3 Alfie May replacements Charlton Athletic must consider new offer…

Charlton Athletic talisman Alfie May has already attracted interest from elsewhere this summer when Huddersfield Town made a bid.

Charlton Athletic rightly turned down the relegated Terriers’ offer for star man May.

However, there are reports that Huddersfield Town are expected to return with a new offer. It remains to be seen when that lands and how much will be presented to the Addicks.

One or two strikers will be needed in The Valley before a possible departure to May. An exit for him would leave a big hole in Nathan Jones’ attack, so the south London outfit would be wise to keep some potential replacements in mind.

Here we suggest three attackers Charlton Athletic should consider amid the strong interest in May…

The 26-year-old striker Evans has made quite an impression in his native Wales. It all led to the season of his life as he scored 25 goals and four assists in 55 appearances for League Two side Newport County in the 2023/2024 season.

Evans is still under contract until next summer, but should a club like Charlton Athletic come calling, it would not be a surprise if he was tempted to leave Rodney Parade ahead of next season.

A move could also appeal to Newport, giving them the chance to cash in on their star striker and removing any risk of losing him for nothing next year.

Jackson will leave Ipswich Town this summer following their promotion to the Premier League, and he will have no shortage of suitors as his next move awaits.

He was regularly involved in Kieran McKenna’s side, offering his services as a striker or winger. The 30-year-old has spent much of his time playing off the bench, but a return to League One could offer him a return to grassroots football.

Jackson has done well in the third tier before and will only go from strength to strength during his time in the Championship. On a free transfer, this would be a strong signing for Charlton Athletic should they lose May.

An ambitious suggestion perhaps, but Langstaff has been one of the most productive strikers in England alongside Charlton Athletic star May in recent seasons.

He was crucial in getting Notts County into League Two and in his first season at this level, the forward scored 28 goals and four assists in 46 appearances for the Magpies.

Langstaff is under contract until 2027 and has just become club captain at Meadow Lane. If he does move, it won’t be cheap, but the Addicks should aim high if they lose May.
