According to reports from England, Premier League champions Chelsea are targeting Nigerian wonderkid, Ademola Lookman.

The Daily Star insists that heavyweight trio Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester City were all keen to compete with the Blues for the 18-year-old Charlton Athletic striker. However, according to The Sun, Chelsea are closer than everyone to winning his signature.

Reports also say that Southampton are keen on the player and may try to snatch him from the Blues. The youngster has made a handful of appearances for the Championship outfit, and has already hit more than 15 goals for the Valiants’ U18 and U21 sides.
