Scouts from the Championship side have been highly impressed with the 18-year-old midfielder who has recently broken into the first-team.

Boss Frank Lampard had previously ruled out a summer loan switch for the youngster because he felt his development was better suited in the academy.

But Forest manager Sabri Lamouchi will attempt to land him in January in a bid to bolster the club's promotion charge.

London Football News says they face stiff competition from Leeds who will also lodge a bid.

The former Norway midfielder played for Forest, Blackburn Rovers and Derby in England. But it is Forest where Bohinen would like to return.

"That's the dream, yes," he told VG.

"It would have been most fun if I had the opportunity with Nottingham Forest. But then I must probably have to do a little more to prove myself than training Norwegian teams between the two top divisions.

"I have a lot of different experience, but I've only worked as a football coach for seven years, so I got late into the job I like best."

<![CDATA[Exclusive: Nottingham Forest icon Chettle on Basford Utd 'dream factory']]> <p>Nottingham Forest legend Steve Chettle is loving the challenge of managing Basford United.</p><p>The former defender, 51, left Notts County at the end of last season to sign a four-year deal with the Northern Premier League Premier Division side.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/exclusive-nottingham-forest-icon-chettle-on-basford-utd-dream-factory-4299561?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BNottingham%2BForest'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Nottingham Forest legend Steve Chettle is loving the challenge of managing Basford United.

The former defender, 51, left Notts County at the end of last season to sign a four-year deal with the Northern Premier League Premier Division side.

The season has gone well so far for the Nottinghamshire club, with six wins from 11 games putting them equal second on the table.

Having spent the last few years as an assistant and youth coach, Chettle is relishing the challenge of being back in the dugout.

He told TribalFootball.com: "I've really enjoyed it. I've done this level before as assistant manager at Ilkeston when they were in the Northern Premier League.

"I've obviously stepped back from professional football last season at Notts County coming to Basford United, which is a club that is right on my doorstep location wise, I live six minutes from the training ground. I played my first junior game here, so I've got a close affiliation to the football club.

"It's a club I've always followed so it's nice to be here. [My career] has absolutely gone full circle, from being nine years old now to being right on the edge of my 51st birthday on Friday, so it's a long time but it's gone full circle and I'm back where my football roots started."

But Chettle insists his decision to join Basford goes beyond sentimentality.

Asked if history inspired the move, Chettle continued: "No. It's a football club that is going in the right direction.

"The previous regime of management had five promotions from seven years from local football into getting into the Northern Premier League.

"It's a tough ask to follow those kind of successes but we have a four-year plan, myself and the chairman and the football club to get as high as we can, but also making the club sustainable and growing from underneath with the grassroots and youth teams."

As previously mentioned, Chettle has experience at non-league level thanks to his time at Ilkeston Town.

Chettle worked as an assistant alongside former Chelsea and Derby County striker Kevin Wilson, helping cultivate their own 'dream-factory' where they gave second chances to footballers who fell out of the Football League system.

Che Adams is the most notable name who came through the Ilkeston program during Chettle's time with the club. The striker moved to Sheffield United then Birmingham before earning a move to the Premier League this summer with Southampton.

And Chettle says he is replicating the same system at Basford.

"Absolutely. I've done it before. We've taken kids now that were in the academy programs from 16 to 19 year olds. We've got kids who have been released from Nottingham Forest, Notts County, Mansfield Town, Chesterfield, who have now come into our academy development program.

"We played Sheffield United two weeks ago and beat them. We've got through the first qualifying round of the FA Youth Cup so we're looking forward to the second-round of that which is next week.

"Like I say it just gives people another route back into semi-professional sport and then hopefully if they do really well in the senior team then get back into the Football League."

With vast knowledge of top football from his long playing career, Chettle says people would be surprised about how high the level is in the non-leagues.

He added: "This league's tough. You've known players who have played in the Football League.

"Our midfield at Basford ourselves, we've got two players who have played for Nottingham Forest, we've got one from Mansfield, one from Peterborough.

"People are coming down now because at your top end of the Northern Premier League and Conference North there is some good money to be had and if you now go into working in it, it is beneficial for you as well, it's a double edge thing for them.

"So it's a really tough league and it's only going to get tougher with the amount of quality players in the league."

Worrall, 22, has impressed at the City Ground this season and Steve Bruce is a big admirer of the centre-back, says The Sun.

He is eyeing a January move for Worrall on the cheap as the Forest youth graduate is out of contract in the summer.

Bruce reckons the no-nonsense defender can help shore up his backline for the second half of the season, regardless of where his team are in the table.

Worrall has been a Premier League target in the past for both Burnley and Crystal Palace but he refused to leave his boyhood club.

<![CDATA[Steve Chettle Exclusive: Collymore like Ronaldo & better than Keane at Nottingham Forest]]> <p>Nottingham Forest legend Steve Chettle says Stan Collymore was the most talented footballer he played alongside at the City Ground.</p><p>An enigmatic and talented centre-forward, Collymore joined Forest from Southend United in 1993 and became a star in his two seasons at the club.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/steve-chettle-exclusive-collymore-like-ronaldo-better-than-keane-at-nottingham-forest-4298163?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BNottingham%2BForest'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Nottingham Forest legend Steve Chettle says Stan Collymore was the most talented footballer he played alongside at the City Ground.

An enigmatic and talented centre-forward, Collymore joined Forest from Southend United in 1993 and became a star in his two seasons at the club.

His breakthrough culminated in an unbelievable 1994/95 season, in which Collymore's 22 goals helped Forest finish third in the Premier League.

Those performances motivated Liverpool to pay 8.4m for the then 24-year-old, breaking the British record transfer fee at the time.

The sale wasn't a surprise given Forest had sold Neil Webb and Roy Keane to Manchester United, and Nigel Clough to Liverpool, in the years prior to Collymore's move.

Chettle played alongside all four, and when asked who was the most talented of the bunch, the club's third-highest games holder selected Collymore, who he compared to former Real Madrid and Inter Milan striker Ronaldo Nazario.

"Stan Collymore. The best player I've played alongside is Stan Collymore," Chettle told Tribalfootball.com.

"He had everything. I've compared him, maybe rightly or wrongly, to the old fashioned number nine Ronaldo.

"He could do everything, especially the year when we finished third in the Premier League.

"He scored some unbelievable goals and he was the best player I played with in a Forest team."

After watching the club as a boy and coming through the academy ranks, Chettle was introduced to the first-team by legendary manager Brian Clough in the late 1980's.

He would go on to play 527 games in 13 years for his boyhood club, winning the League Cup in 1989 and 1990 and playing alongside some legendary players such as Stuart Pearce, Des Walker, Keane and Clough.

Quizzed on which was the best team he played in, Chettle split the answer in two.

"There were a couple of generations of teams," he continued.

"There was one that I first came into playing alongside Stuart Pearce, Des Walker, Steve Hodge, Neil Webb, Nigel Clough. I used to go away and travel with the England U21s and all those boys in the senior group.

"It was a great time to be around that football club and in that team because I was only 19 years old so it was a great learning curve for me.

"Then the next phase when I was playing alongside Roy Keane, Steve Stone. We had two kind of generations of fantastic teams so it was kind of a different experience for my career and I like them both as equal."

After recovering from a hernia operation, Scottish full-back Tierney made his Gunners debut in the 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup third round on Tuesday, a game in which Martinelli scored twice.

Holding also found the net and said: Kieran's a good Scottish lad who brings a bit of banter to the team.

"He and I are getting on really well, you couldn't ask for a better way for him to settle in.

He's a top-quality lad and he's a great lift in the changing room as well. He's a really nice guy and I'm so happy for him to play and get 60 minutes under his belt."

On Martinelli, he added: He's been a handful in training. He's a sharp lad and a natural finisher.

You saw the header, he's a small lad and he got up there and won it. He's impressive so hopefully he can continue with that."

Tierney signed for Arsenal from Celtic during the summer transfer window, but had been suffering from a groin problem since May.

The Gunners were not put off by those issues given that the 22-year-old is seen as a long-term solution at left-back, and Tierney was named in Unai Emery's starting lineup for the first time in Tuesday night's Carabao Cup tie against Nottingham Forest at the Emirates.

Tierney was afforded a warm welcome by the Arsenal fans in north London, and his debut was a strong one as the Gunners eased to a 5-0 victory over Forest.

Later, Tierney wrote: "Thank you so much for all your support... very grateful. Great feeling making my debut!"

It was an emotional night for Bellerin as he returned to the first team after more than nine months out injured.

"I think Hector's attitude is a very big attitude to help us," Emery said. "When he was injured he was still a big mentality in the dressing room helping us.

"He assisted for [Joe] Willock to score and also to have different options in the squad and first XI is good. We are going to play a lot of matches and tonight was his first 15 minutes [with us], which is really important.

"He wanted to play 90 and yesterday he told me he's ready and wanted to play, but we decided to give him less minutes than 90. He played with the under-23s on Friday and also they are the first matches for him. We need to do it progressively and the doctor said to us that we are going to do it like that.

"I think no [he can't play 90 minutes against Manchester United next]. Maybe in his mind yes, but we need to listen to the doctor and the doctor wants to do it progressively. Really tonight is the first day and the first minutes, and we are going to maybe share some minutes with the under-23s.

"It depends how he's feeling, but in his mind he's feeling very well and I think the first minutes tonight were amazing for him. We are going to use him with Ainsley [Maitland-Niles] and Calum Chambers to help us in this position. The most important things about Hector are his attitude and experience. He's wishing to help us."
