The Coventry Telegraph has claimed that Coventry City are interested in Nottingham Forest’s young goalscorer Tyler Walker, as Mark Robins eyes up a new striker ahead of the 2019/20 League One season.

League One side Coventry City are eyeing up a move for Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker, it has been claimed by the Coventry Telegraph.

Walker, 22, has proven himself to be a prolific goalscorer at League Two level during his time with Mansfield Town. Last season, the Forest academy graduate scored 26 goals in 52 games across all competitions with the Stags, helping the club achieve a place in the League Two play-off spots, where they were defeated by Newport County, succumbing them to another season in the fourth tier.

Mark Robins has identified Walker as a possible option this summer, as he looks to provide support and competition for striker Conor Chaplin.

However, it is yet to be revealed if new Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi has plans to blood striker Walker into his first-team plans for the new season, or if he intends to loan the striker out as Forest managers of the past have done over the course of the past three seasons.

Walker has spent time on loan with Burton Albion (six games, one goal), Stevenage (nine games, four goals and one assist), Port Vale (six games, two goals and one assist), Bolton Wanderers (five games) and Mansfield Town (52 games, 26 goals and four assists). The striker has also played 38 times for the Forest first-team, scoring six times along the way.
