Nottingham Forest have three strikers on their shortlist ahead of the January transfer window – and their search is seemingly not just limited to England.
The Guardian’s Will Unwin believes that Brentford’s Marcus Forss is one player on that particular list – Football League World reported earlier this month that Forest were one club looking at the Finland international – who scored eight Championship goals for Brentford last season – on loan.
Forss is being looked at as well as Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos, who is a 20-year-old Portuguese forward.

Capped for his country at five different youth levels, Ramos has scored one league goal in 11 games for Benfica in the Liga NOS but could be set to head to England on a loan deal after starting just three times.
And he is joined by Inter Milan’s Martin Satriano, a 20-year-old Uruguayan who signed for the Nerazzurri in 2020.
Satriano has played four times for Inter in the Serie A this season but could be set to continue his development away from the San Siro and Forest are said to be keen.
It’s an interesting and diverse list for Forest to be potentially targeting but there’s not much experience between the trio.
Satriano for example only has four senior matches to his name and coming to England for half a season could be a big risk.
But Forest have signed players from all corners of the globe – Braian Ojeda recently arrived from Paraguay so their scouting network is expansive.
You’d imagine that Forss may be the most likely target but it will be exciting for Forest fans to see their club linked with so many names as the opening of the transfer window grows ever closer.
