Coventry City are now in a ‘strong position‘ to sign Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker, according to Coventry LIVE.
After sealing the League One title and gaining promotion to the Championship, Sky Blues boss Mark Robins has done an exceptional job in bringing in some new faces this summer.
Seemingly keen to sign a new striker, Robins has also been linked with a potential move for Ipswich Town striker Kayden Jackson.
Talks are said to have been ongoing between the £720,000-valued striker and his current club over an option to extend his deal but it is claimed that a latest deal has been rejected and whilst Coventry wait for the outcome, a new striker has been linked with the club.
Walker, who is valued at £720,000 by Transfermarkt spent the first half of last term on loan with League One side Lincoln City, netting 14 goals in 29 games.
Such good form saw him move back to parent club Forest in January and he would go on to net one goal, against Championship winners Leeds United, in a total of seven games.
Hull City and Peterborough are also said to be looking at a potential move for Walker, whilst Coventry boss Robins has recently spoke about the youngster.
Robins told CoventryLive : “If you are going for a player on loan there are a lot of anomalies with that and it could go right and it could go wrong.
“You just don’t know and there are situations where clubs are more powerful in terms of their ability to spend money than we are at this present time. We have to be aware of that and adjust our targets.”
Walker would be a good summer signing for Robins as he looks to add quality to his side. He proved a Lincoln last season that he is a goalscorer and he hasn’t yet had a proper chance at Championship level – he would surely get that at Coventry.
Robins continues to do an excellent job with the Sky Blues and a new striker would further enhance his side’s chances of remaining in England’s second tier.
