Report: Willem II join PEC Zwolle in transfer race for Nottingham Forest flop Lars Veldwijk

The Dutchman struggled for form at the City Ground last season.

Nottingham Forest striker Lars Veldwijk is being heavily linked with a move away from the City Ground this summer. After being linked with a reunion with his former Excelsior boss Marinus Dijkhuizen at Brentford Dutch side PEC Zwolle have also confirmed their interest in the player.

Now it is being rumoured that another Dutch side are keen on taking him back to Holland.

Willem II are the team in question, as reported by Voetbal Primeur.

They claim that the Eredivisie side are looking for a new striker and have narrowed their search down to Veldwijk and Ajax youngster Richairo Zivkovic. They are said to want the player on loan.

Should Forest let him go?

It would appear a no brainer to allow Veldwijk on his way. He had a poor debut season at the club, scoring no goals in 14 appearances and failing to break into the first-team.

However, the fact they remain under a transfer embargo must be taken into consideration.

Forest are not likely to be able to bring in a heap of new players this summer meaning the ones they have currently got, however poor they played last term, must be considered.

Veldwijk barely got a chance at Forest and he might just come good in a second season. However, the likelihood remains that he will be on his way this summer.
