HYS: Should Nottingham Forest go for Jamal Lowe?

According to The Daily Mail’s live transfer blog on Thursday (3:35pm), Nottingham Forest could launch a move to sign Portsmouth winger Jamal Lowe in this January transfer window.

Aitor Karanka invested heavily in attacking talent during this summer, bringing the likes of Lewis Grabban, El Arbi Hillel Soudani and Joao Carvalho to the City Ground. However, the Spanish coach appears keen to bolster his forward line further with the acquisition of Lowe.

The 24-year-old Pompey ace is certainly an attractive proposition. The wide man has been in blistering form for the League One table-toppers so far this season, having netted ten goals and registered four assists in twenty-six league outings.

Having worked his way up from the Southern League Premier Division, via the Isthmian League, National League system, and League Two, Lowe will be desperate to make the next step up to Championship football. 

Considering he’d likely come fairly cheap for the Reds too, the winger is worth a gamble on Forest’s part, and the fact that he can play on either wing means he could push Joe Lolley to be even better as he competes for a spot in the starting XI.

What do you think, Forest fans, should Karanka swoop for Lowe?
