What does the future hold for Karlan Grant?

Charlton Athletic are flying high in League One this season as Lee Bowyer’s side look to mount a serious promotion push.

The Addicks are currently within touching distance of leaders Portsmouth, although The Valley outfit have played more games than anyone else in their grasp.

Scoring goals has not been a problem for the south London club this season as they have managed to net 47 times so far – although the defence could be an area of concern for Bowyer’s side.

Karlan Grant has been in and amongst the goals for The Addicks this season, as well as Lyle Taylor, however, there are growing concerns about the forward’s future at Charlton Athletic.

The 21-year-old has been winning the plaudits for his performances in SE7, having hit the back of the net 14 times in 27 League One appearances.

Only John Marquis and Josh Maja, of Doncaster Rovers and Sunderland respectively, have recorded more goals so far.

Obviously, a player’s ability to find the net can attract plenty of unwanted interest and it appears Grant has plenty of suitors.


And, that could spell bad news for Charlton as the player’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

The Scottish Sun have claimed that Rangers are understood to have held an interest in the player at some point and have watched the player in action.

And, as the January transfer window continues to move forward, a whole host of clubs continually be linked with a move for Grant.

Sky Sports have stated that Brentford are keeping tabs on the 21-year-old, alongside Huddersfield Town and fierce south London rivals Millwall.

The Daily Mail (print edition, page 65, January 23rd), via HITC Sport, are also suggesting West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough are the latest clubs to be keen.

Grant certainly appears to have a bright future ahead of him, however, where he will be playing his football come the end of January, or the summer remains to be seen.
