Grabban has been the subject of intense speculation linking him with both a move to Leeds United’s Elland Road and Nottingham Forest’s City Ground over the past few weeks.
The striker spent last season on loan in the Championship with Sunderland and Aston Villa and had a highly prolific campaign, scoring 20 goals in 34 appearances across his two loan spells, almost finishing as the top-scorer in the Championship.
It hasn’t quite worked out for Grabban in the Premier League and it’s likely that Bournemouth will be keen to get the striker off the wage bill during the coming weeks and with Forest making a move to sign the forward, it seems his time with the Premier League club is limited.
It looks as if Forest are set to bring in the experienced forward that Aitor Karanka wants during this transfer window and for a fee of £6 million, Grabban could be an absolute steal for the club with the striker having scored 112 goals over the course of career and he could the extra piece of the puzzle that Forest have been looking for during this transfer window to make their squad look like the perfect force to challenge for promotion this season.
Grabban would be an excellent acquisition for Forest and a move to the City Ground would give him a chance to really get up and running at a club he can settle at and additionally, he’d have the chance to become the main man at Forest which would be great for his confidence.
