Brentford are open to letting Marcus Forss leave on loan in the January transfer window as they have been inundated with interest in the Finnish star, Football League World understands.
Several Championship sides are currently taking a look at the young forward, with Fulham, Sheffield United, Middlesbrough, Stoke City, Nottingham Forest and West Bromwich Albion all having him on their respective radars.
Top flight clubs in France and Germany have also shown an interest, but Brentford ideally want him to stay in this country if he does leave in the January market.
The Bees have no intention of letting the player leave the club permanently in the next window, but are open to letting him leave on a temporary basis, with a number of sides looking at him as a potential boost to their hopes for the second half of the season.
All six Championship sides mentioned have play-off or promotion ambitions for the remainder of the campaign and the extra firepower that Forss could bring them could be what makes the difference between achieving their goals or not by the end of the year.
Forss has been used largely as a sub so far this season, and it appears the case that the Bees are looking to give him some more minutes elsewhere.
