Nottingham Forest have identified Brentford forward Marcus Forss as a main signing during the January transfer window.

According to freelance journalist Will Unwin, Forest are considering the Bees performer alongside two overseas imports.

Forss has interest from France and Germany too. The youngster will, however, 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 and would welcome him going to the Championship.

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.

After that game, Frank called him ‘fantastic’ during his press conference.

Forss has played just 192 minutes in the Premier League. He was an unused substitute again last night as the Beeds lost 1-0 to Manchester City.

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

The Reds face Huddersfield tonight but plans are already well underway with regards to next month.

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, suggesting he has 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.

With Grabban and Taylor in their thirties, he should get plenty of game time at the City Ground.
