One young player who has been gaining attention recently is Ademola Lookman. Since making his senior debut last November for Charlton, the England Under-20 International has been putting in some great performances and now it seems West Ham have taken notice.

The Hammers are rumoured to be looking into potentially signing the 19 year old, predictable pun intended. Lookman is happy at Charlton so if West Ham were to finalise the signing, he would be loaned back to the South London club for the remainder of the season. This, it is hoped, would help convince The Addicks to agree to a deal.

Interest in Lookman is high with Arsenal, Everton, Tottenham and Bundesliga leaders Red Bull Leipzig all said to be chasing the forward. In recent days it has been reported that Everton had a bid of £7m rejected and that Charlton had valued the player at £10m during the summer.
