According to Nottingham Live (as cited by Lincolnshire Live), Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker looks set to make a loan move to Lincoln City, with the Imps beating interest from “at least 10 clubs” to sign the Forest man.

After a thoroughly impressive loan spell in League Two with Mansfield Town, where he netted 26 goals as the Stags made their way to the play-off semi-finals, a number of clubs have been keen to bring in Nottingham Forest man Tyler Walker.

Coventry City have been heavily linked with Walker as they look to replace Conor Chaplin, who made the move to Barnsley earlier this summer. However, it has been reported now that it is Lincoln City who are poised to complete the signing of the young striker, fending off significant interest. It is claimed in the report that “at least 10 clubs” have shown interest in signing Walker, but it is Danny Cowley’s Imps who look set to win the race.

Walker, 22, has proven himself to be a prolific goalscorer at League Two level during his time with Mansfield. The Forest academy graduate scored 26 goals in 52 games across all competitions with the Stags.

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.

He will be hoping to replicate the form he showed last season with Mansfield with Lincoln City, who are preparing to test themselves in League One after winning the League Two title last season.
