Charlton are lining up a possible swoop for Blackpool striker Armand Gnanduillet if they lose the services of Lyle Taylor in the January transfer window, according to South London Press.
The Addicks attempted to land Gnanduillet over the summer before the deal fell through at the last minute, but they could be set to renew their interest in his services if Taylor moves on in the near future.
It is thought Brentford will make another attempt to land Taylor after missing out on him in the summer, and this would be a huge blow for Charlton given the frontman’s prolific goalscoring record.
However, it appears Lee Bowyer has a replacement already lined up in Gnanduillet, with the 27-year-old having already netted 12 goals for a Blackpool side who are sitting fifth in League One this term.
South London Press reporter Richard Cawley shared news of Charlton’s reported interest in the forward via his Twitter account…
#cafc saw a move for Blackpool's Armand Gnanduillet collapse late in the last transfer window. Interesting to see if they go back in for the Frenchman in January. https://t.co/ZGPDU1xvcA pic.twitter.com/b5MIpf1y9L
