Leicester manager Rodgers: Lookman has everything

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says Ademola Lookman has ‘everything’ and admits the club could push to sign him permanently.

The English winger joined from RB Leipzig last summer and has scored five goals in 19 appearances.

“He’s a player I’ve loved working with and he’s improving and developing all of the time,” Rodgers said ahead of Saturday’s trip to Burnley. “I can see the improvement in his personality.

“He has everything, he’s quick, he’s two-footed, he presses the game well, he’s a great dribbler, he’s scoring, he’s creating goals.

“He’s shown he can play anywhere across the frontline, he’s played off the right side, he’s played off the left, he played in a central role.

“He’s just a fantastic football player who still has so much development to make. I’ve been delighted with his contribution. And moving into the second half of the season, that (a permanent deal) will be something we will sit down and look at.”
