Charlton Athletic are considering making a move to sign Stevenage’s Matt Godden according to a report from the London Evening Standard.
The 26-year-old striker was one of the stars of Sky Bet League Two last season, scoring 21 goals as they just missed out on the play-off places. But as you’d expect with any player that his hit form, teams further up the league ladder have noticed him and are starting to become more interested. It is already believed that Stevenage have turned two bids down from Sky Bet League One clubs while Ipswich Town are believed to have enquired into his availability this summer.
But now Stevenage will have to fend off another team as Charlton are starting to become interested in signing him. The Addicks are fans of him and think he could end up adding a lot to their team and helping in their bid to get promoted from League One, though they are yet to decide if they are going to make an offer for him. They will have to decide soon though as the transfer window will close in just a few weeks.
And even if Charlton do put in a bid in, Stevenage may not be willing to sell just yet. The club have no need to sell and have seen the value of players in League Two skyrocket recently, especially with Exeter City being able to sell Ollie Watkins to Brentford for £2m earlier in the window. So expect them to hold out for as much as possible should Charlton make a bid.
