Millwall simply must be looking at this 15-goal ace this summer

Millwall need to use this summer window to build on what was a good Championship campaign in 2017/18.

Of course, it ended in disappointment as they missed out on the play-offs, but even being able to say that shows you how well the Lions did in their first year back in the second tier.

Neil Harris needs to plan to avoid second-season syndrome setting in, though, so bringing in players that can add some extra spark and that want to prove a point might be a wise strategy.

That, then, is how we come to Erhun Oztumer.

Dubbed the ‘Turkish Messi,’ the diminutive, attack-minded ace scored 15 goals and set-up a further seven in League One for a Walsall side that largely spent the year looking over their shoulder.

He himself has said he doesn’t want to renew his contract this summer and would rather move on to bigger things so the Lions should be looking to pounce.

Clearly, he’s a player with the drive needed to excel further up and with Millwall perhaps just needing an extra bit of flair to compliment their superb organisation to really make a go of things next season, he looks an ideal arrival.

Neil Harris has done a fine job of instilling the right work ethic and attitude you need to go far in the second tier and now he just needs to add some extra stardust to potentially get them over the line.

He has to be careful of bringing in luxury players who won’t put a shift in as that will undo all his good work but, if he goes for a determined Oztumer, no such eventuality will come to pass.
