Nottingham Forest striker Lewis Grabban jumped to the top of the Championship goalscoring charts after netting both of his side’s goals in their 2-0 win against strugglers Ipswich Town at the City Ground on Saturday.
There would have been a few eyebrows raised when the Reds signed the 30-year-old for a reported £6m fee during the summer given his impressive record at this level, and the centre-forward is already proving that he was worth that price tag, and even more.
It seems as though the former Bournemouth and Aston Villa attacker will play a crucial part in Forest’s promotion chances this term as they jumped up to fifth in the standings over the weekend, as long as the likes of Joe Lolley and Joao Carvalho can continue to supply him with chances.
Incredibly, Grabban has also missed three penalties in the league this term, so his total of 14 could have been even higher as he now leads players such as Neal Maupay, Teemu Pukki and Tammy Abraham in the rankings.
We at Football FanCast believe that given his form and some of the astounding transfer fees being thrown around in the modern era that the 30-year-old is worth at least £18m – three times what the east Midlands outfit paid for him – even if perhaps his all-round game is sometimes limited.
We want Nottingham Forest supporters to vote on our poll below to tell us how much they think the prolific striker should be valued at now, as he continues to strengthen his position as a huge fans’ favourite.
