Nottingham Forest striker Ben Brereton is a reported transfer target for Blackburn Rovers according to The Sun.
The 19-year-old burst onto the scene two years ago, and the striker has gone on to make 53 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals.
However, the England U19 international hasn’t been named in any of Aitor Karnka’s squads so far this season, including their Carabao Cup clash against Bury when he rested a number of key players.
Blackburn have reportedly bid £6million for the youngster but Forest are holding out for £12million as they look to make big money on the teenager they brought to the City Ground in 2015.
Nottingham Forest fans have been reacting to the transfer links on social media and here’s what they’ve had to say about the rumours.
It’s looking more likely Brereton’s on his way out. Not lived up to the hype from when he first came in the scene.
8 goals in 53 apps. Cash in while we can for me. #nffc

I remember a young Nigel Clough not being that great when breaking into the 1st team..he turned into some player…..same could be said for Robbo. Patience required #nffc

I would be gutted if they sold Brereton, he showed so much promise when he first played but last season was played mostly out of position. I am sure there are great things to come from him given the right support.

The lad has already surpassed what Burke did at the club and look at the money we got for him. Would be mad to sell England under 19 international for that money

He needs games. A loan till Jan with a recall would be sensible. I wouldnt sell.

Loan only. Would be criminal to lose a talent like that. He’s been played out of position and also was playing in a poor team. He’s 19 and will only grow

The club has made great strides forward this would be a step back in my opinion, send him out on loan for the season will do him the world of good

If you can get 7/8 million and negotiate future fees for appearances and goals and 25% sell on I’d sell.

A loan would be great for Brereton but then we are left with just Murphy to be back up to Grabban. That doesn’t fill me with much hope I’m afraid #NFFC
