Charlton Athletic forward Macauley Bonne has this week been linked with a move to the Premier League.
The 24-year-old joined Charlton in the summer from National League winners Leyton Orient. He scored 45 league goals in his last two seasons there and was expecting to be more of a back-up striker under Lee Bowyer this season.
But after Lyle Taylor became injured earlier in the season, Bonne was thrown straight into the starting line-up and in 14 Championship appearances this season, Bonne has scored six times.
He’s popped up with some important ones for Bowyer and now it’s attracted some Premier League interest, with Newcastle United and Leicester City said to be interest.

Fulham are also rumoured to be interested in the Charlton forward with Aleksandar Mitrovic looking likely for a January exit.
Charlton fans have reacted to the news but not all think it’s a good move for Bonne. Here we take a look at the best tweets from Charlton fans:

Wouldn’t mind if he goes for a couple of million to be honest and he is definitely not prem quality
