Forest boss Dougie Freedman is considering signing ex-Crystal Palace and Bolton forward Andre Moritz, according to the Nottingham Post.
Freedman, who managed the 29-year old at both of his former English clubs is looking to bring Moritz to the country for the third time in his career, and in time for this weekend’s tie against Ipswich Town.
Whilst he doesn’t currently have a team, the Brazilian has had a long career all around the world. Starting in his home country, he played 135 times for Internacional, Fluminense, Kasimpasa, Kayserispor and Mersin combined, netting 30 goals.
After an unsuccessful trial at Rangers, Moritz went to Palace, where he scored five in 27 games, followed by a season at Bolton, scoring seven in 23.
Next on his list after England was India, where he played for Mumbai in the first edition of the Indian Super League, and most recently was on the books of Thai club Buriram United.
At 29-years old, Moritz will definitely not want to call this the end of his career, and a move to Forest could extend this somewhat.
Forest are currently extremely short of attacking options, with Jamie Ward, Oliver Burke, Andy Reid, Henri Lansbury, Matty Fryatt and Britt Assombalonga all out of action.
They also are under a transfer embargo, so they won’t be able to sign any players in the Summer for a fee. Moritz could fit the bill in terms of short term relief and being able to stick around until their embargo is over.
Forest haven’t scored enough goals this season, with 32 in their 33 games translating to 15th position and 42 points following their 2-1 defeat to Bristol City at the weekend.
