The transfer window opens next month and one player who could be available to Nottingham Forest is Brazilian striker Lincoln.

The wonderkid is wanted by Championship outfit Huddersfield Town ahead of the January window opening.

The Daily Mail claims the 20-year-old could be available for transfer after his progress at Flamengo stagnated somewhat.

Lincoln was compared to Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski by Goal in 2019 and looks set for a bright future in the game.

The 20-year-old has been capped 11 times by Brazil at under-20 level and is attracting plenty of interest.

Lincoln’s game is about more than scoring goals and more recently he has found himself playing out wide on the left-hand side.

He has scored just six goals in 49 outings for Flamengo.

If Forest are going to continue pursuing the overseas transfer market, a player like Lincoln should be high on the list.

He is young, would have significant sell-on value and ultimately has bucket-loads of potential.

With Flamengo keen to cash in, Forest might need to act quickly to secure what could be an attractive addition.

Could Lincoln thrive in the Championship?

Given his abundance of talent, he could take it by storm.

The diminutive forward is quick, skillful and would come with an array of flicks and tricks.

Of course, as with any overseas recruit, there would be an element of intrigue and the proof would ultimately come in the way of performances.

Lincoln wouldn’t be a signing in it for the short-term though and he’d be capable of developing into a class act at the City Ground.

The Reds need to lower the average age of their squad and at 20, Lincoln could be an ideal signing.

Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor are both in their thirties and a younger option to compete with Will Swan would be ideal.

Chris Hughton might have plenty of targets in mind but it does seem clear that a striker wouldn’t go amiss at Forest.
