Arsenal lead race for England under-19 star


Arsenal are thought to be leading Liverpool, Tottenham, and Southampton in the race for Charlton wonderkid Ademola Lookman, reports the Mirror.

The 18-year-old was hugely impressive for the England under-19s at the European Championships this summer and that has attracted fresh interest from the four Premier League clubs.

Charlton would demand at least £2million for the starlet, who signed his first long-term deal at the club earlier this year.

Their number seven has scored five goals in 25 appearances at senior level, but that form suggests his days at the Valley could be numbered as the Premier League’s big boys get ready to swoop.


He was also named Football League Championship Apprentice of the Year last season, which has only raised his profile further.

All of the four clubs interested have a reputation for developing young players, so Lookman has plenty to consider before making a move.

It’s likely he could be loaned back to Charlton were he to sign a deal with any of them.
