Earlier this month, Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper confirmed Taiwo Awoniyi has undergone groin surgery and will be out of action “for months”.


Awoniyi’s absence is likely to force the Tricky Trees to look for a new striker in January and Udinese’s Keinan Davis could be an option for them.


That’s according to Messaggero Veneto, who state Nottingham Forest ‘like’ the 25-year-old.


The Englishman joined the Serie A side from Watford in the last window and prior to that, the report says Cooper’s side had looked at him.


Davis is yet to make his debut for the Italian club and has been sidelined since September with a calf injury. He was initially expected to return in October but that didn’t happen.


Messaggero Veneto say the player is now training separately, because he ‘seems behind’ in his efforts to regain full fitness. That hasn’t stopped him from being considered by English clubs, where it’s claimed ‘signs are expected for a return’ in the winter market.


Only Nottingham Forest are mentioned in the report as they still like the attacker, after looking at him in the summer.


It’s not yet clear if the Tricky Trees would make an offer and if they table one, Udinese could make it relatively easy for them to secure his services. Should Davis leave, the Serie A side have identified AS Roma’s Andrea Belotti as the candidate to replace him.
