Watford, Crystal Palace and West Brom are all being linked with Nottingham Forest winger Joe Lolley.

The 26-year-old has impressed in the Championship this season for Forest and could potentially be on his way this summer, according to a report by the Daily Mail.

Lolley has scored eleven goals in all competitions in this campaign and has also chipped in with eleven assists.

He spent time as a youngster at Villa’s bitter rivals Birmingham City but had to work his way up the leagues via non-league. He has spells at Bromsgrove Rovers, Littleton and Kiddersminster Harriers before he was snapped up by Huddersfield in 2014.

Lolley spent four-and-a-half seasons with the Terriers, albeit with a loan stint at Scunthorpe United in 2015, and was part of their promotion to the Premier League in 2017 under David Wagner.

However, he left for more regular first-team football for Nottingham Forest in January 2018 for just £1 million and the move has paid off.

Watford are apparently interested in bringing him to Vicarage Road this summer. The FA Cup finalists may see as another attacking option for next season.

The Hornets will have to face competition from Premier League rivals Crystal Palace for his signature. The Eagles see Lolley as someone who is capable of making the step up from the Championship.

West Brom have also been credited with an interest. James Shan’s sides’ chances of landing Lolley will depend on whether they are promoted via the Play-Offs.
