According to reports from The Football Insider, Bolton Wanderers, Brentford FC and Wigan Athletic are eyeing a move for Nottingham Forest midfielder Jorge Grant, who is currently on loan at Notts County.

The Football Insider states:

“A well-placed source has told Football Insider that Brentford, Bolton and League One promotion hopefuls Wigan are all monitoring Grant’s situation and are ready to make a move for the attacking midfielder when the transfer window reopens in January.”

Who is Jorge Grant? Well, the 22 year old centre midfielder, who can also play on either wing, has been with Nottingham Forest since 2013. Before that, Grant was part of the Nike Academy, which has helped kickstart the careers of players like Tom Rogic and Majeed Waris.

Jorge Grant has played twenty times for Forest, and in January, he moved on loan to rivals Notts County, managed of course by Wanderers legend Kevin Nolan.

Grant has been in scintillating form for The Magpies, scoring 17 times in 37 games. Eleven of those goals have come this season, the last of which was in County’s 4-2 win against Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup last Friday.

More than likely, it’s going to take a fee to sign Grant. Do Wanderers need an attacking central midfielder?
