Celtic reportedly join the race to sign Charlton Athletic forward Lyle Taylor on a free transfer later in 2020.

Charlton Athletic forward Lyle Taylor has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Celtic.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Taylor is refusing to feature in Charlton's remaining Championship fixtures due to concerns over an injury scuppering a big-money elsewhere at the end of his contract.

That has led to speculation regarding his future, with Rangers, Bournemouth, West Bromwich Albion, Nottingham Forest, Brentford and Fulham all being linked with the 30-year-old.

According to journalist Jim White, Celtic are also monitoring the situation ahead of a possible approach for the frontman.

With Odsonne Edouard potentially leaving the Scottish champions later in 2020, Neil Lennon may need to find a cheaper replacement due to the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.

Taylor has contributed 36 goals during his two years at The Valley, including 11 strikes from 22 Championship outings this season.
