Nottingham Forest: Reds eyeing up move for Chris Wood

Nottingham Forest: Reds eyeing up move for Chris Wood -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest are plotting a potential move for Newcastle United striker Chris Wood in the January transfer window, according to a new update.

The Lowdown: Wood struggling for minutes

The New Zealander has found himself pushed down the attacking pecking order at St James’ Park this season, with Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson usually preferred when fit.

Wood has only made four starts in the Premier League so far in 2022/23 and it could be that the idea of more minutes elsewhere appeals to him.

Now, it looks as though the 31-year-old could be offered a route out of Newcastle, following a fresh report.

The Latest: Forest keen on signing

That’s according to Football Insider, who claim that Forest are eyeing up a ‘surprise move’ for Wood, with manager Steve Cooper ‘keen’ to sign a striker.

It is believed that the Reds are looking at back loan and permanent moves for the attacker, whose current Magpies deal runs out at the end of next season.

Which one of these kit manunfactuers have never produced Forest shirts?

The Verdict: Great January addition?

Goals have come at a premium for Forest this season, with only 15 scored in 19 league matches, so the acquisition of Wood could suddenly improve that weakness.

Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Granted, the 33-goal and 70-time capped New Zealand international hasn’t been prolific this season, but he has 54 Premier League goals to his name, which shouldn’t be sniffed at.

Wood may not solve Forest’s attacking woes on his own but he would be a physical and experienced addition to Cooper’s squad, having been described as ‘exceptional’ by journalist Jordan Cronin last year.
