Ademola Lookman has stated emphatically that her parents had nothing to do with her decision to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria and not the England national team.
The Atalanta striker represented England at Under 19, 20 and 21 levels before switching sides and starting to play for the three-time African champions.
According to the report on naija soccer playerLookman explained that choosing the Super Eagles over England was a big decision that he thought about a lot before making a decision.
He started playing for the Super Eagles in 2022 and has made six appearances for Nigeria so far scoring one goal.
Meanwhile, Lookman is expected to resume with the Super Eagles when the AFCON qualifiers begin later this year.
Previously, Sports Brief had reported how former Kwara united coach Abdullah Biffo urged those in charge of Premier league Chelsea, to do everything possible to sign Nigerian striker Ademola Lookman.
Lookman is currently the man of the hour in Serie A as the Nigerian continues to fire goals at full steam for Atalanta, having recently registered his 12th goal of the period.
Chelsea, on the other hand, have not had a rosy campaign this season in the top flight and fans fear they will not finish in the top four at the end of the season.
The Blues are currently 10th in the Premier League table and must improve their games if they want to play in the Champions League next season.
Sports Brief spoke to Biffo, who is currently in the US, and the experienced manager said Lookman can help the Blues up front if they can sign him.
