Espanyol are keen to add Nottingham Forest forward Miguel Angel Guerrero to their ranks ahead of tonight’s deadline, reports claim.
The Barcelona-based outfit are currently second in the Segunda Division and are eyeing the Forest man to bolster their attacking arsenal.
Guerrero has played 11 times for the Reds this season, failing to register a goal contribution in a Forest shirt.
The 30-year-old has experience of playing in Spain having spent time with Sporting Gijon, Leganes and Albacete.
He hasn’t featured for 10 games in the Championship and wasn’t even on the bench as Forest drew 0-0 with Barnsley on Saturday.
Guerrero arrived from Olympiacos during the summer and has put in some decent performances.
He hasn’t really shown too many signs of improvement, however, and offloading him looks like a good option.
Forest are set to add Glenn Murray to their ranks today and that will see his chances of football become even less likely.
The Spaniard would surely welcome a return to his homeland and if the club can receive a small fee it becomes a no-brainer.
Can Forest cope with the loss of Guerrero?
A lack of game time has robbed him the chance to shine, although he’s shown very little in the games he has played.
Deployed as a No.10 typically he has proved hardworking but it hasn’t been enough.
He has been hesitant in possession, wasteful with his passing and has missed some golden chances to cost Forest points.
Guerrero has been another example of the scatter-gun approach to transfers at the City Ground.
Whilst Cafu has come in from Olympiacos and made an impact Guerrero has flattered to deceive during his time in England.
A return to Spain looks best for all parties and it’s surely a deal Forest will push to get done.
