Report: Charlton make move to sign Anderlecht striker Nathan Kabasele

Charlton Athletic

The Anderlecht striker is wanted by Championship side Charlton Athletic.

According to HLN, Charlton have made a move to sign Nathan Kabasele from RSC Anderlecht, with him seemingly set for a summer exit from the club.

Anderlecht have already offered him to Mouscron-Peruwelz, whilst St. Pauli have also been showing an interest in the forward, but Charlton have made formal approaches to sign the young striker.

However, it is stated that the Addicks could face difficulty in doing a deal with Anderlecht, as there is a bad relationship between the Belgian giants and Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet - who also owns rival club Standard de Liege.

Who is Kabasele?

Kabasele, 21, is a striker who currently plays for Anderlecht. He progressed through the club’s academy system, and has scored six goals in 26 games for the club. He has also spent loan spells with De Graafschap - eight goals in 34 games - and Torino - four goals in eight games.

A Belgian youth international, the youngster has been capped at every level from Under-15 up to Under-21. He is currently still a member of the Under-21 squad, and has three goals in four appearances for them.

Anderlecht are keen to get him off their books this summer to keep his development progressing, with first-team chances looking unlikely. He has shown a natural eye for goal in his short career, and he could prove to be a shrewd signing by Charlton, who have already had succes shopping in the Belgian markets.
