According to a report from the Daily Mirror's live transfer blog (13/06; 20:14), Nottingham Forest could consider selling Joe Worrall this summer in an attempt to balance the books as they prepare to smash their club record on Joao Carvalho.

The Mirror reports that Forest are eyeing a £13.2 million deal for the 21-year-old, while Diogo Goncalves is close to securing a loan move to the City Ground. It would be a tremendous statement from a Forest side that has spent far too long outside of the top flight - the coming campaign will be their 20th since their most recent stint in the Premier League.

However, the Mirror adds on their transfer blog (13/06; 20:14) that Aitor Karanka's men may have to consider potential sales to make sure that the books are balanced, and that may present Burnley with an opportunity amid reports that they are interested in Worrall.

The Mirror suggests that the club could cash in on the 21-year-old this summer, and the Clarets are reportedly interested in potentially bringing him to Turf Moor for the coming campaign.

Sean Dyche's men are preparing for a Europa League campaign after a stunning Premier League season where they surprised many by finishing seventh in the table. 

And despite spending the best part of a decade on Forest's books, the chance to make the move to Turf Moor - if it does present itself this summer - must be tempting for the England under-21 international, especially if the Championship side decide that they would be open to lucrative offers for the youngster.
