Nottingham Forest are monitoring MK Dons playmaker Scott Twine, according to Nottinghamshire Live.

The 22-year-old is enjoying a blistering campaign in League One. He has scored 11 goals and registered a third-tier best, eight assists.

Now, he is being watched by several Championship clubs during the January transfer window, with Forest in the mix to sign him.

Twine signed for MK Dons in the summer. He left Swindon on a free transfer to pen a contract with the League One outfit and he’s grown as a player.

The 22-year-old has typically operated as an attacking midfielder in the number 10 role during 2021/22. He’s also played out wide and through the middle as a centre forward.

Forest are working towards lowering the average age of their squad. Steve Cooper has a proud history of working with younger players and CEO Dane Murphy shares such a desire.

Attackers are very much the order of the day for Forest. Alex Mighten and Joe Lolley are currently injured, leaving Philip Zinckernagel and Brennan Johnson as the only real options to operate behind Lewis Grabban.

It seems as though this signing would be a popular one. The youngster is a highly rated player and Forest fans would love to see more League One gems poached.

Twine would be a useful addition to the ranks. Especially considering Zinckernagel is only on loan and Johnson could be sold at some point in the future.

There is a sense that this could be more of a signing to do in the summer. Despite that, some Forest fans are keen to see him added to the Forest ranks at some point in the near future.
