Towards the end of the last window, Nottingham Forest showed interest in Fenerbahçe’s Michy Batshuayi.

Back in August, claims from Turkish press had stated that his agent was in England working hard to secure the transfer but the Tricky Trees weren’t able to get a deal over the line.

The 30-year-old didn’t get a move elsewhere and Nottingham Forest could be presented with another opportunity to sign him in January. That’s according to Sözcü, who state the forward is being followed by Steve Cooper’s side and RC Lens.

Batshuayi’s staying with the Istanbul club hasn’t worked out as he’s struggled for regular game time this season.

He’s been restricted to 76 minutes of action from four league games as Fenerbahçe manager İsmail Kartal has favoured Edin Džeko ahead of him.

The Belgium international has returned to his club after the international break and Kartal has asked him to be prepared for the upcoming games. However, the report states there was no response from the player.

Therefore, Fenerbahçe officials have ‘decided to part ways’ with him in January, and this would come as a boost for both Nottingham Forest and Lens.

The former Chelsea man has a deal until 2024, with an option for another year, and Sözcü claim the Turkish club are aiming to collect €10m from his sale in the winter market.
