Report: Southampton want Charlton Athletic striker Ademola Lookman

Southampton are reportedly interested in Charlton Athletic striker Ademola Lookman.

According to a report in the Sun, Charlton Athletic striker Ademola Lookman is interesting Southampton ahead of the January transfer window.

Lookman has had a remarkable debut season in the Championship, and the 18-year-old’s talents have not gone unnoticed.

Charlton will consider selling the striker for £2 million, and Southampton could be tempted to bring him to St. Mary’s in the new year.

The Saints are a club who have built a reputation for being one of the best teams in England at developing youngsters, and they have high hopes for Lookman’s future.

Lookman was actually playing in the Sunday League prior to this season, but he was spotted by the Addicks and has quickly risen up the ranks at the Valley.

Lookman has now played seven times for Charlton, and he has scored on three occasions.

Although the youngster would be unlikely to go straight into Southampton’s first team, Ronald Koeman’s side have seen enough to suggest that he could make an impact on the south coast in the future.
