Karim Ansarifard is being tipped to follow Panagiotis Tachtsidis from Olympiakos to Championship outfit Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest might have brought in 14 new players during the summer transfer window but Aitor Karanka has not stopped there.

Greek international Panagiotis Tachtsidis arrived at the City Ground on a free transfer on Wednesday while, according to The Mail, Forest are in talks to sign 31-year-old Claudio Yacob, who was released by West Brom at the end of last season.

And despite missing out on Karim Ansarifard on deadline day, it seems that Forest are still hopeful of a deal for the Iranian international.

Like Tachtsidis, Ansarifard is a free agent after having his contract cancelled by Olympiakos, the Greek giants who are also owned by Forest chief Evangelos Marinakis.

The Mail claims that Nottingham Forest have talked to the 28-year-old, who featured in this summer’s World Cup. The problem is, however, Ansarifard would struggle to obtain a work permit in order to play in England.

Ansarifard enjoyed a brilliant season for Olympiakos in 2017/18, scoring 18 goals in 27 games in all competitions. He has also earned 64 caps for his country, netting an impressive 17 goals.
