We reported here on The72 last week that Championship outfit Millwall were keen on a move for Queens Park Rangers striker Matt Smith this summer, with a potential move being lined up by Neil Harris’ side.

Now, it has emerged that the club have made their move to try and tempt Queens Park Rangers into allowing Smith to make a move to The Den this summer. However, their first offer for the target man has been turned down by QPR. That being said, talks between the two clubs are continuing, with Neil Harris looking to bring in some new faces this summer.

With Lee Gregory’s departure from Millwall imminent. the club are keen to bring in a new striker. Smith would fit the bill at Millwall, being an experienced and physical striker.

Smith scored eight goals and provided one assist for Queens Park Rangers last season, playing in 42 games across all competitions. Most of his appearances were off the bench playing second fiddle to both Tomer Hemed and Nahki Wells over the course of the season.

The 198cm striker uses his height and strength to his advantage in his game, proving to be a physical handful for defenders up and down the Football League over the course of his career. Playing for the likes of Macclesfield Town, Bristol City, Leeds United, Fulham, Oldham Athletic and QPR, Smith has amassed 307 career appearances, scoring 74 goals and providing 30 assists along the way.
