Charlton’s Lyle Taylor is still on Brentford’s radar despite the West London welcoming forward Halil Dervisoglu to the club this month, pending international clearance.

Despite new Charlton owners East Street Investments prioritising retaining the former AFC Wimbledon man’s services beyond the end of the season, the high-flying Bees are expected to make another approach for the Addicks talisman.

It’s believed Thomas Frank’s side tabled bids of up to £4million in the last transfer window for the 29-year-old whose contract is up in the summer.

Taylor started the season in scintillating from, scoring five goals in six games before injury kept the Montserrat international out of action until mid-December.

With the demanding Championship schedule it’s thought Frank is worried his “fast running BMW” (Benrahma, Mbeumo and Watkins), may suffer burn-out and Taylor would be fit into his front line perfectly.

It’s known that Taylor rejected a contract offer from previous Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet earlier in the season, but a better offer is expected under the new ownership.

Meanwhile, Dervisoglu, who signed from Sparta Rotterdam in the summer was due to join up with the club this month is still awaiting international clearance.

The Turkish Youth International, 20, who started training with the Bees this week has scored five goals in 17 Eredivisie matches in the first half of the season.
