Millwall are close to bringing the League Two top scorer to The Den this summer for added firepower.

It's now less than five weeks until the return of the Championship and second division clubs are starting to press forward with transfer business.

Exciting news came from Millwall over the weekend with the potential return of a former loanee to the club following his Premier League release.

That's not the only Lions news and the club feature alongside Watford and Leeds United in your Monday transfer round-up.

Millwall target completes medical

Millwall are set for a summer splurge on Notts County striker Macauly Langstaff to add firepower to Neil Harris' side ahead of the upcoming Championship campaign.

Transfer specialist Pete O'Rourke reports that the Lions will cough up a six-figure fee for the player, who bagged 28 goals in League Two last season, winning the Golden Boot award in the process. The transfer is expected to cost the London club £700,000.

Langstaff underwent a medical at Millwall on Saturday and the 27-year-old represents a major coup for the Championship outfit with the player having attracted several suitors after last season's exploits.

The Notts County man had previously admitted that it would be hard to prize him away from the League Two club. He said in May: "I came here with the intention of getting the club back to the Football League, but once we got promoted my intention was to get the club to League One. I have three years left here and it would take something incredible [to leave]."

Arsenal and Everton linked with Watford talent

Watford forward Yaser Asprilla has been the centre of some sensational transfer rumours this summer having turned in an impressive season for the Hornets last season.

The 20-year-old had been linked with a stunning £43 million move to Catalan giants Barcelona earlier this year but those links have since calmed down. Over the weekend, it was reported that Arsenal and Everton were looking at a £15 million swoop for the player, who is currently impressing at the Copa America.

However, since then, Sky Sports reporter Alan Myers has responded to a question online, saying that he had 'not heard anything' concrete about Toffees interest in the player. The Merseyside club have already brought in Jack Harrison and Iliman Ndiaye this summer.

Leeds United dealt £3.5m blow

Leeds United are known to be in the market for a new winger this summer with Jaidon Anthony returning to Bournemouth and Ian Poveda leaving the club as a free agent, while Crysencio Summerville and Willy Gnonto are also linked with moves away.

The Whites had been linked with Moroccan star Couhaib Driouech as a potential incoming in that role but have now been dealt a blow in that pursuit with the £3.5 million rated winger completing a move to PSV.

The 22-year-old has completed the switch from Excelsior Rotterdam and will be able to play Champions League football as PSV. The versatile winger bagged eight goals and eight assists across 33 appearances in all competitions last season.
