Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Rudy Gestede from Middlesbrough in the summer transfer window, according to The Nottingham Post.

It has been reported that Gestede is among four striker targets Forest have on their list to sign before the summer transfer window closes at the end of this month.

The Reds are claimed to be interested in signing Middlesbrough striker Gestede on loan this summer.

Norwich City’s Nelson Oliveira, Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham and Jermain Defoe of Bournemouth are also on Forest’s list, according to The Nottingham Post.

Good signing for Nottingham Forest?

Gestede is a proven striker at the Championship level, and the former Aston Villa man would be a good signing for Forest on loan.

The Benin international has struggled to make a huge impact at Boro since his move from Villa in January 2017 for a transfer fee reported by Gazette Live to be worth £6 million.

The 29-year-old will be a good support in the Forest attacking unit as the season progresses, and his experience will be important in Aitor Karanka’s side’s quest to finish in the top six of the Championship.
