Liverpool set for £6 million attacker buy

Liverpool are ready to swoop on Charlton youngster Ademola Lookman this summer, with The Mirror stating the Reds will tie up a £6 million switch for the teenager.

The 18-year-old has impressed since breaking into the first team at The Valley but looks destined to leave the club after they were relegated to League One.

Liverpool have links with Charlton and have bought both Jonjo Shelvey and Joe Gomez from the London club in recent years, with the latter tipped to be a star on Merseyside.

Lookman is versatile enough to play anywhere across the forward line and has scored five goals in 16 starts for his club this season in his breakthrough campaign.

The report suggests that Jurgen Klopp’s men are set to win the race for his signature, but a host of other Premier League League clubs are also monitoring the situation and would like to add the youngster to their ranks also.
