Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson is said to be attracting plenty of transfer interest ahead of the new season.

Johnson spent last season on loan in League One with Lincoln City, thriving on loan at the LNER Stadium. He scored 13 goals and chipped in with a number of assists to help Michael Appleton’s side reach the play-offs.
