Charlie Taylor next club tips
FootyOn pick out Charlie Taylor next club tips, with the wantaway Leeds United left back out of contract this summer.
The York-born defender has played right through the age groups at Elland Road, but refused to play the last match of the season against Wigan Athletic, according to boss Garry Monk.
That suggests that it’s the end of the road for Taylor at Leeds, and as a result a number of Premier League clubs are circling to gain the 23-year-old’s signature.
So, read on for our Charlie Taylor next club tips…
All odds are with BetVictor, and subject to change, and the player must be signed before September 3rd 2017…
West Bromwich Albion – 4/7
The Baggies lead the way to snap up Taylor, according to BetVictor and newspaper reports.
With usual right back Allan Nyom and midfielder Chris Brunt having to play in left defence for most of the season, Tony Pulis needs to invest in the summer.
As West Brom have Asian investment behind them, a small compensation fee of around £4m for out-of-contract Taylor is small change for the Midlands outfit.
Pulis’ men are way up in eighth this season currently too, so Taylor would be joining an upper-mid table team if he signs for them.
Stoke City – 4/1
Stoke are next in our Charlie Taylor next club tips, and again they are a club of similar ilk to West Brom.
Perhaps more stylish on the field, though, with the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Ibrahim Afellay among their ranks, Taylor could favour a move to the Potters instead.
However, Mark Hughes already has a left back in his team, Netherlands international Erik Pieters.
Liverpool – 6/1
Could Taylor find himself at a higher-profile club?
A move to Liverpool would certainly be a step up from the above two teams.
Jurgen Klopp is in desperate need of a left back too, with James Milner having to play there most of the campaign.
Snapping up a young, promising and cheap English player could suit the Reds too.
Everton – 6/1
Fellow Merseyside outfit Everton are priced the same as Liverpool to sign Taylor this summer.
They are slightly less in need of a left back, though, with established star Leighton Baines still going strong.
Though, the Toffees will need to plan for the future, with Baines turning 33 later this year.
Tottenham – 8/1
Taylor has never ventured down south during his fledgling career to date, spending spells on loan at Yorkshire outfits York City and Bradford, Scottish club Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Lancashire’s Fleetwood Town.
But fellow Yorkshiremen Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Aaron Lennon and Michael Dawson have all flourished at Spurs in recent years.
The aforementioned Rose would be competition, but he is linked with a move away, so could Taylor be an ideal replacement?
