Nottingham Forest were previously linked with a move for Plymouth Argyle forward Luke Jephcott during the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.
The young Welshman was in hugely impressive form in the first-half of the 2020/21 season with Argyle, as they adjusted to life in the third-tier of English football.
Jephcott’s strong performances in League One evidently didn’t go unnoticed though, as he was linked with a move to the likes of Nottingham Forest and Derby County.
But for one reason or another, a move failed to materialise in January’s transfer window, which will have been pleasing to see for the Plymouth Argyle supporters.
Jepchott’s form since a move failed to materialise to a Championship club has dipped, with the forward finishing on 18 goals from his 46 appearances in all competitions this term.
He failed to score in any matches since February 6th 2021, which doesn’t make for the best of reading for a striker that started the season so brightly.
But it’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for the 21-year-old heading into the summer transfer window, as he only has one more year remaining on his contract.
Which eight players never scored a goal for Plymouth Argyle?
That will leave Ryan Lowe’s side with a tough decision to make on Jephcott’s future, as you would imagine that they won’t want to be losing him for nothing at the end of the 2021/22 season.
Lancashire Live had previously revealed that Jephcott would cost any interested parties £5million, although it remains to be seen as to whether Plymouth’s financial demands have changed heading into the summer.
There haven’t been any fresh developments on his future in recent weeks, but Plymouth Live have recently revealed that one of Lowe’s transfer priorities this summer could be to add a ‘number nine’ to their attacking options ahead of the upcoming league campaign.
That could pave the way for Jephcott to depart in the summer, although that’ll depend on whether interested parties are to reignite their interest in landing his signature.
Nottingham Forest finished this year’s league campaign sat 17th in the Championship table, and nine points clear of the relegation zone, in what was a season to forget for Chris Hughton’s side.
The Forest boss will be looking to add to his squad ahead of the new league campaign, as they target a top-half finish in the second-tier.
