Nottingham Forest have seen two bids rejected by Millwall for winger Jed Wallace. London News Online claims that the Lions have called both bids made by the Reds derisory.

The 27-year-old is out of contract during the summer. Istanbul-based club Besiktas have offered him a pre-contract but Wallace is yet to accept that offer.

Now, the door has opened for Forest and they may return with another bid. Clearly, Steve Cooper is keen to sign the Millwall man as he bids to bolster his attack.

Forest are seeking attacking recruits this month. Keinan Davis has already signed, but Alex Mighten and Joe Lolley are injured, leaving the squad short.

A bid for Blackpool star Josh Bowler was rejected last week. Now, it would seem the Reds have switched their focus to Millwall man Wallace instead.

The Reds will have to up the ante though. Besiktas are likely to have offered a lucrative package and perhaps his heart will be set on that move.

Forest are likely to return though. The club seems undeterred in their efforts to land their top targets this month and Wallace is a wanted man.

The versatile forward is a proven Championship performer. He has scored 41 goals and claimed 43 assists for the Lions in 243 appearances at the New Den.

Forest should pull out the stops for Wallace

Big money signings are unlikely to come unless Forest make a sale. Brennan Johnson and Joe Worrall have both been linked with Premier League transfers previously.

Wallace’s contract situation could make him affordable though. Right now, Forest are way off but they could get serious in the near future.

The Millwall man is currently out injured until the middle of January. As a result, the Reds don’t need to rush themselves with this one.

Wallace would be a statement signing. At 27 he’s at the peak of his powers and Forest should get this deal done before the window slams shut.
