MILLWALL are among a host of clubs who are chasing FC Halifax Town goal machine Lee Gregory.
Gregory is the Conference Premier’s joint top leading scorer with Luton’s Andre Gray after scoring 27 goals so far this season.
Lions boss Ian Holloway looks set to clear out his goal shy attack at the end of the season with relegation to League One looming.
And 25-year-old Gregory, who has scored seven goals in his last five games, is one of the players he is interested in.
Holloway had a scout check out Gregory during play-off chasing Halifax’s goalless draw with Braintree on Thursday.
Sheffield United academy product Gregory supplements his living as a footballer by working as an electrician.
He is now likely to find himself on the move having only one-year left on his current contract.
Gregory started his career with Staveley Miners Welfare and Mansfield before arriving at the Shay in 2011.
He has finished leading scorer in his two seasons at the club and is on target to do it for the third time.
The livewire striker was also watched by Blackburn, Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley.
The Lions believe Gregory could have the same type of impact as Steve Morison when they signed him from then non-league Stevenage in 2009. AC MILAN are willing to pay £3m to make Adel Taarabt’s loan move from QPR permanent.
The Moroccan is keen to stay in Italy and Milan are hoping to secure him at a cut price deal. BRIGHTON are bracing themselves for a summer raid on highly-rated winger Will Buckley.
Bitter rivals Crystal Palace are ready to lead the bidding at the end of the season.
The Seagulls were able to fend off bids from Sunderland for Buckley during the January transfer window.
But their former manager Gus Poyet will be back again for a player Albion rate at around £3m.
Albion do not have to sell players but a substantial offer could be hard for them to turn downwith both Palace and Sunderland keen on securing his services.
Brighton fans will find it hard to take losing Buckley to one of their most hated rivals. And despite selling Bridcutt to the Black Cats the manner in which Poyet left the Amex last summer is still a sore point.
