Anthony Knockaert is attracting interest from another club outside of the UK, according to The Athletic’s Daniel Taylor.
Knockaert has spent this season on loan at Nottingham Forest, after becoming Chris Hughton’s first and only signing in charge following his move from Fulham back in October.
The 29-year-old has been one of the Reds’ most dangerous players going forward, scoring one goal and registering one assist in 16 appearances.
Knockaert’s loan deal at the City Ground is set to expire tomorrow, and it remains to be seen whether Forest extend his loan deal to see him remain until the end of the season.
According to Daniel Taylor, Forest are keen to do just that – though they face competition for his signature.
Taylor claims that a foreign side are also keen on signing Knockaert on loan, with Fulham trying to receive as much as money as possible for the Frenchman.
Forest do have the option to buy Knockaert at the end of his loan spell, though it seems unlikely that they will activate that option this month.
This is a blow for Forest.
Knockaert hasn’t produced the best of performances on a regular enough basis for Forest, but there’s no denying his quality.
Chris Hughton knows how to get the best out of him, and without him, they look short of any ideas going forward.
For me, it would be a blow if they were unable to extend his loan, and it would mean that they would have to bring someone else in.
