The Lowdown: Bowler profiled
Bowler has previously been on the books of QPR and Everton, with David Unsworth labelling the forward ‘magic’ during his time with the latter.
The 23-year-old signed for Blackpool last year on a free transfer and has impressed in the second tier, scoring seven times and registering three assists in 42 appearances during the previous campaign, taking his goal tally to 15 during his career.
He is already into the final 12 months of his deal with the Seasiders, and it looks as if Forest are now looking at the Englishman as they eye another attacking addition for Steve Cooper.
The Latest: Forest keen on Bowler
According to Nixon for The Sun late on Saturday night, Bowler is on Forest’s radar as they grow frustrated in their pursuit of Wolves’ Morgan Gibbs-White.
The reliable reporter stated in the last 24 hours that the Blackpool ace, who has also been linked with Bournemouth, is hoping that Forest and Evangelos Marinakis come in with an offer before the end of the summer transfer window.
Bowler at Forest?
Yes, why not!
No, we can do better!
The Verdict: A gamble?
You’d like to think that a transfer wouldn’t involve mega money, with Bowler’s contract running down and a rather modest £1.8m Transfermarkt valuation.
That indicates that signing him could be a risk, but as mentioned, a potential cut-price fee could twist Forest’s arm into taking a gamble on the right-sided winger – only time will tell.
