Nottingham Forest defender Eric Lichaj is attracting attention from a quartet of Championship clubs this summer, according to The Nottingham Post.
Bolton Wanderers, Bristol City, Hull City and Queens Park Rangers are four clubs taking an interest in Lichaj, with some MLS clubs also keen to bring him back to the United States.
Lichaj has just one year left on his current contract at Nottingham Forest and he featured less frequently for Aitor Karanka’s team towards the end of the season.
His contract situation has alerted four clubs to the fact that he might be available for a cut-price transfer fee.
The 14-cap American international joined Forest in 2013 from Aston Villa and he has since played 190 games for the club.
The 29-year-old has now been targeted by former Forest boss Steve McClaren, who is now in charge of QPR.
The Hoops are looking for a replacement for James Perch, who has been released recently, while Hull City are not sure whether right-back Moses Odubajo will pen fresh terms with the club or move elsewhere.
Bolton want some competition for Mark Little and Stephen Darby while Bristol City’s Eros Pisano suffered injury concerns for most of last season.
Lichaj is a proven, reliable performer at Championship level and he would be an asset for any of these teams.
Perhaps Karanka is looking to blood Tendayi Darikwa in a bit more often and Lichaj could be let go at the right price.
But for his leadership, passion, commitment and experience, he is definitely worth keeping, even if he is just a back-up.
Nottingham Forest fans – Would you like to keep Lichaj or would you sell him?
Bristol City, Bolton, QPR and Hull fans – Would you like Lichaj?
