Portsmouth will face a battle to hold onto forward Jamal Lowe this month, according to Sky Sports.

The 24-year-old is on the radar of a host of Championship sides such as Nottingham Forest, Leeds United, West Brom and Middlesbrough.

Lowe has impressed for League One table toppers Pompey this season and has scored 11 goals in 29 games in all competitions.

The Harrow-born forward joined Portsmouth in October 2016 from non-league side Hampton and Richmond Borough and has turned out to have been an inspired signing. He has played just under 100 games for the Fratton Park club since his move.

Lowe started his career at Barnet and went onto play 15 times for their first-team. He also had loan spells at Hayes and Yeading United, Boreham Wood, Farnborough, St Albans and Hemel Hempstead Town before leaving Barnet permanently in 2015.

He signed for Hampton and Richmond and bagged 33 goals in 54 games for them which earned him his move to the Football League.

Lowe has adapted well to life at Portsmouth and could now be set for a move to the second tier. Nottingham Forest are in the hunt for some attacking reinforcements and could move for him this month.

Promotion chasing trio Leeds United, Middlesbrough and West Brom have all also been credited with an interest meaning Lowe will not be short of options.

Portsmouth are currently top of League One and will be hoping to see off interest in Lowe to help maintain their title charge.
