Chris Hughton's Nottingham Forest need a new striker in the Championship but will Dinamo Zagreb striker Sandro Kulenovic end up at the City Ground? Sandro Kulenovic has turned down a move to Nottingham Forest , although the Championship giants are not yet accepting defeat in their pursuit of the highly- rated Dinamo Zagreb striker, as reported by Sportske Novosti.

Nottingham Forest are expected to offer 20-year-old Brennan Johnson a new contract to ward off interest from elsewhere, according to The Athletic.

Johnson lit up League One while on loan with Lincoln City last term and impressed for Chris Hughton’s side in their pre-season game against Crewe on the weekend.

The teenager’s impressive performances over the past 12 months have drawn links away with Barnsley, Brentford, Leeds United, and Leicester City all said to be keen.

The Bees are thought to be leading the charge, with reports yesterday indicating they’re set to make a fresh bid as their interest intensifies.

Jack Robinson is set to leave Sabri Lamouchi’s Forest after just 16 Championship starts with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United set to complete a deal. Nottingham Forest have given Jack Robinson permission to secure a move to Sheffield United, according to The Star. Robinson might have started 16 Championship matches since joining Sabri Lamouchi’s side in June but the former QPR man is now set to bid a premature farewell to the two-time European champions, having been left out of the matchday squad for both of Forest ’s last two games.

The owner of Nottingham Forest has demanded they reach the Premier League . Greek chief Evangelos Marinakis made a surprise visit to the club last week. Forest are not slouching, they have only lost one of their last nine league games and would have won here, possibly, but for Kemar Roofe's handball goal in the 82nd minute - but the table shows them seventh and next up are leaders Sheffield United at the City Ground. Going to Elland Road and resisting Leeds for so long reveals both organisation and commitment; necessary qualities.

It seems as though Forest are determined to keep hold of their highly-rated academy talent, however, as The Athletic has indicated they’re expected to offer him a new contract.

Johnson starred for Lincoln last season – scoring 13 goals and adding 14 assists as Michael Appleton’s side shocked many by making it to the League One play-off final.

Now back in the Reds ranks, Hughton has revealed he sees the 20-year-old as primarily a number 10 but someone that can play a range of offensive roles.

The Verdict

The City Ground faithful will no doubt love to hear that Forest are set to take action in order to ward off interest in Johnson.

He was brilliant for the Imps last season and is surely one of the players that Reds supporters are most excited about for the 2021/22 campaign.

Offering him new terms should boost their chances of keeping hold of him but should an offer near the £10 million they’re said to value him at be made then they could face a very interesting decision.
