Brentford have cooled their interest in Michiel Kramer with Charlton Athletic now leading the chase for the striker.
The 26-year-old reportedly turned down a move to Sheffield Wednesday earlier this month and the Bees were also interested in the ADO Den Haag forward.
Bees boss Marinus Dijkhuizen is a big fan of his free-scoring fellow countryman and had added him to his summer shopping list.
However, the Addicks are now the third Championship club to make an enquiry for the player. who scored 17 times in the Eredivisie last season, and Brentford have taken a step back.
Dijkhuizen’s side are expected to seal one deal in the coming days as GetWestLondon revealed on Friday that their mystery signing is set to be revealed as Konstantin Kerschbaumer.
A photograph had emerged online late last week of an unknown player being paraded in front of the cameras at Griffin Park.
Owner Matthew Benham tweeted out a cryptic clue as to the true identity of the mystery figure and all clues point to Austrian midfielder Kerschbaumer.
The 22-year-old currently plies his trade with FC Admira Wacker Mödling in the Austrian Bundesliga.
