Report: Nottingham Forest renew interest in signing Lee Angol after 30-goal season

Nottingham Forest are reportedly interested in signing ex-Tottenham youngster Lee Angol.

According to The Sun, Nottingham Forest are still interested in signing Peterborough United striker Lee Angol ahead of the January transfer window.

Forest fell to a 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough on Saturday, though front two Chris O'Grady and Nelson Oliveira looked dangerous throughout.

O'Grady and Oliviera arrived on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion and Benfica respectively, and their deadline day moves have given manager Dougie Freedman more attacking options, with Britt Assombalonga still sidelined with a long-term injury.

Dexter Blackstock and teenager Tyler Walker offer other options in attack for Freedman, but signing another striker this season may be on Forest's wish list this season.

Now, The Sun report that, having held an interest in signing him in 2014, Forest are once again tracking striker Lee Angol, who currently plays for Peterborough United.

The 21-year-old forward, who came up through the ranks with Tottenham, hit the headlines last season with 30 goals for Boreham Wood during a loan spell from Luton Town, and his non-league exploits were enough for Peterborough to sign him on a three-year deal back in July.

With two goals in two games this season, Angol has again shown his potential in front of goal - and as one for the future, Angol could be a smart signing for Forest if Peterborough are willing to let him leave just months after signing him.
