Nottingham Forest have been linked with making a move for Middlesbrough striker Patrick Bamford.

Willian of Chelsea close down Patrick Bamford of Middlesbrough during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge on May 8, 2017 in London, England.

Nottingham Forest fans appear to be divided over the rumours that they could move for Patrick Bamford.

The Northern Echo claim that Aitor Karanka will make a move for Bamford this month, as he looks to raid his former club.

Bamford was a trainee at Forest, before he moved to Chelsea, but his career has stalled in recent times.

Bamford was once considered to be one of England’s brightest strike prospects, but he has failed to live up to his billing.

The 24-year-old has failed to break into Middlesbrough’s team in a regular basis this term, and may be moved on over the coming weeks.

Some Forest fans are eager to see Bamford arrive at the City Ground, but others aren’t so keen on the idea.

If Bamford was to arrive at Forest, he would be in competition with the likes of Ben Brereton, Daryl Murphy and Jason Cummings for a first-team place.

Forest are currently in 14th place in the Championship table, with Karanka’s first match in charge set to come against Aston Villa.
