Liverpool have joined the hunt for £6million-rated Charlton wonderkid Ademola Lookman.

The Anfield club have become the latest to express an interest in the 18 year-old who is set to leave the Valley this summer following Charlton’s relegation to League One.

Forward Lookman has burst onto the scene this season, scoring five times in 16 starts and was named Football League apprentice of the year last month.

Chelsea and Tottenham wanted to land Lookman in January but were unable to strike a deal while Arsenal and Everton were also keen.

Lookman ended up signing a new deal that runs until 2020.

But Charlton now accept they have little choice but to cash in this summer after suffering the drop to League One.

And Liverpool have entered the fray and are ready to raid Charlton for another one of their bright young prospects.

Liverpool signed defender Joe Gomez last summer from the Addicks for £3.5m.
