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.
