And it seems that his performances have attracted attention from the top tier, with Arsenal and Liverpool having both had scouts assessing the teenager.

It’s understood that Crystal Palace are at the front of the queue for the two-cap Scotland international, and the exit of Yannick Bolasie could lead to a move before the close of the current transfer window.

Forest want £8m for their starlet, who himself may be keen to step up to a higher level before too long.

The youngster is a product of Forest’s youth set-up and is thought of highly at the City Ground.
