Barnsley

Sources close to HITC Sport understand that a number of Championship clubs are chasing Doncaster Rovers striker John Marquis.

John Marquis has been on fire in front of goal for Doncaster Rovers this season and he has helped spearhead their promotion challenge in League Two.

With six games to play, Doncaster are six points clear at the top of the table and have established a sixteen point gap inside the automatic promotion places.

This is largely down to the goals provided by John Marquis: the prolific striker has struck 26 goals this season, making him the joint top scorer in England’s professional leagues this term.

The 24-year-old is being chased by East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town and Norwich City as well as a number of other Championship sides.

Relegation threatened duo Bristol City and Blackburn Rovers also want the former Millwall forward, whilst Barnsley are in the hunt for Marquis too.

Sheffield United, who could seal promotion to the Championship soon, are also interested in the Doncaster striker.

Championship fans – would you like to sign Marquis? Can he step up and perform in the Championship? Let us know in the comments below…
