Chem Campbell is a twenty year old forward who has joined Charlton on a season-long loan from Wolves.
He made his first appearance for Wolves in the EFL Cup in October 2019 and made his Premier League debut as a substitute at Newcastle in April 2022. He featured in a further five Premier League matches last season before joining Wycombe Wanderers on loan where he scored three goals in twelve League One games.
He will bring some much-needed height to the Charlton forward line and will hopefully be able to take some weight off the shoulders of Alfie May. Although his experience is very limited (a total of 18 career appearances) it is worth remembering that Jes Rak-Sakyi arrived at The Valley this time last year with just two senior appearances in his portfolio.
After completing his move Chem said: “I would say the style of play is my style of football - attacking and getting at players. I just want to impress and help the team. I look to attack one-v-one and try and score goals and get assists, which I see as my job. As long as I can bring that I think the fans will be happy. It’s a new challenge and I want to take it and push on.”
Manager Dean Holden commented: “Chem is an exciting young attacker, who can play across the forward line. He has plenty of pace and the ability to beat a player and made good progress last season playing games in the Premier League for Wolves, along with a positive loan at Wycombe Wanderers. He is a good finisher who can create and score goals. He will add a lot of quality to our front line.”
