Ademola Lookman believes Atalanta have enough quality to cope with his absence during the Africa Cup of Nations.

Lookman scored the winning goal for La Dea in their 1-0 home victory against Leece on Saturday.

The 26-year-old is now expected to link up with his international teammates as they begin preparations for AFCON 2023.

The Super Eagles will open camp for the competition in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on January 2, 2024.

The winger could miss around six games for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side should Nigeria make it to the final in Cote d’Ivoire.
Lookman claimed his Atalanta mates will do a good job in his absence.

‘We have a good team, with strong players.

“I will go to the African Cup but my teammates will do an excellent job, I have faith in them. Will I miss Bergamo? Yes, I can’t wait to come back here,” he was quoted by Tuttomercatoweb.
