Everton starlet Ademola Lookman impressed after coming off of the substitutes’ bench in his side’s 2-1 defeat against Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup at Anfield on Friday, and Tottenham Hotspur fans have urged their club to sign the winger.
The 20-year-old was introduced in place of Wayne Rooney in the 52nd minute with his team trailing 1-0 to James Milner’s first-half penalty for the Reds, and he played a key role in their equaliser 15 minutes later.
The former Charlton youngster used his pace to burst clear on the counter-attack and the ball eventually fell to Gylfi Sigurdsson who finished well from the edge of the area.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on his display via social media, and while one said “I want Spurs to get him”, another advised the north London outfit to “bid £20m for Lookman”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
