​Leicester and Brighton step up pursuit of Millwall teenager Lovelace

Millwall forward Zak Lovelace is being linked to several Premier League clubs.

The young prospect, who made his debut for Millwall at the age of 15, is touted as a possible world-class talent.

According to Leicestershire Live, Lovelace is wanted by Leicester and Brighton in the top flight.

His teammate Mason Bennett, who made his debut at the same age as Lovelace, believes the latter has enough ability to go all the way in the game.

"We've had a couple of chats but I'm one that I'd rather them learn their own way," Bennett told News at Den.

"I had a similar upbringing. Yes, you're in the training ground, yes you've got to be nice to people, but you've got to learn your own way in how to cope with the environment and the demands of training.

"He's done well since he's come in training with us. He's still at school so I know what he's going through.

"He's got a bright future and he needs to keep working hard and take his opportunity when he gets it."
