Watford are reportedly considering a move for highly-rated Nottingham Forest winger Joe Lolley.

The 26-year-old has impressed in the Championship this season and the Hornets have been linked with a move for the £5million-rated attacker in the January transfer window.

Lolley has scored seven goals this season for Forest including one in last night's dramatic 5-5 draw at Aston Villa. He also provided four assists during the thriller and has attracted the interest of Watford and Cardiff City following his move from Huddersfield Town in January.

The attacker is a key part of Forest's promotion plans under Aitor Karanka but could be tempted by a return to the Premier League if the Hornets come in with a firm offer in January.
