Nottingham Forest will face competition from Norwich City for the permanent signing of Aston Villa talent Keinan Davis, according to Football Insider.

Dean Smith is looking to bolster his squad and with relegation looking likely, he’s eyeing a reunion with the 24-year-old who he worked with at Villa Park.

Davis has been a revelation at Forest. He’s scored five goals in 19 appearances for the Reds, also helping himself to three assists in Steve Cooper’s team.

The talented performer has been a brilliant loan addition to the Forest ranks this season. As a result, Cooper will almost certainly try and sign him permanently in the summer.

It is thought that a bid in the region of £4 million with a string of add-ons would be accepted. Villa boss Steven Gerrard rates the striker but could offload him to raise funds for his own recruitment drive.

Norwich are the epitome of a yo-yo club and Smith will try and change that perception next season. The Canaries aren’t technically relegated yet but they will be.

Davis is a powerful striker and he won’t be short of suitors. Forest will hope that an enjoyable loan spell on Trentside can persuade him to stay at the club.

Norwich could have the edge over the Reds in the summer. They will have the luxury of being able to call on parachute payments and £4 million is a drop in the ocean to them.

Davis is a stunning performer at Championship level. His game is about far more than scoring goals and Forest desperately need to add him to their ranks.

The striker has been welcomed by the Forest faithful and he’s quickly become a fan favourite at the City Ground.

Davis is currently out for the remainder of the campaign but with Norwich in the mix, Forest have to start thrashing out a deal for the £25,000-a-week striker.
