Millwall and Watford have joined Portsmouth in a bid to sign Swansea City striker Jamal Lowe on a free transfer this summer.

This season, the striker is on loan in Wales from Bournemouth, and his contract with the Cherries expires in the summer.

According to TBR Football, the Lions and Hornets are two clubs interested in signing the midfielder, along with his old club Portsmouth, who have confirmed promotion to the Championship.

Lowe has nine goals in 34 Championship games this season for Swansea, but starting only 24 of them. The 29-year-old also scored three goals in 20 appearances on loan at QPR last season and seven for the Cherries in their 2021/22 Championship promotion quest. He has scored 39 Championship goals in 185 outings.

According to the latest reports, Ipswich Town, Norwich City, Middlesbrough, and Derby County are among the many clubs interested in signing the striker on a free transfer this summer.

Millwall could be looking for a striker, with Neil Harris admitting that he anticipates continuous transfer interest in talisman Zian Flemming, who has seven goals and five assists this season. Harris told the South London Press: “There was a lot of interest in Zian last summer, which was understandable given his season. He hasn’t quite reached such levels this year, but the team’s performance has been detrimental to several players.

“Zian is a top lad and a very, very good lad at the level. He is an unbelievably good professional. I’ve really enjoyed working with him so far and would love to carry on working with him.

“But I also understand that a lot happens at a football club over a period of time. As always with Millwall Football Club – I’m fully aware of it – we have sold players in my tenure, we have bought players and we have turned down bids for players.

“I’m sure Zian will be one that gains interest. As always, for me, I find it really simple. What is best for the player, for sure, what is best for the team but, ultimately, what is best for the football club. The football club comes first – it always has done and always will do.”
