Charlton Athletic's unsettled midfielder Jason Euell has emerged as a summer transfer target for London rivals Fulham and could go for just £2million.

The Jamaica international is keen to quit The Valley after starting just 14 league games last season and Addicks boss Alan Curbishley is prepared to field offers for the 28-year-old.

Euell looked set to leave SE7 in January, however firm interest in the £4.75million signing from Wimbledon failed to materialise.

Cottagers chief Chris Coleman is keen to add to his midfield amid speculation Frenchman Steed Malbranque could be heading for Premiership rivals Aston Villa.

Euell, who can also operate as a central striker, is in the final year of his contract at The Valley.


A Wimbledon youth product, Euell's versatility and eye for goal made him a key part of the Dons' first team set-up after he burst onto the scene in 1995/96 with a goal against Southampton.

The former England Under-21 international thrives on taking on defenders and he has shown his knack for coolness in the penalty area with a steady goalscoring ratio.

Good in the air and on the ground, Euell - like his contemporary Carl Cort, who moved to Newcastle United - attracted the attention of a host of scouts but Terry Burton was keen to keep him at Selhurst.

But when Charlton came in with a bid of £4.75million in the summer of 2001 it was too good to turn down - and Euell jumped at the chance of returning to the top flight after a season in the First Division. It was a new club record signing for Charlton.

Euell scored 41 goals in 118 League starts for Wimbledon.

The player made his debut in a 2-1 defeat at home to Everton, but had to wait until October for his first goal in a 1-1 draw at Derby County.

Euell went on to notch 13 goals in his first season at The Valley, making him top scorer.

At Charlton he became accustomed to playing in midfield, as well as up top, making him a versatile squad member.

Euell once more topped the scoring charts in 2002/03 with 11 goals, mostly from the centre of the park. He was also runner-up in the Addicks' player of the year poll.

He started the 2003/04 with a bang, netting three goals in the opening four games, but then a row with manager Alan Curbishley resulted in him being relegated to the bench.

They did patch up their differences, and Euell scored 10 Premiership goals that season - meaning he was again the leading goalscorer. He also passed 100 appearances for Charlton
