Charlton Athletic set sights on striker Paul Mullin

Charlton Athletic want to sign striker Paul Mullin, according to journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter (see tweet below).

Charlton Athletic are the latest club to take an interest in the attacker.

Mullin, who is 26-years-old, is available on a free transfer after turning down the chance to stay with Cambridge United.

He scored 34 goals in all competitions last season to fire the U’s to promotion from League Two but is weighing up his next move in the game.

Charlton are in the hunt for a striker to replace last term’s top scorer Chuks Aneke, who left for Birmingham City to reunite with Lee Bowyer.

Mullin only joined Cambridge last summer having previously played for the likes of Morecambe, Swindon Town and Tranmere Rovers.

Preston North End and Middlesbrough are said to be keen, as previously reported by Football Insider, whilst Blackburn Rovers are also believed to be interested, as per Football League World.

However, Charlton could now swoop in ahead of them and lure him to the Valley.


Nigel Adkins’ side need more bodies in their squad and Mullin would be a decent signing for the London club if they were able to get him.

He has been the most prolific striker in the Football League over the past 12 months and will be itching to show what he can do at a higher level than League Two.

This one seems a no brainer for Charlton.
