Comment: 3 strikers Charlton Athletic should pursue after Danny Hylton’s Northampton Town move

Charlton Athletic had been mentioned in the race to sign Danny Hylton, but he has now completed a move to League Two side Northampton Town.

Charlton Athletic boss Ben Garner will be keen to bolster his attacking options in his first transfer window in charge at The Valley.

Jayden Stockley, Chuks Aneke and the returning Josh Davison are all options at the top of the pitch, but another proven option wouldn’t go amiss heading into the 2022/23 campaign.

With that in mind, here are three strikers the Addicks should consider after Hylton opted for Northampton Town…

John Marquis

Marquis will be leaving Lincoln City this summer and given his level of Football League pedigree, could be a great option for Garner.

The 30-year-old Londoner still managed nine goals and four assists last season and has proven to be a real danger in League One before. With a free transfer swoop there to be made, Marquis will surely have plenty of suitors this summer.

James Norwood

Another League One hotshot available for nothing is Norwood. The 31-year-old’s time with Ipswich Town is coming to a close and although he didn’t quite like up to expectations, he still managed a decent total of 28 goals in 88 outings for the club.

A run of four goals in four consecutive games against some of League One’s best sides in Wigan Athletic, Sunderland and Wycombe Wanderers last season shows he still has what it takes to impress at this level and could be a smart signing for Charlton Athletic.

Kyle Hudlin

If the Addicks fancy taking a chance on someone younger, Solihull Moors’ towering striker Hudlin could be an intriguing player to target.

At 22, he has the physical attributes to be a nuisance at any level and if Garner can refine the technical side of his game, he could be a serious threat in League One. Hudlin has been offered a new deal by Solihull Moors amid links with Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday but could be another eye-catching option for Charlton Athletic.
