Here are five players that Charlton should sign in the summer, to push for promotion to the Championship –
Eoin Doyle, Preston North End – Doyle is a proven goalscorer in League One, as he showed last season with Oldham Athletic where he scored 16 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions. To add to this, the Irishman scored 25 goals in 33 appearances for Chesterfield during the 2014/15 season. With him not being needed at Preston North End this may lead Charlton to swoop in for a deal.
Ben Heneghan, Sheffield United – He’s been transfer listed by Sheffield United and Charlton should swoop in for deal as Charlton defender Patrick Bauer is wanted by Blackburn Rovers. Heneghan started his career on the books of Everton, before moving to Stoke City, prior to dropping into non-league and learning his trade with Chester City, having trailed with Accrington Stanley and Oldham Athletic. In June 2016, the centre-half joined Motherwell and has impressed during his two years north of the border. Chris Wilder swooped for the defender on deadline day in August 2017.
Omar Bogle, Cardiff City – With Cardiff’s promotion to the Premiership this could open up a move for Bogle who could be a good striker for the League One side. The former England ‘C’ international has been in free-scoring form over the past few seasons after scoring a 62 goals in just over 100 appearances at Solihull Moors. That form led to a move to Grimsby Town where he bagged 32 goals in 68 appearances.
Ethan Ampadu, Chelsea – Having joined Chelsea in the summer from Exeter, highly-rated starlet Ethan Ampadu has impressed Antonio Conte to such an extent that he did not allow him to go out on loan and has instead found himself on the fringes of the first team picture. The 17-year-old made his debut in the Carabao Cup third round against Nottingham Forest last season, garnering rave reviews with a calm, assured performance in the middle of the park.
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, QPR – The 27-year-old joined QPR in 2015 from Bristol City on a free transfer. However, he has struggled to make an impact at Loftus Road and has been shipped out on loan twice to MK Dons and then Gillingham. With his QPR contact up this summer maybe this will tempt Charlton to take a gamble on the former League One title winner.
