Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is rumoured to be interested in making a move for English winger Ademola Lookman this January.
Lookman has been in scintillating form for Charlton so far this season, scoring six goals in 20 appearances. This follows an impressive breakthrough campaign in the 2015-16 season in which he showcased his undeniable talent.
The 19-year-old is now playing with a consistency that is unusual for someone so young, regularly causing trouble for League One defences.
His stellar performances have not gone unnoticed by English football’s giants, with a move to one of the big boys now seeming inevitable.
Liverpool are a team who scour the lower leagues for promising up-and-coming talent, and, having painfully missed out on Dele Alli The Reds will be desperate to seal the deal for Lookman.
Jurgen Klopp is building a team at Liverpool who look set to compete at the top for some time. Their high-intensity style demands players with large amounts of energy and enthusiasm, characteristics that Lookman matches.
However, Lookman has also attracted interest from a host of other teams. Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal are rumoured to have taken an interest, which could result in a tug-of-war transfer battle between the two sides.
With Lookman’s long-term future still yet to be decided, here are THREE reasons why he should choose Liverpool over Arsenal this January.
