Charlton Athletic

Oxford United, Rotherham and Lincoln in three-way transfer chase for 23-year-old

Three League One clubs are on the hunt for Charlton’s out of favour winger Tariq Fosu, as reported by the South London Press.

The former Reading man has fallen down the pecking order at the Valley and made just 27 appearances last season, many of which came from the bench.

That’s in sharp contrast to an impressive 2017/18 season in which he became a regular under former boss Karl Robinson, scoring nine times in 35 outings. His former mentor is now hoping to take him to the Kassam Stadium to help fight a promotion campaign with the Us.

He faces stiff competition in the form of recently-relegated Rotherham United. They swapped divisions for the fifth time in seven seasons and will be hoping to do the same again by regaining their Championship status as they did two years ago.

Ambitious Lincoln City are also in the hunt. Manager Danny Cowley has yet to make a summer signing, but he’s thought to be completing a trio of clubs hunting the winger.

The youngster would command a fee thanks to clever management by Charlton. He’s out of contract, but they’ve offered him a new deal meaning they’d be entitled to compensation, even if he chose not to put pen to paper.

The Verdict

He is ripe for any of these clubs to take. He’s got lots of League One experience, can score goals and is young enough to develop into a better player.

Oxford is the obvious choice, linking up with former boss Karl Robinson. However, Danny Cowley is a renowned man-manager and could entice him to be part of the Lincoln project.

If he’s chasing Championship football, Rotherham looks the best bet. It is set to be a big decision for the youngster to make.
