Arsenal have allegedly been scouting Charlton’s ‘wonder kid,’ Ademola Lookman (amazing name), along with almost everybody else in the Premier League.

Well, Liverpool, Tottenham, and Chelsea at least. Jose Mourinho probably doesn’t even know he exists because he costs less than 500 gazillion pounds.

With a price tag rumoured to be in the region of £2m, the England u19 international could well be worth a punt for many clubs and with Arsenal losing Yaya Sanogo again (anyone know where he is?) there is certainly room for a youngster.

Of course, we’ve already snapped up Takuma Asano and he isn’t doing too badly in Rio.

Just 18, he can play as a striker or on the left wing and is under contract with the Addicks until 2020.

Making the step up to the senior Charlton side in 2015, Lookman scored five and assisted one in 24 Championship appearances. He averaged just over 60 minutes per game.
