Ipswich Town have today made an approach for Nottingham Forest winger Barrie McKay, according to Football Insider.
New Ipswich manager Paul Hurst is keen to add to some width and creativity to his squad and has identified McKay as someone who can offer that.
Forest only signed the 23-year-old from Rangers a year ago, and the winger got a respectable five goals and seven assists last season.
After Aitor Karanka took over as manager, however, McKay only made four appearances, so a move away was always likely this summer.
Under Karanka, the East Midlands club are eager to bring a host of exciting attacking talent for big money.
A move to Ipswich then could well appeal to the Scot as he searches for more first-team football.
This would be a very shrewd signing for Ipswich Town.
When he played last season McKay often impressed and at 23 he is only likely to improve.
With Forest keen to make space for their new signings, it is possible that they will be willing to offload McKay for a very reasonable price, despite his contract not running until 2021.
He is a player who Ipswich fans would love and would be a brilliant start to Paul Hurst’s business in East Anglia.
