Lookman should take a chance at Tottenham Hotspur rather than stay at Everton

Ademola Lookman should seriously consider signing for Tottenham Hotspur rather than fight for a place at Everton.

What’s the word?

The 20-year-old moved to Goodison Park from Charlton Athletic last year, but a change in managers has disrupted his progress.

The youngster moved to the Merseyside outfit when Ronald Koeman was in charge, but his game time was eventually limited and he was sent out on loan by new boss Sam Allardyce in January.

During a short spell at Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, Lookman scored five goals and created three assists in 11 league appearances.

It seems, though, that his future at Everton is under question following a report in The Mirror claiming that the youngster is at risk of being axed from the squad.

The club’s new director football Marcel Brands has insisted that he needs to balance the bonds, which could result in some fringe players leaving.

According to The Mirror’s transfer blog (June 5, 13:16), Tottenham have expressed an interest in signing Lookman.

Is Spurs the right place for him?

Mauricio Pochettino needs some established players to take Tottenham to the next level.

However, the Argentine coach has worked wonders with young talent and Lookman’s versatility would certainly fit into the club’s ethos.

The youngster can play anywhere across the attacking midfield areas, as well as up front, but he can cause the most damage from out wide.

Depending on how Marco Silva wants to proceed at Everton, it may be in Lookman’s best interests to join a club like Tottenham.

Pochettino, more than anyone, is likely to give the England Under-21 international a chance in the first team.

If Lookman finds himself in a situation where he can choose to stay at Everton or move to Tottenham, then the latter option should win out.
