Nottingham Forest have made a ‘strong move’ in their attempts to sign Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray, according to The Sun, as reported in the Nottingham Post

Premier League outfit Brighton & Hove Albion look set to allow the 36-year-old to leave this month. The experienced striker has struggled to get as much first-team action under the management of Graham Potter.

Sabri Lamouchi has made it clear that he’s looking to strengthen his attacking options. He has had to rely on Lewis Grabban to supply the goals so far this season in the Championship.

The Reds have already been linked with a host of strikers so far this month. The likes of Billy Sharp, Eddie Nketiah and Dwight Gayle have all been linked with a move to the City Ground.

According to The Sun though, it is Murray who seems to be closest to making a move to Nottingham out of all the strikers who have been linked so far.

It is no surprise that the Reds are interested in the 36-year-old. His record in the Championship certainly isn’t something to be sniffed at. He has scored 64 goals in 143 appearances in the second tier.

The Reds are currently sat fourth in the Championship, just nine points off Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion. They have the opportunity to consolidate their place in the play-offs against Reading on Saturday.

Lamouchi will be hoping that reinforcements in January can help the Reds push on. It’s imperative that they sign another striker to take the pressure of Grabban.
