Nottingham Forest are reportedly closing in on the loan signing of Lille striker Michael Frey.

It is understood that the Championship club, who lost 1-0 to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Football League season’s opener on Friday evening, are in discussions with the French outfit over a possible season-long loan deal for the 21-year-old.

Frey, who joined Lille from BSC Young Boys only last summer, scored eight goals in 33 appearances in all competitions last season.

With injury to star striker Britt Assombalonga, Forest boss Dougie Freedman is thought to be keen on wrapping up a loan deal for the Switzerland Under-21 international before the close of the transfer window.
