AFC Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban could be set to make a permanent move away from the south coast.
Since his return to the Cherries in January 2016 for a reported fee of £7million from Norwich City, Grabban has made 79 appearances scoring 24 goals.
However only 22 of those appearances and just 1 goal have come whilst playing for AFC Bournemouth, instead, he has enjoyed loan spells at Reading, Sunderland and Aston Villa.
Two of those loan spells ended with unsuccessful Championship Play-Off appearances, as Grabban continues to be a regular goalscorer in the second tier of English football and that record, according to the Nottingham Post has made Grabban, Nottingham Forest’s number one summer transfer target.
The local newspaper has suggested that…
Bournemouth frontman Grabban is understood to be the man at the top of Forest’s list of targets, with the Cherries keen to offload the player they allowed to join firstly Sunderland and then Aston Villa on loan last season – for the right price.
There is no mention of what that price could be for the 30-year-old, but he remains their preferred choice ahead of Norwich City and Portugal international Nelson Oliveira and Middlesbrough’s Patrick Bamford.
Lots of talk so far about potential incomings.
However, seems there should probably be a few exits as well.
If they’re not going to play for us again: Gradel and Grabban.
Plus, maybe some former AFCB greats who don’t want to live out their contracts on the bench.
Seems we could bring in 20-30 million easy.
