Nottingham Forest have ‘stepped up’ their pursuit of Hearts’ John Souttar ahead of the January transfer window, reports Football Insider.
Souttar. 25, has recently been linked with a host of Championship clubs.
The Scot is out of contract at the end of this campaign and has turned down the offer of a renewal from Hearts.
Now, Football Insider have revealed that Nottingham Forest recently sent scouts to watch Souttar in action for Hearts against Celtic earlier this month, as the Reds looking to up the ante in their pursuit of the Scot.
