Nottingham Forest could reportedly land the Dundee United striker for around £2 million.

Dundee United fans are reacting to reports linking Lawrence Shankland with a move to Nottingham Forest.

The Sun reports that Nottingham Forest are ‘planning a raid’ for the striker, who has already scored 19 goals for Dundee United this season.

The Reds are said to have had Shankland watched during Friday’s Dundee derby, in which the 24-year-old – for whom it is claimed a £2 million offer could be enough – was again on target.

Shankland’s impressive club form saw him capped by Scotland for the first time last month, and he scored on his second outing against San Marino.

But as the former Queen’s Park, Aberdeen and Ayr United player heads off for another international break, what are those of a Dundee United persuasion saying in response to the Nottingham Forest speculation?

Nottingham Forest are short of orthodox centre-forwards beyond their first-choice, Lewis Grabban.

The Reds also have Rafa Mir and Zac Clough to call on, although only the former has appeared in the league this season.

Nottingham Forest fans – what would you make of a January move for Shankland?
