Nottingham Forest are in the race to sign Norwich City striker Adam Idah, according to The Sun.

The Reds will be in the market for a striker when the January transfer window and Idah has played for just 72 minutes this season.

Norwich boss Dean Smith will have his sights on some signings of his own and that could spell curtains for Idah.

Forest have Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor as their striker options right now and a younger model is likely to be sought.

Idah has risen through the Norwich youth ranks and could now be available to leave Carrow Road during the January transfer window.

He is only 20 and had a bright career ahead of him in the professional game. In 44 appearances for the Canaries, he has fired six goals but has found first-team football hard to come by.

Idah is a Republic of Ireland international and has collected 11 caps for his country but is waiting for his first goal.

The youngster is at a bit of a crossroads in his career and he desperately needs to kick on.

Not playing football at Norwich isn’t serving him particularly well and a loan move looks like the ideal option moving forward.

Norwich hero Chris Sutton has previous praised Idah. He called him a ‘real handful’ back in July 2020 following a City appearance.

Exciting: Idah looks the perfect addition for Forest under Cooper

The young Norwich man has been a pretty decent player for the Canaries but regular football is a must.

Cooper has a proud record with younger players and Idah could be the next to benefit from the Forest boss’ influence.

Both Grabban and Taylor are capable of doing a job but ultimately a younger striker would be highly beneficial to the Forest squad.

Idah would have a point to prove and he could star at Forest under Cooper.
