Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma has spoken with Nottingham Forest over a January move, according to the Daily Mail. The 25-year-old is set to leave the La Liga side this month, with Everton and Bournemouth also holding talks with the player.

Danjuma is likely to move out on loan this month. He flew over to England over the weekend and has been holding discussions with several interested parties.

Forest are definitely going to pursue another forward or two this month. Although several players were signed in the summer, the Reds have an injury crisis; whilst Steve Cooper will look to get some players out of the door too.

Danjuma has been out of favour somewhat this season. He’s made 17 appearances for the club this season, scoring six goals but he’s found himself on the bench quite often.

Forest would welcome a player with his qualities. He is quick, loves to take players on and perhaps more crucially, he can play anywhere across the front three.

Danjuma has played in England previously with Bournemouth where he excelled. He scored 17 goals for the club in his 52 appearances before being sold to Villarreal for £21.3 million.

This would certainly be an intriguing move for Forest. Danjuma has played really well during his time at Villarreal and last season he helped the club reach the semi-final of the Champions League.

Forest definitely need some more forward options. Brennan Johnson, Morgan Gibbs-White and Gustavo Scarpa started on Saturday but more in reserve is needed.

Emmanuel Dennis doesn’t seem overly fancied, whilst Sam Surridge hasn’t scored in the Premier League yet this season. Furthermore, Jesse Lingard is currently injured.

Danjuma has spoken with the club, but he might be holding out for another move. In the next week or two, things could become clearer but Forest could certainly do a lot worse.
