Charlton Athletic fans will be hoping that the club can cling onto their most important players this summer, despite relegation to League One looking likely.
The Addicks have endured a tough first season back in the Championship, and currently sit two points adrift of safety ahead of the final nine games of the season whenever they may be played.
Lee Bowyer has recently suggested that the club could lose the likes of Lyle Taylor – the Addicks’ leading goalscorer – if they fail to avoid the drop.
Have these 15 Charlton players been capped at senior international level?
Whilst Taylor has been a revelation since joining from AFC Wimbledon last season, players like Naby Sarr are just as important in different ways.
The powerful defender has been one of Charlton’s best players over the past couple of seasons, making 25 appearances under Bowyer in the Championship and standing out in defence.
But with his contract running out at the end of the season, it remains to be seen whether Charlton can tie the Frenchman down to a new deal if they get relegated.
Charlton fans have been discussing this on Twitter, and here’s what they had to say…
Yes. We can’t afford him any longer. Would imagine he’ll go back to France.

I think most players will leave and the only players that would want to stay are players that know there shit and won't get an offer from any clubs better than us…..hemed springs to mind

I’d expect so it’s been said several times he’s one of our biggest earners and we’re broke!
