CHARLTON winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson could be off to the Premier League at the end of the season.
Gudmundsson joined Charlton on a two-year deal at the start of this season and his performances have started to catch the attention of clubs.
The 24-year-old Icelandic international, who had spells with Chelsea and Fulham as a youth, could be heading into the top-flight.
Gudmundsson is keen on moving up because there is no chance of him playing in the Premier League with the Addicks, while Charlton know they have to be realistic in terms of bigger clubs coming in to try and tempt players away from the Valley.
With only one year left on his contract, they know that it could be difficult for them to keep Gudmundsson.
Nottingham Forest are interested after they failed to sign him last summer.
Bournemouth are another team who have taken a look, but like Forest, will only make a move if they are promoted.
Stoke and Hull are also understood to have had scouts checking him out in recent weeks with a view to doing business in the summer. BRIGHTON central defender Lewis Dunk will be in demand when the transfer window opens at the end of the season.
Dunk, 23, is a target for Premier League sides West Brom, Everton and West Ham, who have all taken a look in the last few months. BIRMINGHAM are expected to rival Real Betis in the race to land highly rated Hearts winger Jamie Walker this summer.
Birmingham have had scouts checking out the Scottish U21 international during Hearts’ charge to the Scottish Championship title.
Walker is under contract until the end of 2017 and has been instrumental in the success that the Edinburgh side have enjoyed this season.
The Spanish side are expected to make an offer in the summer while West Brom have also been noting his progress.
But it is understood that they will only make a move for Walker if they are unsuccessful in their hunt for Birmingham’s Demarai Gray – the man Birmingham are looking to replace.
A host of Premier League clubs including Liverpool are keen on signing Gray, while Bournemouth are expected to also make another move if they are promoted to the top-flight.
