Nottingham Forest are among a clutch of clubs interested in signing Brentford forward Marcus Forss during the January transfer window.

According to Football League World, Forest are in the race alongside Sheffield United, Fulham, Middlesbrough, Stoke and West Brom to sign the youngster.

Forss has interest from France and Germany too. The youngster will be allowed to leave the club on loan by Brentford during the window.

Thomas Frank is keen to see his young talisman gain experience in England though, opening the door for Championship sides to pounce.

The 22-year old has scored five goals in the Carabao Cup this season, including four in a 7-0 win over Oldham back in September.

Forss has played just 192 minutes in the Premier League. As a result, Brentford are keen for him to get some regular game time under his belt.

The Bees have no desire to offload him permanently but a loan move is on the cards.

Forest are in the market for a new striker in January with several names linked to the club already.

Arsenal talisman Folarin Balogun and Aston Villa man Keinan Davis are two names mentioned, with Forss now on the list.

Exciting: Forss could do a job for Forest

The youngster has 11-caps for Finland and he might prove a decent addition to the Reds’ ranks.

Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor are currently competing for the role of the primary striker and a younger talisman wouldn’t go amiss.

Forss made two appearances at Euro 2020 in games against Denmark and Estonia and he does have a bright future ahead of him.

The Bees player scored 10 goals last season as Brentford won promotion and the year previous he scored 11 in 19 for AFC Wimbledon.

Forss probably wouldn’t mind playing a backup role at Forest. As a result, he could be an ideal January signing for Steve Cooper.
