Arsenal set to win race for highly-rated striker

wengerrrrArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful of a big week on the transfer front, passing the time by playing a darts tournament as they await official wording from their club regarding new additions.

A new discussion sparked this afternoon amid reports of another potential arrival in North London, with The Sun stating Arsenal are confident of landing Ademola Lookman from Charlton Athletic.

Signing for a fee proposed to be of just £2m, the 18-year-old is highly-rated and has attracted the attention of both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur recently- but it appears Arsenal have left their London rivals empty-handed.

Lookman has enjoyed an explosive rise onto the first-team picture with Charlton this season, scoring three goals in nine senior appearances for the Latics.

Arsenal have long been linked with the signing of an exceptional forward but the performances of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott this season have lessened the demand, leaving the Gunners needing numbers up-top rather than a big-name.

Our landlord believes that Lookman will present a good back-up option for the Premier League leaders, whilst he backs the striker to become a star in the future.

Arsenal fans, does your side need a big-name striker in January? Let us know in the comments below!
