The Sun claim that Nottingham Forest linked Jed Wallace is growing frustrated at not being allowed to leave Millwall this month.
Forest have seen two bids for the 27-year-old rejected. Now, it would seem that the versatile attacker is getting frustrated with his current club.
Wallace has been at Millwall for five years. He’s been an instrumental figure for the Lions but is out of contract during the summer.
That leaves the Championship outfit in a difficult position. They won’t want to lose the player at an integral period of the season, but likewise, they face losing him for free.
Wallace is a proven Championship performer. As a result, he isn’t short of admirers this month.
Forest are linked along with Watford, Leeds and Middlesbrough – with Chris Wilder’s interest the freshest of all the links.
Steve Cooper is hoping to bolster his ranks further this month. Steve Cook, Keinan Davis and Richie Laryea have been added so far this month.
Another attacker will certainly be sought. Forest are short of options with Alex Mighten and Joe Lolley both out injured at the moment.
Wallace is capable of playing anywhere across the front three and Cooper would welcome such versatility.
Demand: Forest have to move with Wallace upping the ante
Wallace making noise is certainly telling. It would seem as though Millwall won’t want an unhappy player around the place and a move could now be imminent.
Forest have to now make a move. The Reds would dearly welcome Wallace to their ranks and would get themselves a proven second-tier performer.
Now, could be the perfect time to swoop. Middlesbrough and Leeds provide attractive options and Forest won’t want to miss out.
Forest clearly have the money to spend having already seen two bids rejected. The challenge is discovering what it will take for Millwall to do business.
This is certainly a major boost though and Forest must now do their best to get this deal over the line.
