According to the Sheffield Star, Sheffield Wednesday are interested in Lyle Taylor and could make a move for the 29-year-old in January as a replacement for the injured Steven Fletcher.
Taylor could be on the move from Charlton Athletic after turning down a new deal. The Addicks may need to cash in on their striker now rather than risk losing him for nothing in July, so Wednesday could capitalise on the situation.
The Montserrat international has been in fantastic form this season, scoring seven goals in 13 Championship games, so he wouldn’t be a bad option to offset the loss of Fletcher.
Garry Monk recently revealed that Wednesday would be without their top scorer for up to ten weeks after he picked up a knee injury in the Owls’ FA Cup win over Brighton & Hove Albion (January 4).
And while Monk has Jordan Rhodes (3), Atdhe Nuhiu (2), Sam Winnall (1) and Fernando Forestieri (1) at his disposal, the four strikers have only scored seven league goals between them this season. Fletcher has 12 on his own.
Charlton want to keep Taylor, likely due to their desperation to stave off relegation, but the striker may be open to joining a side chasing the playoffs.
