Nottingham Forest are in the race to sign Norwich City striker Jordan Hugill, according to Football Insider. The lofty talisman signed for the Canaries during the summer transfer window last year.

Hugill was part of the Norwich team that romped to the Championship title last season. He scored five goals in 34 outings but was largely used as a substitute.

He started just seven times for the club and looks unlikely to earn a chance in the Premier League under Daniel Farke.

The uncompromising centre forward is a bit of a Championship stalwart. He has also played for Preston, Middlesbrough and QPR in the second tier.

Hugill will likely be sold or loaned out during this transfer window. Farke wants to reshape his squad and will want funds for reinforcements.

The 29-year-old did join West Ham in 2018 but made just three appearances before going out on loan and eventually being sold.

 

Forest boss Chris Hughton has made no secret of his desire to sign more attacking players. His current striker options are Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor.

Hugill would provide the Reds with a different option in attack and might prove to be a useful addition.

Both Taylor and Grabban are similar types of strikers and a different option would be most welcomed by Hughton.

Hugill didn’t score many goals last season but he does know where the back of the net is at Championship level.

The Reds will be desperate to bolster their squad and Hugill could be a useful addition. He is intelligent, strong in the air and ultimately is capable of scoring goals.

He typically brings others into play too and his physical presence could become a useful attribute to Forest next season.
