Charlton Athletic land another major transfer target as deal completed for Ipswich striker Gassan Ahadme

Charlton Athletic have completed the signing of Ipswich Town striker Gassan Ahadme.

The 23-year-old has signed a contract until the summer of 2028.

The fee for Spanish-born Ahadme, who has represented Morocco at youth level, is undisclosed.

The transfer means that Addicks manager Nathan Jones has been successful in landing two of his long-term attacking targets – with Matty Godden arriving from Coventry City earlier this week.

Ahadme scored 13 goals on loan at Cambridge United last season – including a late brace in the 2-2 draw at The Valley last season.

Jones said: “I’m delighted we’ve signed Gassan, he was a real number one target for us. Like with the signing of Matty Godden, it has been a long process – we’ve been pursuing him all summer. We’re delighted to add him, he brings us quality, and a presence and profile of a number nine.

“His arrival continues the recruitment process that we want with a focus on being categorically stronger as a squad coming out of the transfer window.

“The two strikers we’ve signed have real pedigree and I’d like to thank the board and the ownership for backing us on these signings. Our squad has significantly improved already this summer and we haven’t finished our recruitment.”

Ahadme said: “Since the first time I spoke with Nathan, I was impressed with the things that he told me, and especially the energy that I felt from him and the things that he wants to do. It’s a really ambitious project and that’s why I’m excited to be here.”

Ahadme is the sixth deal done in this transfer window by Charlton.

Technical director Andy Scott said: “We’re delighted to bring Gassan to Charlton. He’s a player we identified as having all the attributes to be an important player for us at this level and as we progress.

“He has size and a physical presence combined with a good touch and an ability to score goals. Off the pitch he is a dedicated professional with a hunger to improve.

“He fits the profile Nathan was looking for in a player, is committed to taking the club forward and will benefit from Nathan’s ability to take players to the next level.”
