Rangers-linked Millwall attacker Jed Wallace is pushing to leave The Den this month, according to The Sun.
27-year-old Wallace has had a decent season so far for the Lions, scoring five goals and notching six assists.
However, his contract is up at the end of the season and after four and a half years of service following two loan spells, he’s been heavily linked with a move.
Back in September, Football League World reported that Rangers were one of a number of clubs monitoring Wallace and later that month, the same outlet suggested that the Gers and rivals Celtic held an advantage over English clubs in the race to snap him up on a pre-contract.
Rangers-linked star wants to leave Millwall now
However, the talk in recent weeks has been more about a transfer happening in this window, with Millwall keen to at least receive some sort of fee for one of their star men.
Championship rivals Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough and even Turkish giants Besiktas have been credited with interest, and now The Sun reports that the player is ‘pushing hard’ to leave immediately.
The news comes after the Lions reportedly rejected several bids for Wallace from unnamed clubs and it’s said that he’s growing increasingly frustrated at the situation.
It’s asserted that while Wallace is yet to hand in a transfer request, he’s keen for a new challenge and ‘sources close to the player’ believe Millwall will eventually give in and sell him.
Now or never for Rangers if they want Wallace
We’ve seen already in this window with John Souttar’s pre-contract agreement that Rangers are keen to plan ahead for next season.
It seems that the initial plan with Wallace was to bring him in in the summer too, but it no longer looks like that’s an option.
If the Gers do genuinely like the versatile ex-Portsmouth and Wolves attacker, now is the time to put a bid on the table.
It’s likely to take a seven-figure fee to convince Millwall that it’s worth their while to cash in and there’s clearly plenty of competition for his signature.
But perhaps a move to Ibrox to compete for silverware is just the kind of challenge Wallace is after and the cash should be there to spend following the club-record sale of Nathan Patterson.
