Millwall are set to make an improved bid for Sheffield Wednesday attacker Josh Windass.
The Lions had an initial offer knocked back for the 27-year-old, who scored nine goals in 41 Championship matches for the relegated Owls.
The South London Press understands that Millwall are readying a new attempt to land Windass, who has also played for Wigan, Rangers and Accrington Stanley.
Millwall are also working on a deal for a different striker as well as being close to a loan signing of a young defender from a Premier League club.
The Lions have made one signing this summer with goalkeeper George Long arriving on a free transfer once his Hull City contract expires.
Millwall manager Gary Rowett has already made it clear he wants to bring in two offensive players – one of those a forward – as he looks to strengthen his squad for the 2021-22 campaign.
