What do we think?
Taylor’s recent comments have clearly impressed Charlton fans, something that the 29-year-old has also been doing on the pitch throughout the season.
The forward, who is valued at £1.62 million (as per Transfermarkt), has scored 11 goals and provided one assist in his 22 Championship appearances so far this season, averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.76.
With Charlton currently occupying 22nd place in the Championship table, it is evident to see why many fans are so desperate to keep a goalscorer such as Taylor at the club.
