Millwall are interested in signing Ipswich Town keeper Bartosz Bialkowski, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Lions have seen three keepers depart this summer - David Martin has moved to West Ham, Ben Amos' loan from Bolton has expired and Jordan Archer has left at the end of his contract.
One-cap Poland international Bialkowski is one of the Town's highest earners having signed a bumper new three-year deal last summer.
It's understood that the Blues would listen to offers for their former three-times Player of the Year following relegation to League One and that the 31-year-old, while happy in Suffolk, is keen to play football at the highest possible level.
Manager Paul Lambert has insisted no-one will leave Portman Road 'on the cheap' this summer. Town turned down a bid of £3m from Birmingham City for Bialkowski last summer and must now decide what their valuation is.
The Blues have released Dean Gerken and signed two keepers already this summer in the form of Tomas Holy (Gillingham, free) and Adam Przybek (West Brom, free).
The latter has been recruited for the U23s, potentially freeing up Harry Wright for a loan departure, and it's understood that the Blues would move for another keeper - Bolton's Remi Matthews a prime target - should Bialkowski move on.
Birmingham are understood to retain an interest in Bialkowski and could have funds to play with if Che Adams and Jota are sold this summer.
