Report: Nottingham Forest interested in Liverpool's Alex O'Hanlon

The Republic of Ireland youngster is set to leave Melwood this summer.

Liverpool youngster Alex O’Hanlon has been linked with a move away from the club this week, as Championship teams lurk.

He has already played for Sheffield Wednesday on trial whilst interest from Bristol City has come to an end.

But Nottingham Forest are also said to be keen on the player, according to Sky Sports.

They report that Forest, as well as Oxford United, are keen on the Republic of Ireland under-21 international.

O’Hanlon is out of contract at the Premier League club this summer, who he joined in 2011 from Dublin side St. Kevin’s Boys Club.

The report claims he wants regular first-team football and is not set to receive it at Liverpool.

Forest have recently come out of a transfer embargo which should make any move for the Irishman smoother. Whilst he might be a free agent in the summer his age would have meant paying a compensation fee to Liverpool for his signature – which may have fallen foul of the FFP regulations.

A talented left or central midfielder the future of this 20-year-old still looks bright, even if it won’t be at Liverpool.
