Preston North End are set to sign Charlton Athletic defender Patrick Baeur, as reported by The72.

Here are five other players the Lilywhites should try and sign this summer-

Jordan Hugill- Could Alex Neil bring the target man back to Deepdale? The 27-year-old is available for transfer from West Ham United and is set to leave them this summer. He spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough.

CJ Hamilton- The Mansfield Town winger is a man in-demand this summer having impressed in League Two last season. He would offer Preston another option and depth in midfield.

Sammie Szmodics- The Lancashire side like to go for players from the lower leagues and the Colchester United midfielder is one they could target. The highly-rated 23-year-old has played over 150 times for the U’s so far in his career.

Sikira Dembele- He has been linked with Swansea City recently but would suit Preston. The Peterborough United forward looks to have a bright future in the game ahead of him and did well last season in his first campaign in League One. He looks to have what it takes to play in the Championship.

Semi Ajayi- The Rotherham United man was a standout performer for the Millers last season despite their relegation to the third tier. He deserves another chance in the Championship and would be a useful signing for Preston as he can play in either defence or midfield.
