Millwall are discussing a last-minute swoop to sign West Brom striker Kenneth Zohore, according to Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath.
Zohore, 26, has struggled for game-time since the Baggies signed him for £8million from Cardiff last summer with him starting just five Championship matches last season.
The Danish striker has since failed to make a single matchday appearance for Albion since they won promotion to the Premier League and it seems likely that he will head out of The Hawthorns before the EFL transfer deadline passes at 5pm today (Friday).
McGrath reported via his personal Twitter account on Friday morning that a “late deal” is being negotiated between West Brom and Championship side Millwall

At one stage, it did look as though Zohore would be joining Sheffield Wednesday before the transfer deadline passes with the Express & Star claiming that the Owls were in advanced talks to land the ex-Copenhagen striker.
However, the Daily Mail added that a deal for Zohore to move to Hillsborough was effectively dead in the water, which has led to Millwall drumming up their interest in an eleventh-hour move.
Millwall have had an average start to the Championship season by winning one, drawing two and losing one of their four opening matches.
They have managed to score just three goals in those games so it seems they have prioritised a move for a new centre-forward before the transfer window closes.
Zohore didn’t get the goals he was expected to at The Hawthorns last season as he scored just three times in 17 Championship appearances.
However, a move to a team where he’s likely to get more game-time and play more of an important role is likely to be a good transfer for the striker.
In other West Brom news, this Baggies star is open to a move to MLS in January.
