Nottingham Forest could be in line to make a January move for Young Boys striker Guillaume Hoarau, according to Nau.ch.
Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi has set his sights on a promotion to the Premier League this season and his side comfortably at present in the play-off places.
With a game in hand over the top six sides in the Championship table, Forest can further enhance their league standing.
With the January transfer window fast approaching, it is understood that Forest could look to bring a new front-man, having seen the likes of Rafa Mir fail to establish himself at the club.
Lewis Grabban is performing to a high standard at the City Ground of late, but their are limited options as back-up to the former Aston Villa man.
One player that has emerged as a potential target for Forest is former PSG striker Hoarau, who has been playing for Swiss side Young Boys this term.
The 35-year-old finished as top scorer in the Swiss top-flight last season and he helped them win back-to-back titles.
Having scored 11 goals this term, Hoarau could prove to be a good asset for Forest and the interest has been confirmed by the former France international’s advisor, Michel Urscheler.
Hoarau signed for Young Boys in 2014, having previously played for French sides Bordeaux, Paris Saint-Germain, Gueugnon and Le Havre, as well as Dalian Aerbin in China.

Hoarau is quality, and he has proven that over the years, but injury problems this term could be a concern for Forest, who would ideally like to sign a player who could play a large part in the promotion chase.
Forest have a number of striker options on their shortlist and it is expected that they will go for Newcastle United’s Dwight Gayle first.
