Charlton Athletic striker Ademola Lookman is set to snub Chelsea and Tottenham to stay at the Addicks, according to the Sevenoaks Chronicle.

Lookman, 18, is set to stay at Charlton following interest from a number of top clubs including Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

Lookman is said to prefer staying at the Valley, which is ultimately going to provide him with more first-team action, and is more likely to develop him as a footballer.

In what are worrying times at the south London club, Lookman has been introduced to the first team and has impressed in a side who have slumped dramatically down the table after an initial good start.

The Englishman plays as a striker and has managed to score three goals so far this season, and his directness and confidence on the ball is something that has caught the eye of some top-flight teams.

The teenager may have to carry more responsibility on his shoulders than he should for the second half of the season, as Charlton look to stop the rot and survive in the Championship.

Jose Riga’s Charlton currently sit four points adrift of safety, with 19 games to play.

With an impressive start to his professional career at a high level, several clubs are sure to monitor his development for the rest of the season when he returns from his current injury.

Charlton fans, how good has Lookman been since he came into the team? Is he now regarded as a key player? Let us know in the comments below!
