Nottingham Forest manager Sabri Lamouchi has suggested that the Reds could be open to the possibility of recalling Tyler Walker from his loan spell at Lincoln City.
Forest have been searching for another forward this month, as they look to provide some more support to top scorer Lewis Grabban up front, with the Reds allowing Rafa Mir to return to Wolves after the striker failed to score a single goal during a disappointing loan spell at the City Ground.
The Reds are yet to land a new striker this month but in Walker, they have an in-form striker they can bring back into the fold, with the forward having fired in 14 goals in League One for Lincoln so far this campaign.

Speaking to the media ahead of Forest’s clash with Luton Town on Sunday, Lamouchi suggested that he is not ruling out the possibility of recalling Walker before the end of the month.
He said: “Yes, of course. Because I know him.
“He was in pre-season with us and he’s doing very at Lincoln, scoring a lot of goals. It can be an option, yes, of course.”
Walker has certainly been in impressive form for Lincoln so far this campaign, and the forward will have reminded Lamouchi of his potential to make a difference for the Reds with his performances in League One.
The Reds are in desperate need of adding another attacking option this month, as an injury to Grabban would leave them very light on forward options. If their attempts to bring someone else in fail this month then recalling Walker is a very good alternative.
Forest, though, could be reluctant to end the striker’s loan spell at Lincoln considering he has been flourishing with regular game time at Sincill Bank, but they might be left with little option if they are unable to replace Mir this month.
