South London Press understands that Peterborough United have had an offer for Charlton Athletic striker Josh Magennis rejected. The player has 12-months remaining on his contract at The Valley and Steve Evans is hoping to snap up the player for a reduced fee.
The Peterborough Telegraph believes that Charlton could be willing to listen for offers for the player. This is a strong hint that Magennis is not necessarily too willing to be a contract extension with the Addicks. Caretaker manager Lee Bowyer therefore may look to move the player on, but only for the right price, which clearly Peterborough are yet to meet.
It is clear that Evans is still hoping to add more power to his Posh attacking line up. This is evident by the fact they have had bids for Bradford City’s Charlie Wyke and Mo Eisa of Cheltenham Town rejected in recent times. Magennis is a target man that fits the DNA for the type of player he wants within his squad, as the former Leeds United boss looks to built a team capable of winning promotion.
It is believed that Bolton Wanderers are keen on the Northern Ireland international as well. They too are in the market for Wyke, but are keeping tabs on the 27-year-old should they miss out on the Bradford front man.
Magennis managed to net 13 goals for club & country last season, which included a consolation goal for his national team in a 3-1 home defeat versus 2018 World Cup flops Germany in October 2017.
