Sky Bet Championship duo Bristol City and Nottingham Forest are weighing up moves for Moroccan winger Mimoun Mahi according to the Bristol Post.

The 23-year-old Dutch born wideman currently plays his football in the Eredivisie with FC Groningen and he has impressed with the ‘Pride of the North’.

Mahi’s good performances are thought to be attracting the player plenty of admirers and Sky Bet Championship clubs Bristol City and Nottingham Forest are believed to be considering moves for the winger. The Moroccan international has an automatic buyout clause of around £2 million written into his contract at the Noordiease Stadium and both clubs could look to activate that clause by submitting transfer bids during the January transfer window.

As well as the interest from both The Robins and Forest, it has also been reported that English Premier League club Stoke City are tracking the youngster.

Mahi started his career with Sparta Rotterdam where he made 41 senior appearances and scored seven goals. The player joined current club FC Groningen in 2014 and helped the unfashionable top flight side to the Dutch KNVB Cup in his first season at the club.

The winger made his international debut for Morocco earlier this year and scored his first goal for the nation in a 6-0 victory over Mali in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match last month.
