Millwall boss Gary Rowett has stated that the club are looking to bring in a creative attacking midfielder this summer, as per a recent post on Twitter by South London Press sports editor Richard Cawley.
The Lions fell to defeat last night against a ruthless Fulham side and it underlined the need for more new faces to be brought into the football club.
Rowett has already been busy this summer, bringing in the likes of Scott Malone, George Long, George Saville, Daniel Ballard and Benik Afobe from Derby County, Hull City, Middlesbrough, Arsenal and Stoke City respectively.
Now the Millwall boss has outlined which area he would like to strengthen in next:

It is as yet unclear as to how many players will be leaving the club over the next few weeks nor is it clear as to what players are on Rowett’s radar as potential new additions.
Meanwhile the Lions will be looking to bounce back this weekend as they travel to South Wales to take on Cardiff City.
Millwall did a lot of their business early, however they are now at a stage where they need to attempt to strengthen in what is a key area of the field of play.
Another creative player would help to take some of the strain of the likes of Jed Wallace in the final third and it would in theory give them yet another option that they don’t currently have at their disposal.
A loan signing could be a good route to take for the Lions, as a lot more Premier League sides are now more keen to let their youngsters leave after their more senior pros returned from extended holidays.
It will certainly be intriguing to see whether the new addition will be a permanent or temporary signing as the end of the window draws closer.
