Charlton Athletic technical director Andy Scott on striker target in summer transfer window

Charlton Athletic technical director Andy Scott has stated that the League One team would have “enough options” in its striking department next season.

The Addicks have recently acknowledged the departure of Connor Wickham, who had signed a short-term contract for the final months of the season.

Freddie Ladapo, who joined on loan from Ipswich Town during the January transfer window, has returned to his original club.

Charlton does have the League One Golden Boot winner in Alfie May.

Miles Leaburn and Chuks Aneke were both unavailable due to injury this season, which may have improved youngster Daniel Kanu’s game time.

Leaburn, a promising prospect, had hamstring surgery in December. Still only 20, the forward scored seven goals in 18 games, adding to the 13 he scored the previous season, his first at senior level.

We recently highlighted that Coventry City’s Matty Godden is a player to watch. The Kent-born striker could be allowed to leave for a cheap fee.
“We need to strengthen every department,” Scott told the South London Press when asked about their ambitions to increase their forward options.

“We’ve had numerous discussions regarding that forward area.

“In December, we suffered the loss of Miles and Chuks. Alfie was our only striker. Patrick Casey and Henry Rylah arrived, so we were pretty short. The top clubs have options, and we need to ensure that we have enough to deal with the calendar and game demands.”
