"I'm my own individual; I write my own story."

Gotta love this lad. It's a big step-up but I just love his ball skills and he knows how to hit the ball toward the goal.

Give him a go next season, Ronald!

Cheers Michael. I think he could become a big player for us. In the game time I have seen he looks skilled and comfortable on the ball.

Lovely story. Lovely interview. A modest lad, still awe-struck.

I liked his "I couldn't wait till the next day to train" and loving every day training.

A well-read lad, too, judging by his library behind him! Best of luck in your GCSEs this year, Ade!

Nice interview. Still a shy humble lad, evidently not altogether comfortable doing media stuff, but clearly focused on what he wants to achieve and how dedicated he needs to be to get there.

For the first games in the U-20 WC he wasn't in the starting XI. He impressed from the bench, forced his way into the starting XI scored a double to ensure England beat Costa Rica to reach the quarters, then again in the semi against Italy to give England the lead.

He clearly has a lot going for him. I recall a shooting training session Everton TV showed of Lookman and Lukaku whacking the ball in from all angles and distances. Really impressive, the pair of them.

There will be bumps in the road. There always is with young players, but this is another good young 'un we have on our books.

Agree with the comments above; hopefully we'll see a lot more of this kid next season.

He comes across as a great, well grounded, lad. He obviously loves being at Everton. He'll go from strength to strength, he's got so much ability. Let's hope he gets more game time next season.

Let's hope he writes the Ademola Lookman story in the Everton history books. What a nice Lad!

I know it's fashionable to bash Lukaku but it seemed as if he took Lookman under his wing right away, which was a nice touch.

As usual, Ademola comes across as a remarkably pleasant young man. Coming from his background in non-league football, it warms the heart to hear him so appreciative of the opportunity.

That being said, he is showing now that he is anything but awestruck. He was undoubtedly the most talented player at the U20 World Cup. Most pleasing was the quality of his end product, like Deulofeu with intelligence.

Peter (#9) – "like Deulofeu with intelligence".

Quote of the day (with one hour left – unless you're in the US of A).

Can't wait to see both Colemans on the pitch.
