When Ademola Lookman arrived at the Goodison Park, the youngster took the next step in his career but ever since, he has failed to gain the desired flight in his career and there has been stagnancy in his career.
He was one of the priciest youngsters when he completed his £11m move from Charlton Athletic. The start was fascinating as he scored on his debut against Manchester City. The story could have been different but he somehow shrunk to a splash of uncertainty and has fallen down in the pecking order at the Merseyside.
According to reports, Huddersfield Town are courting a move for the England U-21 international. He was an important part of the Three Lions squad who lifted the U-20 World Cup title. Everton have a number of attacking players up front and it would need some breathtaking performance from the youngster to cement a place in the starting lineup.
The Terriers made a strong start to their Premier League season but they have somehow failed to maintain that flow and goals are not coming at the moment. In the last five matches, they have found the net only once which have forced Steve Wagner to rethink for alternate requirements.
The 19-year-old hasn’t made an appearance in the Premier League and doesn’t seem to be in the good books for the gaffer. The talented winger, who mainly operates from the left flank, can be also stationed anywhere across the front three positions.
Last season he featured in a mere eight games for the Toffees and would have been expecting a more busiest 2017/18 season but to the contrary, he has been largely neglected which must have been noticed by the Terriers boss.
Lookman dazzled in the League One while playing for Charlton but failed to transfer that form while donning the Toffees jersey. He was the most expensive teenager to have directly joined a Premier League side from League One ever.
His move has been likened to that of Dele Alli’s who has been a revelation since joining Tottenham Hotspur from MK Dons. But in terms of Premier League experience, Lookamn is still learning and it would be a gamble to let him leave as he has all the skills and trickery to become a great player and a manager like Ronald Koeman can definitely mould him to a more developed and complete player.
But is a move to the Kirklees the right one for the youngster?
