulham manage to stay up this term, Lookman has been a splendid addition to the side, and even if he returns to RB Leipzig this summer, he’s bound to be remembered fondly for his exploits this term.
As Shearer says, he’s versatile and he has plenty of tricks in his locker, and that’s why he’s been so vital for the Whites this term.
Fingers crossed he can get a few more of the goals and assists Shearer has been praising him for between now and the end of the campaign.
