Nottingham Forest forward Miguel Ángel Guerrero could be set to make a move away from the City Ground in January with Greek side Aris Thessaloniki being linked with a move for the 30-year-old.
Guerrero only arrived at Nottingham Forest in the summer transfer window from Olympiacos, and that saw him boost the Reds’ options up front alongside the addition of Lyle Taylor.
However, the striker has been a bit-part player at the City Ground so far this campaign and has only managed to make four starts and nine appearances in total in the Championship (Sofascore).
Chris Hughton, since taking over from Sabri Lamouchi, has looked to give the 30-year-old a couple of chances to impress, but the forward has so far failed to register a single goal or assist for Nottingham Forest and has averaged just 0.7 shots per game (Sofascore).
Guerrero has not featured in either of the last two games against Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall having been left on the bench.

Guerrero’s addition always felt a little bit surprising given that the Reds already had Grabban and Taylor on their books and at the time had Sabri Lamouchi in charge who was very much keen to stick to his one upfront system. That meant that the 30-year-old was always going to face a difficult task of getting into the starting line-up.
The forward’s addition is one of many the Reds have made from Greece over the last few years, with some of those having failed to work out and seeing the players signed swiftly leave the club almost as quickly as they had joined. It looks like Guerrero could be the latest player to follow on from that pattern now.
Hughton has tried to give the 30-year-old chances to earn a place in his starting line-up, but despite a couple of glimpses of talent, there has been little on display to show that he could become a key figure at the City Ground. Allowing him to leave might free up space in the squad to add more needed quality in January.
