Villa decided against keeping Adomah after their promotion to the Premier League, and Martin O’Neill would like to bring him to Forest now.
Forest don’t face a clear run for the 31-year-old, as plenty of Championship clubs are also keen.
Bristol City and Millwall are said to have an interest, with Forest set to have to beat fierce competition for the wide-man.
Crucially, Adomah is said to be eager to remain in the Midlands, which may put Forest at an advantage.
However, the idea of a return to Bristol City is also said to appeal to Adomah.
Adomah is almost guaranteed to be a success if he was to move to Forest, as he is so proven at Championship level.
The Ghanian may be ageing now, but he still remains a threat in the second tier.
And if Forest could pick him up on a free transfer then it could be one of the bargains of the summer.
