Reports suggest that midfielder Bryan Hughes and Moroccan defender Talal El Karkouri will be arriving in South East London ahead of the new campaign.
Hughes (pictured) is available on a Bosman free after turning down the offer of a new three-year contract with Birmingham City back in April.
Blues were hoping Hughes would stay at St Andrews, but the player now looks set to move to a Premiership rival in Charlton.
He looks set to be joined by El Karkouri, who has declared that he is leaving French giants Paris Saint Germain and heading for an, as yet, unnamed club in England.
The tough tackling defender, who had an unsuccessful spell on loan at Sunderland in the 2002/03 season, is also out of contract at the French capital club.
The North African star is said to have already signed for the unnamed club - with reports in France having already suggested that it is The Addicks.
