Nottingham Forest are in talks to sign Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News understands a deal is close to being finalised for a fee in the region of £5m, although Birmingham City are also interested in the 30-year-old.

Grabban has struggled to break into Bournemouth's starting line-up since signing for £7m from Norwich in January 2016.

He has been loaned out to Reading, Sunderland and Aston Villa in that time, impressing in the Sky Bet Championship last season, scoring 20 goals in 28 starts for the Black Cats and Villa.
