Sheffield Wednesday, Preston, Charlton eyeing up loan moves for striker



Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End and Charlton Athletic are interested in taking Lyon forward Reo Griffiths on loan next season, according to the Mirror.

Wednesday and North End will be preparing for another season in the Sky Bet Championship, whilst Charlton will be eyeing up an immediate return to the second tier following their relegation to League One.

According to the Mirror, Griffiths is a player on each of those sides’ radar, as he looks to gain experience out on loan.

The ultimate Sheffield Wednesday end of season quiz – Can you get 14/14?

1 of 14

What position did Sheffield Wednesday finish in the 2019/20 season?

The 20-year-old came through the ranks at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 41 goals in 44 games for Spurs’ Under-18 side, as well as chipping in with 12 assists.

Griffiths moved to Lyon in 2018, though, and he has since scored two goals in four games for their Under-19 side, however is yet to break into the first-team.

Lyon are keen to see how Griffiths gets on out on loan, with a potential move back to England on the cards for the young forward.

The Verdict

I think that each of these sides need to add more attacking impetus to their squads this summer, and Griffiths looks to be an exciting, talented, up and coming player for sure.

He scored so many goals for Spurs’ youth team, and there is no reason to suggest why he can’t thrive in the Championship.

Wednesday need more firepower after losing Fernando Forestieri and Steven Fletcher, whilst Preston need to find a prolific goalscorer up top.

It would be a coup for Charlton to get him given the calibre of clubs also interested, but they need a Lyle Taylor replacement a move back to London could be appealing for Griffths.
