Nottingham Forest performer Lyle Taylor is starting to attract interest from the Football League and the MLS.

According to Football League World, the striker is wanted by a number of clubs when the transfer window reopens.

The report claims that Luton, Birmingham and Millwall are all interested, with a number of options emerging from the USA.

Taylor was on the bench for Forest during the first two Premier League games during the 2022/23 campaign.

The 32-year-old signed for the club on a free transfer in 2020, with Sabri Lamouchi taking him from Charlton.

During 2019/20, Taylor scored for the Addicks in both games against Forest and clearly, he caught the eye.

Ultimately, his time at the City Ground has proved a frustrating one and a departure looks likely.

Taylor has found the net just eight times for the Reds during his time on Trentside.

He last scored for the club around a year ago when Forest scored twice in injury time to beat Bristol City.

During the second half of 2021/22, he headed to Birmingham City on loan.

During his time with the Blues, he became a fan favourite and found the bet on five occasions.

It’s claimed that Taylor is keen to play regular football and Steve Cooper won’t stand in his way.

Any option that Taylor has in January has to be worth considering.

He’s not been included in the 25-man squad named by Forest and his prospects of regular action are bleak.

Taylor has been a likeable character in the dressing room.

Ultimately, however, when he has been called upon on the pitch he’s failed to really showcase a consistent streak.

Heading to the Championship would definitely be a positive step.

Plenty of clubs in the second tier would likely welcome the chance to have Taylor in their ranks.

The writing looks on the wall for Taylor at Forest and it will be interesting to see where he now ends up.
