Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have long been crying out for a world-class centre-forward, though they’re not too sure about this potential recruit.
Metro report that Arsenal are preparing a move for Charlton Athletic forward Ademola Lookman after a successful scouting mission on the player, who only rose into the Addicks picture this season.
Lookman joined the South London club last year from Waterloo FC and made his first-team debut with Charlton last month, after impressive performances for both the U18 and U21 side.
Charlton desperately want to keep hold of their new star but might find that difficult as interest rises, although Arsenal wouldn’t be likely to give him a first-team chance immediately.
Our fans in the bar don’t believe Lookman is the striker Arsenal necessarily need right now but trust their side’s judgment and believe a swoop should be made, with the best scenario being loaning the youngster back to the Championship club.
Arsenal fans, would you be happy with this signing for the future? Let us know in the comments below!
