Nottingham Forest are the latest club to be linked with a move for Hull City striker Abel Hernandez according to the Nottingham Post.

The Reds have struggled for goals since new manager Aitor Karanka arrived at the club in January and the Spaniard is likely to be keen to bolster his side’s attacking options during the close season.

It has now been reported that Forest may be interested in signing Hull City striker Hernandez. The Uruguayan international has snubbed the opportunity to sign a bumper new deal with The Tigers and now looks set to leave The KCOM Stadium this summer.

Hernandez joined Hull City from Italian club Palermo in a reported £10 million switch in September 2014. The striker has bagged 39 goals for the Humberside club in a spell which has seen him ruled out for long periods with serious injuries. Those problems have restricted the 27-year-old to 111 appearances in over four-and-a-half years at the club.

As well as the rumoured interest from Nottingham Forest in Hernandez, it is believed that league rivals Aston Villa, Greek club Olympiacos, Celtic and Newcastle United are also considering moves for the player.

Hernandez was a Sky Bet Championship play-off winner with Hull City in 2015/2016 while he has netted eight goals in just 10 outings for The Tigers this season.
