Nottingham Forest fans will be shocked to learn that Rafa Mir is attracting top-level La Liga interest.

According to La Razon, the striker’s heroics at Huesca this season have alerted Sevilla towards his services.

Mir has found the net 13 times in 30 top-flight appearances during 2020/21, with Huesca able to buy the player for £10 million.

The 23-year-old is on loan in Spain and is likely to return to Wolves in the summer.

Huesca’s pending relegation makes it highly unlikely they will pay the required sum to sign him permanently.

That could open the door for Sevilla with the team chasing a Champions League place monitoring the striker.

Mir is in his second loan spell at Huesca. During the second half of 2019/20 he fired nine goals in 18 games to help the club win promotion.

Naturally they took him for a second stint and his form this season has continued despite the step up in class.

The uncompromising striker has made just four appearances for Wolves and it seems unlikely he’ll earn a Molineux reprieve.

His contract expires in 2022 and the summer will represent the final chance for Wolves to receive a decent sum of money.

Mir’s time at Forest proved nothing short of a disaster.

He was added to provide some backup for Lewis Grabban but never looked like offering the team much.

He registered two assists in 13 appearances but failed to make his mark on the score sheet during his time at the City Ground.

He was subsequently sent packing back to Wolves in January, with Forest deeming him surplus to requirements.

Mir taking La Liga by storm has been a big surprise and if Sevilla do sign him, Forest supporters will watch on with intrigue.
