Nottingham Forest defender Djed Spence is attracting vast interest from all over Europe.

His performances this season have been truly outstanding and Middlesbrough seem certain to cash in on the right-back in the summer.

Spence has Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham courting his services domestically, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund providing attractive options abroad.

The 21-year-old is a grounded individual and even Boro supporters have been surprised at the rate he’s kicked on at Forest.

Spence is decent at both ends of the pitch but it’s his attacking qualities that have caught the eye.

It comes to little surprise that each club that fancy signing him typically deploy all-action wing-backs who simply love getting forward.

He has played 28 times for Forest this season and last week, some statistics from Who Scored highlighted exactly why clubs will compete for his services.

Spence was in fine form as the Reds beat Bristol City 2-0 at the City Ground.

The Forest player made seven crosses to highlight his willingness to get forward and assist with attacks.

His defending was pretty impeccable too as he made three tackles and two clearances to ensure a clean sheet for the Reds.

His performance, on the whole, was typically energetic and he claimed the Man of the Match award inside the stadium.

Stardom: Spence will go to the top after Forest spell

Forest will always have memories of Spence but they’ve got absolutely no chance of keeping him.

A quick look at his statistics from last week showcases exactly why top clubs are circling the London-born player.

He is willing to stick balls into the boxes, whilst he doesn’t do it at the expense of sacrificing his work defensively.

Spence has unbelievable energy and he works harder than the stereotypical loan player normally does.

The youngster will live long in the memory of Forest fans but there’s absolutely no chance of him being at the City Ground next season.
