Nottingham Forest have reportedly made an offer to sign Blackpool midfielder Josh Bowler.
The lowdown: Long-term target
The Reds were initially linked with a move for Bowler earlier in the window but have since prioritised and indeed signed alternative options.
The 23-year-old Englishman, who came through the ranks at QPR prior to spells at Everton and Hull City, currently remains in situ at the Championship outfit.
Now it appears as though Forest have made a last-ditch attempt to get a deal over the line and bring Bowler to the City Ground…
The latest: Offer made
As per 90min, Nottingham Forest are believed to have made a bid worth ‘around’ £3million for the versatile ace.
It’s claimed that Bowler has ‘been a target for Steve Cooper since January’ as Bournemouth, Fulham and Blackburn Rovers also share an interest.
The verdict: Get it done
So far this term, the £1.8million valued starlet has scored twice in six appearances for Blackpool, earning a superb 7.03 SofaScore rating whilst winning 5.2 duels, successfully completing 3.0 dribbles and taking 4.0 shots on average per outing in the process.
Capable of playing on either wing and in central positions, Bowler would be an excellent addition to Cooper’s options and having entered the final year of a contract, should be attainable at a relatively low fee despite the initial rejection.
