Everton are closing in on the signature of highly rated Charlton Athletic winger Ademola Lookman, according to The Daily Mail.

Ronald Koeman’s men are expected to be one of the busiest Premier League sides in the transfer window this January and have been linked with a host of new recruits.

However, Lookman has emerged as a potential addition, with the 18-year-old attacker impressing this season in League One.

The teenager has reportedly got no shortage of suitors but if the latest news is to be believed, Everton are close to securing a £10 million deal to bring him to Merseyside.

The report suggests that the only obstacle to Koeman’s men landing the blistering forward is a clause over whether Lookman will join the Premier League club immediately or spend the rest of the current campaign back at Valley Parade on loan.

Everton are also believed to be in advanced negotiations over the signatures of Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin from Manchester United.
