Martin O’Neill has been linked with a variety of wingers this summer – Kamil Grosicki of Hull City, Hosam Aiesh of Ostersunds and Gavin Whyte of Oxford United – but Nottingham Forest should consider a move for Jamal Lowe to strengthen their attack. The Reds were linked with the Portsmouth man earlier in the season and could boost their promotion hopes in 2019/20 if they procured his signature.

Forest currently have Joe Lolley, Ben Osborn and Matty Cash to choose from on the wing, but only the former contributed goals on a regular basis last season (11 goals, 11 assists). Osborn and Cash, however, scored and created only five goals between them since the turn of the year, so a move for a player like Lowe is essential. He wants a Championship move too.

The Reds may have to battle Leeds United, Cardiff City and Wigan Athletic for his signature, however, with a number of clubs showing interest after his outstanding campaign in League One – Lowe scored and created 26 goals in 55 games in all competitions. He joined Pompey from Hampton & Richmond Borough in 2017 and could now be set for a move to the second tier.

The 24-year-old reportedly has a £2m asking price which won’t break the bank for Forest, but whether O’Neill wins the race for his signature remains to be seen. Lowe could leave Portsmouth on a free transfer in 2020, so his club might look to cash in early this summer.

  • Couple of things, 1) we have an option to extend another year and 2) our CEO already said we didn’t have to sell anyone and we’d want more than £2mil for him so yeah…

  • You are spot on M@

    More attention to detail is needed Crippy before you write an article and then double check your information.
    Jamal Lowe is going for around 3m or thereabouts and that’s if he goes. The days of Pompey being mugged and selling on the cheap have gone. We have shrewd owners and one of the shrewdest CEOs in the game.
