Premier League interest is growing for Nottingham Forest defender Jamaal Lascelles.

The Telegraph says Lascelles has emerged as a potential target for Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle, but Forest are keen to reward his progress with vastly improved terms.

Arsenal sent chief scout Steve Rowley to watch Lascelles in Forest's game at Bolton on Saturday and have been long-term admirers of the youngster.

The 20-year-old only agreed a long-term deal in August 2012 but his rapid emergence this season has raised the threat of a bid in the January transfer window.
