Charlton Atheltic fans hate the idea of losing attacker Karlan Grant to Rangers this January, after he was linked with signing a pre-contract at Ibrox.
The Scottish Sun reported on Tuesday that the Gers see him as a long-term replacement for Colombian Alfredo Morelos, impressed with his form the English League One outfit so far this season.
Grant has scored 13 goals and assisted 5 times, helping Charlton challenge for promotion to the Championship.
With Morelos expected to leave the club for a bigger league over the next couple of years, Rangers need to start thinking of a succession plan to ensure there is no drop in quality in attack and it appears the Charlton 21-year-old fits the bill as a budget signing.
Fans of the Addicks hate the idea of losing him to Rangers and have pleaded on social media for him to sign a new contract, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.
These supporters discussed the issue on Twitter this week…
Every time we promote a young player into the first team and they’re successful, 6 months later they’re gone. Promotion keeps him or a decent contract @CAFCofficial

He's been decent this season for us. However, this is the first season he's a) really played well and earned his spot and b) been given a regular starting place. He has a lot of potential given he's only 21 and hopefully we can hang on to him.

Not a chance. He’s Charlton born and will continue with us in the championship, not a chance he will leave????????♀️

Get real…Neither Karlan or Lyle are going nowhere! Surely you can find some half decent scots to play for your team? #cafc
