Nottingham Forest are one of several clubs running the rule over Brentford talisman Marcus Forss.

According to Football League World, Fulham, Sheffield United, Stoke and Middlesbrough are all keen on the Finland international.

Forss has found first-team football hard to come by this season. He has made just six appearances in the Premier League, with just one as a start.

As a result, boss Thomas Frank is considering letting him leave on loan when the transfer window reopens.

It seems as though the boss is a big fan of the youngster too.

Earlier in the season, Forss scored four times as the Bees thrashed Oldham 7-0 in the Carabao Cup.

After the contest, Frank ranked the Forest linked player out of 10.

He told BT Sport: “Marcus is doing all he can every day in training, and he’s a really good player.

“He scored four really good goals. I guess that needs to be a 10 out of 10.”

Despite impressing during that contest, he’s been unable to force his way into the Brentford reckoning on a regular basis.

He has often been used as a substitute in the closing stages of games and that won’t do for the 11-cap player.

Exciting: Forss could be decent Forest addition

As a Finland international, the youngster looks set for a bright future in the game.

The challenge for him is to prove to Brentford that he can do it on a regular basis.

CLAIM: Matt Mills makes an astonishing claim

Playing in the Championship is something he has done before and it could be a challenge he’d relish again.

Forest are in the hunt for a younger option alongside Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor, with Forss on the radar.

Forss could be ideal for the Reds and he could thrive under Steve Cooper.
