And Forest supporters are hoping that they launch a bid to sign the attacker off their arch rivals.
Vydra has enjoyed a wonderful season at Derby, where he has notched 21 goals, but he has fallen out of favour more recently.
Gary Rowett’s switch of formation has seen Vydra lose his place, and he now deemed an expendable member of the Rams’ squad.
Derby may well be reluctant to deal with Forest if the Reds did come in for the Czech Republic international, but Forest fans are still hoping that a deal could be possible.
Think we should make a bid for Vydra now the sheep are staying down. They might need to sell, he always scores goals. You never know. #NFFC— Woof Zip Criminal (@fritzromanov) May 15, 2018
I double dare Karanka to put a bid in for Vydra. Just cos we can— Claire (@LilMissRedDog) May 15, 2018
He would fit in well for our promotion season— David Hutchby (@DavidDerbyd) May 15, 2018
Forest are expected to invest heavily this summer, in the hope of aiding Aitor Karanka to mount a promotion push next term.
Forest struggled for goals over the past campaign, so improving their forward line will be one of their top priorities in the transfer window this summer.
