Atalanta and Nigeria star Ademola Lookman has been awarded the Best African International Footballer at the prestigious Ghana Football Awards in Accra, MySportDab Reports

The recognition comes after a stellar season for both his Italian club and the Nigerian national team.

Lookman’s triumph was announced following his extraordinary performances that significantly contributed to Atalanta’s success.

He played a pivotal role in their UEFA Europa League campaign, notably scoring a hat-trick in the final against Bayer Leverkusen, which helped secure the title for his team.

This feat capped a season where Lookman amassed 17 goals and 10 assists across all competitions, guiding Atalanta to a commendable fourth-place finish in Serie A.

The award places Lookman in elite company, succeeding last year’s winner, Napoli forward Victor Osimhen, who was instrumental in leading Napoli to the Serie A title and was subsequently named CAF Africa’s Best Player.

Lookman’s consistent high-level performances have also made him a strong contender for Africa’s top individual football accolade this year.

In his acceptance speech delivered via video, Lookman expressed his heartfelt thanks: “Thank you for the consideration, the recognition, and the votes. This means a lot to me and my family. I wish I was in Ghana, but my heart is with you all. Thank you and God bless.”


The 26-year-old’s influence extended beyond club football. He was crucial in Nigeria’s journey to the Africa Cup of Nations final, further solidifying his status as one of Africa’s premier talents.

His standout performances have not gone unnoticed, attracting interest from top European clubs and lucrative offers from Saudi Arabian teams.

Having previously played for Fulham and Leicester City, Lookman’s career has soared to new heights at Atalanta. His ability to perform consistently at the highest level has earned him admiration and respect across the footballing world.

As he continues to impress on the field, Lookman’s future looks bright, with fans eagerly anticipating more extraordinary feats from the Nigerian forward.
