Sheffield United To Sign John Marquis?!

Doncaster Rovers striker John Marquis has found his goalscoring touch this season, and Sheffield United should look at making a move for him.

The 24-year old has been in red hot form for Doncaster and his first career hat-trick in the 5-1 drubbing of Grimsby Town has put them on the brink of promotion to League One at the first attempt.

His tally is now at 26 for the season and he has scored the same number of league goals in his 39 appearances this campaign than he has in his whole league career. Signed on a free transfer in the summer, Marquis has proved to be a shrewd piece of business by Rovers manager Darren Ferguson.

The Millwall academy graduate is starting to realise his potential since leaving The New Den. In his seven years at the club, Marquis was sent on loan to no less than seven clubs across the football league.

One of those clubs was Northampton Town in 2016 and they were managed by Blades boss Chris Wilder. He scored six goals in 15 appearances at the Sixfields and earned high praise from Wilder.

Just like Doncaster, Sheffield United are on their way to securing promotion this season as they sit top League One with six games left to play. Billy Sharp has been their talisman up front as he has 26 league goals to his name.

With 52 goals between the pair so far this season, a partnership between Sharp and Marquis could prove to be fruitful. The step-up to Championship football would be a challenge but both have experience in England’s second tier and the confidence will be high between the pair.

Marquis still has plenty of time to prove his capabilities in the Championship and will be keen to show Millwall what they are missing out on as they struggle to find their way out of League One.
