Nottingham Forest are eyeing a raid on Inter Milan to sign Uruguayan wonderkid Martin Satriano.
According to freelance journalist Will Unwin, the striker is among the players being monitored by Forest ahead of January.
It is thought that the Reds wanted the 20-year-old during the summer but Inter chose to keep the player at the San Siro.
Satriano arrived in Italy from Nacional back in January 2020. He’s since made four appearances for the first team.
Forest will be desperately hoping to sign a younger striker during the window.
Lewis Grabban has 10 goals during 2021/22. Lyle Taylor, however, has scored just three and both players are in their thirties.
As a result, a little more energy is perhaps required; with Forest now keen to get things sorted in January.
Given a lack of game time, Inter are willing to let their player out on loan.
A deal until the end of the season would be on the cards should Forest look to do something and he could prove a decent addition.
Forest are in action tonight when they face Huddersfield at the City Ground.
After the game, attention will quickly turn to next year and how quickly Forest can do their business.
Exciting: Satriano could for coup for Forest
The Satriano link has been doing the rounds and already some predictable responses would rather the Reds target a proven Championship player.
That might not be possible though and the Reds will need to be savvy.

Dane Murphy is a shrewd operator in the transfer market and Satriano ticks all the boxes as one of his signings.
It wasn’t too long ago that a host of Premier League clubs wanted the youngster, with Football Italia previously backing him as the heir to Luis Suarez’s throne.
How serious the interest is from the Reds remains to be seen but Satriano could be an exciting addition to the Forest ranks.
