According to The Scottish Sun, Nottingham Forest, Sunderland, Swansea City and Hull City are interested in signing Lawrence Shankland in the summer transfer window.

Shankland is leaving Ayr United this summer, as the 23-year-old striker himself has revealed on Twitter.

According to The Scottish Sun, the youngster has scored 63 goals in 74 matches since joining Ayr in 2017.

The Scottish Sun has claimed that Championship trio Forest, Swansea and Hull are interested in securing the services of Shankland on a free transfer, and so are Sunderland, who are aiming to clinch promotion from League One.

Promising player

Shankland is a very good striker, and at the age of 23, it is safe to assume that he can only improve in the coming years.

It will be quite a step-up from Ayr to Forest or Sunderland for the 23-year-old, but if he is given time and is afforded patience, then he could well be a success in the Championship or in League One in England.
