The son of former midfielder ace and Charlton legend, Rob Lee, is a target for Karl Robinson in the January transfer window.
Elliott Lee made a permanent move to Barnsley in the Summer, after a deal had been made with West Ham. However, the striker has unfortunately fell down the pecking order, and it is understood that The Tykes are set to make a deal on a loan move for their summer signing.
When examining the youngster’s goal tally, it is not too impressive. However, his natural position is as a striker, and at The Tykes he has only been played as a winger, and this was also the case when he had a loan move to Colchester United last season.
Talking to his dad on Twitter, I mentioned that his goal tally did not look too impressive, but I was willing to give him a chance in a Charlton shirt. Rob Lee responded, and said the reason is because his son has not been played in his most comfortable position, and ensured me he will score goals.
Rob Lee also mentioned that he would love to see his son play in a Charlton shirt, and follow a successful career like he did at The Valley. The midfield ace played over 300 games in a Charlton shirt, and it is understood that Elliott is keen to follow in his dad’s footsteps.
However, the youngster is attracting interest throughout the EFL for a possible loan move, including Millwall, Oxford, Southend, Barnet and Crawley Town.
Robinson did mentioned in his post-match press conference after the Southend game, that he was considering a striker move in order to bolster his arsenal. Time will tell if Elliott Lee is the striker that Robinson is looking for.
