Nottingham Forest are eyeing a January move for Huddersfield Town star Josh Koroma, according to Football Insights on Twitter.

The Reds are busy trying to bolster their attacking options ahead of the transfer window closing.

Jed Wallace of Millwall and Blackpool star Josh Bowler have been heavily linked to Forest since the window opened.

Now, it would seem that Koroma is on the radar ahead of the transfer window closing later this month.

The former Rotherham United star has been in and out of the team under Carlos Corberan.

He scored eight goals and claimed two assists during 2020/21 and has claimed three goals and two assists this season.

Just 15 of his 25 league appearances have come in the way of starts this season though.

He was introduced as a substitute during Huddersfield’s 1-0 win over Forest last month, playing the final 22 minutes.

Koroma has made 58 appearances for the Terriers in total. scoring 11 goals and registering four assists.

Recently, the versatile forward has thanked Corberan for sticking with him despite a tough run of form.

He told the Huddersfield Examiner: “I’ll be the first one to say I wasn’t playing well but Carlos was fantastic with me. That was reassuring that he still has trust in me and hopefully I can’t start repaying him.”

Contingency: Forest prepare for Wallace setback with Koroma pursuit

It does seem as though the Reds would prefer to sign Wallace this month. He and Bowler do seem to be high on Steve Cooper’s list of targets.

If neither of those come to fruition, however, Forest will need a backup option in mind.

Of course, the fact this link has emerged from Football Insights perhaps means it needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.

That said, they have got several deals right already during the current transfer window.

Koroma would be a decent addition to the Forest ranks, with Huddersfield wanting to recoup around £2 million.

At 23-years-old he fits the criteria of what Dane Murphy and Cooper typically look to sign and he does tick a lot of boxes.
