Everton winger, Ademola Lookman, has made it clear that he wants to play for Nigeria, despite the efforts of England manager, Gareth Southgate, to convince him.
Southgate who coached the forward at U-21 level for England, has tried to persuade Lookman from switching his allegiance to the West African nation.

However, the player has made his mind up, with his father particularly keen on seeing his son play for the Super Eagles.
Already, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has initiated moves to have FIFA transfer his nationality.

“No going back. The process of his nationality switch is on. Southgate has a very good relationship with Lookman but not on this issue because the father of Lookman is keen on his son playing for Nigeria at senior level and no England,” a source told OwnGoalNigeria.com.
