Nottingham Forest are looking at the possibility of signing Plymouth Argyle striker Luke Jephcott, according to The Athletic.

The 20-year-old has really started to make a name for himself under Ryan Lowe in League One this season.

Jephcott has fired 14 goals in 21 appearances and has also earned three caps for the Wales under-21 team.

The lively talisman has scored five goals in his last five appearances and has been one of the standout Football League performers this season.

Jephcott spent the first half of last season on loan at Truro City, scoring five goals in 18 appearances for the non-league outfit.

He returned to Argyle for the second half of the campaign and shone, scoring seven goals in 14 outings.

This season he has really kicked on and will undoubtedly have plenty of interest from clubs in the Championship.

Interestingly, he has found himself part of a team that includes a Forest youngster this season.


Tyrese Fornah is on loan at Home Park and he will know all about the quality which Jephcott possesses.

Would Jephcott be a strong Forest addition?

He’d certainly be an exciting one, that’s for sure.

At 21 he has been a revelation in League One this season and looks destined to play at a higher level.

This link perhaps highlights where Gary Brazil is having a say in his new recruitment-based role at the football club.

He is clearly keeping tabs on some of the Football League’s top talents and that could bode well for Forest.

Right now, Chris Hughton has Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor in his attacking ranks.

Both players are over 30 and there will come a point where Forest have to look towards a younger option in attack.

Jephcott looks like a future Wales player in the making and as he bags goals for fun, it would make perfect sense for Forest to pounce.
