According to a report from The Mirror, Charlton Athletic striker Ademola Lookman is attracting interest from Arsenal, Liverpool, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur.

Lookman, 18, was playing non-league football with Waterloo FC back in 2014, but was snapped up by Charlton and joined the Addicks' academy, where names such as Joe Gomez, Carl Jenkinson and Jonjo Shelvey have cut their teeth.

Lookman's impressive showing for Charlton's Under-18's and Under-21's saw him fast-tracked to the first team at The Valley, and he scored five goals in 24 appearances last season as Charlton suffered relegation to League One.

A pacey, promising forward who can play as a striker or out wide, Lookman is one of Charlton's top young prospects right now - and he's now being targeted for a move to the Premier League.

The Mirror report that four Premier League clubs - Arsenal, Liverpool, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur - are all keen to land Lookman having been impressed with his potential at Charlton.

Moving to Arsenal or Spurs could be appealing giving their close proximity to Charlton, and the Wandsworth-born forward may well be keen on staying in the capital, with both clubs having a strong record for developing young players over the years.

Former Charlton youngster Gomez is currently developing at Liverpool, making an Anfield reunion potentially appealing, whilst Southampton's famed academy and progression of young players could be ideal for Lookman too.

It's claimed that Lookman could cost upwards of £2m having signed a new contract with Charlton earlier this year, which is small change to each of the interested Premier League clubs - and it now remains to be seen whether one of those clubs do make a move before this month's transfer deadline.
