Sky Bet Championship Nottingham Forest have reportedly offered to pay Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux a fee of €4.5m for Nigeria striker Josh Maja.
Maja is yet to make an appearance for Bordeaux this season and is keen to leave the club before the end of the transfer window.
The forward joined Les Girondis from Sunderland in January 2019.
He spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham who were relegated to the championship at the end of the campaign.
Forest are currently bottom of the Championship table after five games and are said to be keen to bring in a striker before Tuesday’s 11pm transfer deadline.
