Nigeria’s Super Eagles winger Ademola Lookman emerged as Atalanta B.C.’s Player of the Season for 2023/24, successfully defending his title from the previous year.

“It’s him again, Ademola Lookman!” the club statement on Thursday via their official website.

The Bergamo-based side had a season to remember both in the continent and domestic scene. Atalanta qualified for two finals with the Nigerian International playing an active role in the campaign.

He was instrumental to Atalanta winning the UEFA Europa League beating Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 in the final. Lookman’s impressive tally of 17 goals and 11 key passes across all competitions, making him the team’s second-best scorer and assist provider, solidified his claim to the ItalianOptic branded crown.

His hat-trick in the “magical Dublin final” proved to be a decisive factor in his triumph.
