Anderlecht winger Francis Amuzu is the latest name to be linked with a move to Nottingham Forest during the January transfer window.

According to Voetbal Primeur, the Reds are in the race to sign the youngster alongside Cologne, Mainz and AZ Alkmaar.

Olympiacos are also thought to be monitoring the situation.

The tricky winger has made 79 appearances for the Belgian giants, with Vincent Kompany handing him five starts this season.

He has scored five goals and registered seven assists in senior football and looks like a big prospect.

At 21 he has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular under Kompany’s watch, despite six goals and three assists last season.

Forest do have wide options at the club but another will perhaps be targeted during the January window.

Kompany has spoken about the talent recently and had some praise for him.

He told Voetbal Primeur: “I think Francis can teach our team a lot. I know there is no unanimity about the boy, but as a trainer, I will stay calm about that.

“Francis makes progress and always offers something. The competition will only make him better.”

Would Amuzu help Forest?

Possibly, but he shouldn’t be a priority.

Alex Mighten showcased his talents out wide on Tuesday night and Forest should perhaps invest in him a bit more.

The youngster dazzled the Sheffield Wednesday throughout the tie and looks like a real talent.

Amuzu possesses plenty of pace, an eye for goal and on the face of things, he looks set for a bright future.

Forest do have plenty of left-footed options though and any winger who comes into the club should bring the balance to offer a right-footed threat.
