Brentford ready to outbid Forest for Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence

Brentford are targeting Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence.

The Sun says the Bees are plotting an ambitious £15million move for Spence and will fight Nottingham Forest for the player rated the EFL's best youngster.

The Bees think Middlesbrough wing-back Spence, 21, would be perfect for their playing style.

Boro will sell to the highest bidder and Spence has been linked with some huge clubs at home and abroad — but Brentford are deadly serious about pulling off a coup.

The Bees have been keen on Forest stars Brennan Johnson and Joe Worrall in recent times but the exciting Spence is now top of their list.

Forest will try to make Spence's stay full-time after taking him on loan and being able to extend his stay despite strong rival interest.

A move to the Premier League is in Spence's ambitions.
