Galatasaray are among a host of clubs who have joined the race to sign Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
The 30-year-old has been a key player for Charlton over the past two years since arriving from AFC Wimbledon last summer, scoring 25 goals as the Addicks won promotion from League One last term.
Taylor has encountered a couple of injury problems this season, but has still managed to fire in 11 goals to help keep Charlton’s hopes of Championship survival alive.

The forward faces an uncertain future at the Valley, though, and is likely to leave this summer, with his contract set to expire at the end of this month.
Furthermore, manager Lee Bowyer revealed yesterday afternoon that Taylor, along with Chris Solly and David Davis, are refusing to play in the remaining nine games of the season due to risk of injury.
Now, the Daily Mail claim that a number of clubs have joined the race to sign Taylor, including Galatasaray, Sheffield Wednesday, Rangers and Swansea City.
Sheffield Wednesday were recently linked with Taylor’s signature back in January, as the Owls look to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season.
Charlton sit 22nd in the Championship table, two points adrift of safety with nine games left to play this term.
More and more clubs are going to declare an interest in signing Taylor between now and the end of the season.
His future at Charlton is looking uncertain and the fact he doesn’t want to play again suggests his head isn’t in the right place at all.
He is a prolific goalscorer and 11 goals in 22 games is a fabulous record, so he would be a fantastic asset for any side.
