League One rivals Gillingham in hunt for Millwall's Marquis

GILLINGHAM have reportedly offered Millwall striker John Marquis a two-year deal.

The 23-year-old signed on loan for the Gills last January and went on to score eight goals in 18 starts for Justin Edinburgh’s side.

The former Tottenham Hotspur defender guided the club to 12th place in Sky Bet League One last season, just seven points off a playoff spot.

Marquis has been offered a new contract by Millwall boss Neil Harris and must now weigh up both offers.

The Lions are also in the hunt for a new striker after struggling in front of goal last season.

Marquis joined the club in 2009 and has scored six goals in 22 starts.

    I can't say I'm too bothered either way. O'Brien, IMO, is a much better prospect and given time, I believe he could play at a higher level, hopefully with us. I have never seen anything in Marquis that makes me believe he is anything other than a L1 player. He's not quick, he's not that strong and he's not exceptional technically. He had a good time playing for gillingham and I'm pleased for him; he found his level. I know that is now our level, but if we are serious about promotion, but I would hope for someone who has the promise to perform at a higher level.

    Depends whether you think our current forwards need any competition or not.
    Personally I do, there's nothing like a hungry striker breathing down your neck for your place.
    Let's see who he chooses.
