Championship club Nottingham Forest are understood to be interested in making a summer move for Greek striker Dimitris Diamantakos according to the Nottingham Post.

The Midlands club are set to come out of their transfer embargo in the summer and Forest are looking to boost their attacking options ahead of next season with Diamantakos believed to be one of the players being considered.

The 23 year old Piraeus born forward currently plays in the German Bundesliga second tier with Karlsruher SC and has netted six goals in 19 appearances for KSC. Diamantakos is currently on a season long loan from parent club Olympiakos and the player could be available for around £1 million in the summer with Karlsruher SC having an option to bid for the player.

Diamantakos has spent a large portion of his loan spell at the Wildparkstadion on the sidelines after suffering a catalogue of injury problems but has impressed Karlsruher SC coach Markus Kaurzinski upon his return to first team action.

Nottingham Forest’s poor season has not been helped by the club’s lack of goals with just 36 league goals scored in 41 league matches to date and although star striker Britt Assombalonga is now returning to fitness, the club remain short of fire power.

Forest could face competition from rival Championship clubs for the player’s signature with Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday also recently linked with the player.
