Koeman impressed by new boy Lookman

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has expressed how impressed he is by the hunger and desire of new signing Ademola Lookman and says that the 19 year old knows exactly what he has to do if he wants to succeed at Everton.

The forward moved from Charlton on a deal that could eventually rise to £10m and Koeman says that the youngster is determined to improve in any way he can.

“Mentally, he likes to improve and watch clips of his performances,” the Blues boss told evertontv. “I think they are all good signals from a young player who knows he is just starting. We will support and will help him improve. That’s really important.

“He wants to train and he wants to play.”

“Ademola has good experience and everybody knows that at that level the football is more physical than the Premier League. Now he will get more experience at a higher level, which will be good for the boy.

“I spoke to the boy and he knows what we want, how he needs to train and play and his behaviour. He’s only 19 and we know it’s difficult for young players to come into the first team at the level of the Premier League, but he’s the type who we believe can make the step as soon as possible.”

Will Lookman prove a useful player for Everton?
