Three reasons West Ham must make shock loan move for Everton winger Lookman
According to reports in the Liverpool Echo, Everton manager Sam Allardyce is weighing up whether to send out of favour winger Ademola Lookman out on loan before the January transfer window slams shut on Wednesday.
The Liverpool Echo says that while the Merseyside outfit are currently reluctant to sanction his exit, they have yet to make a decision on the 20-year-old’s short-term future and the situation could change in the coming days.
The England U21 international has only made five starts for the Toffees this season despite enjoying a breakthrough spell earlier in the 2017 following his move from Charlton Athletic this time last year, and he will be frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities.
The attacker didn’t even make the substitutes’ bench for the 1-1 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion last weekend, which suggests he needs to move on – at least on a temporary basis until the end of the season – if his parent club will allow it.
Meanwhile, West Ham United have completed their first signing this month following the arrival of Joao Mario on loan from Inter Milan, but Irons boss David Moyes won’t be finished there as he looks to ensure his side stay away from the Premier League relegation zone.
Strengthening his attack could be a priority in the next few days, and bringing Lookman to the London Stadium could prove to be a shrewd move.
