Nottingham Forest would be interested in signing Sheffield United striker Rhian Brewster in January if he doesn’t enjoy more success at Bramall Lane.

That’s according to The Sunday Mirror (24/10, p64), who claim that Forest would be expected to make a move in January.

Boss Steve Cooper is allegedly keen on a loan move to sign Brewster, which is no great shock.

Cooper coached Brewster in the England setup before then signing him on loan for Swansea City in 2020.

The 21-year-old hit 11 goals in 22 appearances under Cooper, firing Swansea into the playoffs.

That earned Brewster a huge £23.5million move to Sheffield United, where many expected Brewster to carry on scoring.

In 38 appearances for the Blades, Brewster has managed just one goal. He still hasn’t scored a league goal and has started just three league games this season.

Brewster needs to get his career back on track somehow, and a loan move away from Sheffield United may be needed.

Forest would seemingly be willing to step in, with Cooper keen on a reunion.

Cooper has seen Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor find the net regularly in recent games, so a striker may not be top priority at the City Ground.

Cooper knows Brewster well though, and if the opportunity for a reunion presents itself, Forest could strike.
