The Scottish Sun have reported that Charlton are aware of apparent Rangers interest in their most prized asset.
Karlan Grant, their free scoring striker, is only contracted until June and the Gers are reportedly keen on a pre-contract deal.
21-year-old Grant, is a product of the youth system at The Valley.
A former England youth international at several age groups, he had largely failed to make an impact in senior football until this season.
Grant last netted at the weekend, in a comfortable win over Greg Docherty’s Shrewsbury Town.
13 strikes, leaves him joint third in the League One goal scoring charts. That’s one goal behind Tom Eaves,
As news of the report filtered through on Twitter late last night, fans expressed their excitement.
Cracking player. Lyle Taylor also cracking player. Two are ripping league 1 apart

Several Charlton fans were pretty adamant their man was going nowhere though.
Get real…Neither Karlan or Lyle are going nowhere! Surely you can find some half decent scots to play for your team? #cafc

Rangers currently have good options in forward areas, but that could change by the summer.
Additionally, should Grant wish to leave Charlton, Rangers have the distinct advantage of having to pay a much less significant development fee than English clubs.
This is certainly one to track over the next couple of weeks.
