Nottingham Forest transfer target Morgan Rogers watched the side as they were beaten by Bournemouth at the City Ground yesterday.
Believe Morgan Rogers was at the game today… has been on the #NFFC radar for a few weeks.
The Manchester City man played with Brennan Johnson at Lincoln last season.
He would be one heck of a signing if that one is progressing as it seems it might be.

Chris Hughton is monitoring the Manchester City attacking midfielder after his impressive loan spell with Lincoln City in the previous campaign and it has been suggested that a deal could happen before the deadline.
And, that speculation will only intensify after reporter Paul Taylor revealed that Rogers watched the game against the Cherries.
However, it’s fair to say that the prospect of Rogers at Forest received a mixed response from the support. Whilst some recognise that he is a talented youngster, others aren’t sure if he is the goal threat that Forest are lacking right now.
Were each of these 20 former Nottingham Forest players left or right footed?
Plus, Hughton is coming under pressure after a tough start to the season, with some claiming that he isn’t utilising his attacking players properly right now.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter to the update…
Be a good signing if we didn’t have a negative boring manager like Hughton. Sent me to sleep that second half 🥱

Perm = great but why not spend on other positions ie competent midfielder/ LB

Even if we did sign Rogers we would still play with colback and Yates in midfield 😂😂

Could of signed Messi but even that wouldn't change anything with hughton in charge.

We could sign Cruyff in his pomp and he would instantly forget how to play football the second he put the shirt on.
