Lookman Can Flourish At Leicester City- Rodgers Insists
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers believes Ademola Lookman will make a big impact at the club, reports Completesports.com.
Lookman, 23, joined the Foxes on a season-long loan from Bundesliga club RB Leipzig on deadline day with a view to a permanent switch.
The talented winger, who found first-team opportunities with the German club limited, spent last season on loan at Fulham.
“I wanted to take him to Celtic when he was at Charlton. I was aware of him when he was 15,”Rodgers told a news conference on Thursday.
“He has all the tools, he has a great dribbling ability, how he views the game, he has an eye for a goal. My hope is that this environment will give him a chance to flourish. Hopefully he can find a home here. I have no doubt the supporters will be excited by him.

“He can play in a number of positions. His preferred position is off the left side but he can play on the inside as well and on the right.
“He’s very balanced. He’s got two good feet. You wouldn’t know which is his strongest foot, he can strike the ball very well off both sides.”
Leicester will host champions Manchester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Asked if Lookman will make his debut, Rodgers said: “I’m excited to work with Ade over the course of the season, he’s going to have an impact. He’s available. He looks fit and strong. If he doesn’t start, he may play some part in the game.
“His contribution will be dependent on the tactic we want to use in the game and we have a number of players who can give us that option.”
