Millwall are poised to sign Jon Dadi Bodvarsson from Reading, report London News Online.
The striker would become the club’s fifth signing of the summer and would help to bolster Millwall’s attacking options following the signing of Matt Smith from QPR earlier this month.
The 27-year-old could also fly out to join the Millwall squad in their training camp in Portugal, and boss Neil Harris will be looking forward to getting him started as soon as possible.
Millwall are showing no signs of slowing down this summer and the versatile Bodvarsson could go straight into the starting line-up. He only played 20 times for Reading last season but scored six, and he now has three years of Championship football under his belt, having previously played for Wolves.
This would be a useful addition for Millwall, but you can’t help but feel that he is a downgrade on Lee Gregory, and Millwall will need a more reliable goal source if they are to avoid a relegation battle.
Bodvarsson is a great option to have and would be the perfect partner for a natural goalscorer, which Millwall currently lack. Despite that, if he partners Smith upfront the Millwall attack will have a variety of different threats, and should therefore be more unpredictable than last season.
Neil Harris often gets the best out of his players, particularly his strikers, and although neither Bodvarsson and Smith are not particularly young, they should develop their game and improve from working under him.
