Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad has made a substantial offer to Atalanta for forward Ademola Lookman, proposing an annual salary close to €11 million for the player, as reported by PUNCH Sports Extra.

Transfer expert Rudy Galetti revealed that Al-Ittihad has also tabled a €30 million bid for Lookman’s transfer, with negotiations ongoing between the clubs.

Lookman recently shone in the UEFA Europa League final, scoring a hat-trick against Bayer Leverkusen and helping his team secure their first European trophy. Despite his impressive performance, Lookman is not in a hurry to leave Atalanta or European football, but the significant financial incentives from Al-Ittihad are tempting.
