According to the Nottingham Post, Forest are one of the Championship clubs who are interested in taking Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham on loan, and Reds fans on Twitter were excited by the news.
The Nottingham Post reports that if young striker Ben Brereton completes his move from the City Ground to Blackburn before the loan deadline, then boss Aitor Karanka will look to bring in another attacking option.
Forest currently sit 13th in the Championship after five matches. Karanka’s side are still unbeaten but have only won one game, a 1-0 victory at home to Reading. Brereton is an England U19 international but has struggled for game time at Forest recently and is yet to play this season.
Abraham on the other hand is third choice striker at Chelsea behind Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud after spending last season on loan with Swansea and a loan move may be best for the 20-year-old’s development.
Check out some of the best tweets from Forest fans in response to the rumour below.
If we get quality like Abraham then that softens the blow, I imagine this is a move to stay under FFP if so

A striker has to be lined up for Breretons departure surely? Abraham would be unreal but feel like it will be Gestede #NFFC

I'd be happy with Abraham. Gestede ok. Oliveria no thanks.
