Millwall

‘Worth a punt’, ‘I don’t think so’ – 18-goal striker to Millwall: The verdict

Published

After an impressive end to last season – where Millwall nearly sneaked into the play-offs – Neil Harris will be hoping to use that momentum to launch another promotion bid.

One area he may look to strengthen is up front, to provide competition for Lee Gregory and Steve Morison.

Should Millwall make a late for Sunderland target Lyle Taylor, who hit 18 goals for AFC Wimbledon last season?

The 28-year-old started his career at Millwall is available on a free transfer this summer.

We discuss…

George Dagless

It’s worth a punt from the Lions.

The men from the New Den have got a habit of getting players to perform out of their skin in the Championship and, though it’d be a step up for Taylor from where he’s been recently, there’s no reason why he couldn’t adapt.

He’d be a typical Harris signing and you’d expect him to do well – especially with him having been there about ten years ago.

Alfie Burns

After a slow start last season, Taylor really got going post-October, with his goalscoring form excellent.

At the right price, he’d be good for Millwall and Harris could do far worse than taking a look at the 28-year-old.

Alongside some of Millwall’s other attacking options, the pressure would be off, which would give Taylor a great chance of succeeding in the Championship.

Gary Hutchinson

Yes, absolutely. Taylor is worth a punt, he’s got pace and poise and his goals kept Wimbledon up last season.

It’s last chance saloon for him too with his age, he needs his Championship break and being fair to the player, he deserves it.

Chris Gallagher

I don’t think so.

He’s not been the most prolific in League One and whilst he is a good player, Millwall need a goalscorer.

They have Steve Morison and Lee Gregory who are a very effective partnership but anyone brought in needs to be an improvement or someone close to those pair and Taylor isn’t at that level.
