Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban wanted by Forest, Birmingham

Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban is attracting Championship interest.

The Mirror says Nottingham Forest trying to beat off late competition from Birmingham for Bournemouth striker Grabban in a £5million swoop.

Grabban,30, bagged 20 goals in the Championship last term with 12 for struggling Sunderland before a further eight after joining Aston Villa on loan in January.

Forest manager Aitor Karanka, who bossed Middlesbrough from 2013-2017, has confirmed Grabban is a player he rates.

“Lewis is a good player and I wanted him when I was at Middlesbrough. In the end he went to Norwich," said Karanka.

“I can tell you that the striker who arrives will be the right one for this club."
