Report: Sheffield Wednesday want Millwall's Lee Gregory after 26-goal season, will cost £2m

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly keen on Millwall striker Lee Gregory.

According to the Daily Mail, Sheffield Wednesday are keen to sign Millwall striker Lee Gregory this summer, after he enjoyed a remarkable season in League One.

The Owls are preparing for the Championship play-off final against Hull City having beaten Brighton over two legs in the last week, but whether Wednesday are in the Premier League or the Championship, manager Carlos Carvalhal will have some summer transfer targets in mind.

Another striker may be needed with both Atdhe Nuhiu and Lucas Joao blowing hot and cold over the course of the season, and it seems that the Owls have set their sights on a hometown player.

The Daily Mail report that Wednesday are looking to land Millwall striker Lee Gregory, who was born in Sheffield and was even on the books with Wednesday's city rivals, Sheffield United.

Gregory, 27, made his name in non-league with Halifax Town as Jamie Vardy's strike partner, as 94 goals in 144 games for the Shaymen handed him his big move to the Football League.

The striker joined Millwall in the summer of 2014, and after nine goals in the Championship last season, Gregory has been one of the most deadly strikers in the Football League.

Gregory has smashed 26 goals for the Lions this season, and his goal in the play-offs against Bradford City on Sunday has Millwall one step away from the play-off final.

If they don't return to the Championship, it will be hard to keep hold of Gregory, and it's claimed that Millwall have slapped a £2m asking price on Gregory to fend off Sheffield Wednesday, who want to bring him back to his hometown this summer.
