Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Reading defender Tom Holmes this summer, according to Nottinghamshire Live.

But Forest are actively trying to bolster their squad, with Reading’s Josh Laurent on their radar having already had a seven-figure offer turned down for the midfielder.

Another Reading player is believed to be on Forest’s radar. As per Nottinghamshire Live, defender Tom Holmes is of interest.

Holmes, then, sounds like he would be a useful addition for Chris Hughton’s side, but what have fans made of the speculation?
