Strikers Don't Come Cheap

Strikers Don't Come Cheap

If prove was wanted that proper goalscoring strikers don't come cheap, even at a lower level then Phil Parkinson has revealed proof of this.

A striker that can score 15-20 goals is something that Charlton have been crying out for now for a few years, however picking these up for nothing or next to nothing is almost impossible!

The Addicks boss has revealed that an enquiry made about a striker that has a goalscoring record (but only in the lower leagues) saw him quoted £1m, Parkinson told The South London Press: "I enquired about a lad who has only scored goals in the lower divisions and I got quoted a figure of £1m.

"It shows how no-one wants to relinquish their goalscorers."

Dagenham & Redbridge's Paul Benson has been linked with The Addicks, with three separate bids rejected so it's possible that the 30-year-old is the striker that's talked about here?

Potentially our best chance of bringing in a striker will come in the form of a loan from a Premier League club once they announce their 25-man squad? However the player would need his club to cover most of the wages and still have to be willing to drop down two leagues and not many clubs would do that, nor would many players drop that low!

What is the thought among the Addicks followers on this site on Phil Parkinson's thoughts on striker? Share these feelings below so we can discuss them.
