Nottingham Forest forward Miguel Angel Guerrero has emerged as a potential transfer target for Spanish side Espanyol according to journalist Victor Polo.
Guerrero has found regular game time tough to find since moving to the City Ground back in November 2020 from Greek side Olympiacos.
The forward has been restricted to just 11 appearances in all competitions this season, for a Forest team that have struggled to pick up points on a consistent basis.
Chris Hughton’s side are currently sat 21st in the Championship table, and are just three points clear of the relegation zone heading into their final 20 matches of this year’s campaign.
It seems as though Guerrero won’t have a role to play in that battle for survival in the second-tier though, with the 30-year-old being linked with a move to Espanyol.
Guerrero is no stranger to playing his football over in Spain, having previously played for the likes of Sporting Gijon, Albacete and Leganes earlier in his career.
Espanyol are currently sat second in the Segunda Division in Spain, and are clearly keen to bolster their attacking options before the transfer window reaches a conclusion.
Nottingham Forest are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they take on Coventry City, in what is likely to be a tough test for the Reds once again.

He’ll surely be tempted with a move elsewhere on Deadline Day.
Guerrero has struggled for game time since moving to Nottingham Forest, and I think he’d be better off heading to Espanyol in search of regular minutes.
He’s behind the likes of Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor in the pecking order in Chris Hughton’s plans at this moment in time, and would be making the right call in departing Nottingham Forest on a temporary basis.
If he can impress with Espanyol, then he could come back and challenge for a spot in the Nottingham Forest starting XI in future seasons.
