Plenty of Nottingham Forest fans have taken to social media to discuss whether the club should try to sign Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor this month.
Forest have made an encouraging start to the Championship season, but head coach Sabri Lamouchi is keen to sign a new striker this month to provide some backup for top scorer Lewis Grabban.
The Reds have been linked with various different strikers over the past few weeks, including Charlton ace Taylor, with TEAMtalk claiming last month that Forest are one of several championship sides keeping close tabs on the centre-forward.
The 29-year-old has scored 32 goals in 58 appearances for Charlton, but his contract at The Valley is due to expire at the end of the season, which has attracted attention from a number of rival clubs.
Charlton had offered Taylor a new deal, but according to the South London Press, the Addicks have now withdraw their contract offer and are prepared to consider any bids for their star striker in the transfer window.
The news has caused some Forest fans to on Facebook debate whether the club should try to sign Taylor to provide backup for Grabban, who has scored 14 goals for the Reds in the Championship this season.
