Manchester City are interested in the signature of Anglo – Nigerian starlet Ademola Lookman ahead of the start of the winter transfer market, according to various reports in the British press.
But the Citizens face competition from Londoners Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur to land his signature, while Championship outfit Brighton & Hove Albion are also credited with an interest, theDaily Mirrorhas reported.
The 18 – year – old joined Charlton Athletic in 2014 before breaking into the first team in November, thanks to his form for the Under 18s and Under 21 teams.
Man City, Chelsea and Spurs posted scouts to monitor Ademola Lookman at close quarters when The Addicks took on Brighton on Saturday and he did not disappoint, scoring his first professional goal in the second minute of the encounter.
The teenager was on the books of Waterloo FC before he was snapped up by Charlton.
