Lookman

The success story of Leicester City, Jamie Vardy in particular, has seen our punters who swear allegiance to perhaps the less celebrated clubs in the land wax poetic as to who may emulate the England international.

We’ve never heard of most them to be fair, though even the Charlton fans who’ve had so little to smile about this season seem to be excited about this individual.

As well as a host of Premier League clubs, it seems.

Tottenham are ready to rival Premier League rivals Liverpool in the battle to land promising young Charlton forward Ademola Lookman, report the Daily Star.

Amidst a dreadful season for the Addicks, the 18-year old has been one of the few bright sparks to emerge as the tumbled into the third tier of English football.

With the Reds having signed Joe Gomez from the Valley in the summer, who impressed before a season ending injury, they were thought to retain an interest in the 18-year old.

However, Spurs have recently championed the trend of lower league scouting that has become so prevalent in the Premier League.

Dele Alli arrived in North London this summer to little fanfare, though has gone on to become one of the best players in England and a regular for the national side.

Now, they are reportedly ready to return to League One and offer £8m for Lookman, who has notched 5 goals this season.
