Leeds fans consider Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor after latest reports


Charlton Athletic are reportedly ready to consider offers for striker Lyle Taylor with the forward’s current contract set to expire at the end of the season – and Leeds United fans have discussed potentially signing him on Twitter.

South London Press have claimed that Charlton’s new owners East Street Investments had put together a lucrative offer for 29-year-old Taylor, which would see the striker commit to The Addicks until the summer of 2022.

However, they included a deadline in which Taylor would have to make a decision on said offer – and that deadline has now passed. Charlton are now ready to listen to offers for the striker, given they could lose him on a free in the summer.

Charlton signed Taylor from AFC Wimbledon in the summer of 2018 and he was pivotal in their promotion from League One under Leeds favourite Lee Bowyer last season. He scored 25 goals in 45 games, and laid on an impressive 13 assists.

This season, he has continued that stunning form despite Charlton gaining promotion to the Championship. He has scored seven goals in 13 league games, but missed a large chunk of the campaign through injury.

Leeds fans reacted to the reported news that Charlton would be willing to listen to any offers for the Montserrat international, and many Whites supporters would certainly consider a move with Eddie Nketiah returning to Arsenal.
