Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo, according to a report by Goal.

The Reds are to be rivalled by Huddersfield Town and Reading for the winger who spent last season on loan at Rangers.

During 2019/20, the tricky wide player scored once and registered five assists for the Gers, playing in 36 games altogether.

The 23-year-old found first-team football hard to come by but Steven Gerrard raved about his potential. His comments will certainly interest Forest supporters given the latest link.

The Rangers boss told The Scottish Sun: “Sheyi has got all the attributes. He has got everything in the locker, he is quick, he is strong, he is powerful and he takes on information.”

Forest will perhaps be in the market for another winger this summer, with options limited out wide in Sabri Lamouchi’s squad.

Joe Lolley and Sammy Ameobi were the first-team regulars on the flanks but in reserve, they were occasionally lacking ideas.


Nuno Da Costa was utilised out wide after the restart, whilst Albert Adomah could also come back into the fold ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

Ojo would perhaps represent an interesting signing for Forest and there is clearly a lot of potential there.

The youngster has enjoyed loan spells at Wigan, Fulham, Stade Reims and Wolves as well as his Ibrox stint last season.

The report claims Liverpool will look to either offload Ojo on loan or permanently this summer and cites Forest as an interested party.

Forest would be wise to attract such players and the fact that the winger is still young only bodes well for the future.

He is bound to be deemed surplus to requirements at Liverpool and leaving looks like his only option with regards to playing regular football.

A wide player is a likely signing for the Reds this summer and if Lamouchi can get him firing, Forest could have a quality player on their hands for next season.
