Charlton Athletic could make a move for Blackpool striker Armand Gnanduillet in January.

The Addicks are looking to bolster their attacking options this winter, according to a report by London News Online.

Lee Bowyer’s side tried to sign the 6ft 4inc forward over the summer but a move fell through. However, the London outfit are considering moving back in for him.

Gnanduillet, who is 27 years-old, is a man in-demand having scored 12 goals so far this season for the Tangerines. He is out of contract at Bloomfield Road at the end of the campaign meaning the League One side are vulnerable to losing him in January for a paid fee.

The France-born striker started his career with spells as a youngster at Le Havre and AS Poissy before moving to England six years ago to join Chesterfield.

He went on to make 98 appearances for the Spirerites and scored 13 goals altogether, as well as having loan spells away at Tranmere Rovers, Oxford United and Stevenage.

Gnanduillet left Chesterfield to sign for Leyton Orient in January 2016 for an undisclosed and spent two years with the London outfit, chipping in with four goals.

He then joined Blackpool in August 2016 and has been a big player for the Seasiders since then.

He helped them gain promotion from League Two in his first season at the club and then consolidate their position in the third tier.

Gnanduillet bagged 14 goals last term and is well on the way to beating that tally this time around.
