Ipswich Town are being linked with a move for Norwich City midfielder Ben Marshall ahead of the January transfer window, according to reputable journalist, Alan Nixon.
Nixon revealed that they are eyeing a move for the 27-year-old who seems to have fallen out of favour at Carrow Road as Norwich mount their promotion challenge this season.
The journalist also revealed that Millwall are also interested in signing the midfielder who has the ability to be an excellent addition for most Championship sides.
Marshall had spent the back end of last season at Millwall and the Lions would be confident of beating Ipswich to his signature ahead of the transfer window reopening in the New Year.
A loan move is reportedly the most likely option and the former Wolves man has a decision on his hands, as he looks to prove himself whilst out on loan again this season.
Marshall has only made four appearances this season for the Canaries and despite his injury problems, he hasn’t featured for Daniel Farke’s side on his return to action.
Ipswich have looked like a team void of ideas and confidence in the early stages of this season and they will be one of the favourites to be relegated.
Paul Lambert certainly has something to build on heading into the New Year though, as his side picked up an all important three points against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
But it won’t come as a surprise to see Lambert targeting replacements in January, with the current players at the club, not looking like they are the men to fire them out of the relegation places anytime soon.
This would be a smart bit of business by Ipswich, as they battle to retain their Championship status.
They need someone who can unlock defences with ease, and Marshall certainly falls into that category, and he has a point to prove after a lack of game time in recent seasons.
If Paul Lambert hands him a lifeline to save his career, then he could repay that by being the man to save Ipswich from relegation to League One, which at the moment, looks a real possibility.
