We won’t rush for Ademola Lookman -NFF

The Nigeria Football Federation vice president Seyi Akinwunmi has ruled out any immediate approach or plans to meet with Everton wonder-kid Ademola Lookman.

Akinwunmi said, “We don’t have a chance, so we won’t go on a wild goose chase. Lookman is on the rise and after coming through the youth system in England, he will most likely want to break into the main team.”

He was born in England to Nigerian parents, making him eligible to represent Nigeria even though he has represented England at various youth levels.

Nigeria have been scouting players with dual nationality for possible call up to the national team as they aim to retain top spot in their World Cup 2018 qualifiers group.
