AFC Bournemouth are also interested in signing Manchester City winger Morgan Rogers, according to Alan Nixon.
Rogers was spotted at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon following Bournemouth’s 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest.
This came a fortnight on from The Athletic’s report detailing Forest’s interest in taking him on loan from City for the season.

Nixon adds that a decision regarding a loan move is set to be made shortly, with Forest and Bournemouth both in the queue for the 19-year-old.
Rogers spent the second half of last season on loan in League One with Lincoln City, helping the Imps reach the play-off final.
The winger scored six goals and added four assists in a total of 28 appearances for Michael Appleton’s side across all competitions.
This is an interesting update and it’s particularly interesting given that Rogers was at the Forest vs Bournemouth game at the weekend.
Many assumed that it was because Forest were closing in on a deal, but maybe Bournemouth’s emerging interest in the player could have had something to do with it.
He’d be a great signing for them, and they could definitely do with some more depth given that Arnaut Danjuma is attracting plenty of interest.
Rogers is young, fast and powerful and would be a top loan signing for the Cherries, as he looks to continue his development away from City.
