Crystal Palace have made a £4 million offer for Charlton Athletic prodigy Ademola Lookman, according to The Daily Mail.
The Selhurst Park outfit have been progressive in the transfer window so far this summer, with the likes of Christian Benteke, James Tomkins, Andros Townsend and Loic Remy all joining the London club.
Lookman is regarded as one of the shining lights of the next generation of English football and comes from the fabled Charlton academy, which has produced some stellar talent over recent years.

The 18-year-old has starred at Valley Parade since breaking into first-team contention last year and has been linked with a move to countless Premier League teams as a result.
An England under-19 international, the attacking midfielder’s pace and trickery has caught the eye of visiting scouts.
Palace’s game is pace around pace in wide areas and as such Lookman could well be moulded to fit the Eagles’ system by Alan Pardew.
