Little known Nigerian star Ademola Lookman is on the verge on signing for Arsenal from Charlton, According to The Express.

The report reveals that the Gunners have already agreed a £2m fee with London neighbours Charlton for the former Waterloo FC trainee.

Only last month, Charlton’s interim coach Karel Fraeye insisted that the wonderkid won’t be leaving The Valley, but money appears to have won the day and Ademola seem to be on the brink of a high-profile exit.

However, Arsenal are not the only ones interested in the services of the 18-year-old as Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also monitoring the progress of the forward but it looks a little too late as the Emirates is set to become the new home of the player.

Ademola has scored three goals in nine since appearances for Charlton.
