According to the Daily Mail, Nottingham Forest have revived a potential deal for Dinamo Zagreb attacker El Arabi Hillel Soudani having missed out on a January move.

Forest have already secured the signature of defender Michael Dawson this summer, with the former Hull City man heading back to the City Ground, and manager Aitor Karanka will be keen on further arrivals.

Another attacker may need to be snapped up, and reports now suggest that Forest are looking to rekindle a move for one forward they pursued during the January transfer window.

The Daily Mail report that Forest want to land Dinamo Zagreb forward El Arabi Hillel Soudani, having failed to land the Algerian international in January.

Soudani, 30, is allegedly looking to move on this summer, and whilst Forest are attempting to secure his signature, teams in Europe and China could pip them with more lucrative offers.

Capable of playing out wide or up front, Soudani has hit double figures in goals for Dinamo since his 2013 move from Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal, boasting a record of 86 goals in 197 games for the Croatians.

That record makes Soudani a hugely exciting target for Forest, and having missed out months ago, they will now hope to finally secure his signature in a major boost for Karanka.
