Millwall and QPR are interested in Doncaster Rovers striker John Marquis.

The 27-year-old is man in-demand this summer, as per a report by the Sunderland Echo.

Sunderland have been long-term admirers of him and are also being linked with a fresh move for him this summer.

Marquis, who is 6ft 1inc, has scored 67 goals in 153 games altogether for Doncaster. Their boss, Grant McCann, has admitted he could leave the club over the coming months: “If John is here for the first game of the season then great. We’ll try to get him among the goals again,”

“If truth be told, John probably doesn’t want to be here. He feels he deserves a crack at the Championship and so do I to be honest. I think to score 26 goals, he deserves the chance at a Championship club and we won’t stand in his way.”

He added: “We’ve had nothing for four or five days but there have been two or three bids come in for John. There’s nothing that meets the club’s valuation – nothing anywhere near it.”

QPR have been busy of late bolstering their squad ahead of next season and have landed goalkeeper Liam Kelly from Livingston and left-back Lee Wallace from Rangers. Could Marquis join them at Loftus Road?
