Nottingham Forest have been linked with a move for Werder Bremen striker Marvin Ducksch, according to reports in his native Germany.
With the January transfer window fast approaching, Steve Cooper and his backroom staff will be making plans for potential targets. Striker may be an area where the Forest boss looks to strengthen with all three of the club’s forwards ruled out through injury just a few weeks ago.
According to Sport Bild (via Get Football News Germany), Forest are ‘very keen’ on making a move for Ducksch. It is claimed that Werder Bremen could be open to selling the 29-year-old in January if the offer is right, with a €15 million (£13m) fee mentioned.
Ducksch has scored five goals and provided three assists in 11 Bundesliga appearances so far this season. His form earned him a debut call-up to the German national team for the current international break, where he came on as a late substitute in losses against Turkey (2-3) and Austria (2-0).
The forward will have three-and-a-half years remaining on his contract when the January transfer window comes around, meaning Breman will be under no pressure to sell. And they could be reluctant to let the Ducksch go before bringing in a replacement following the summer sale of Niclas Füllkrug to Borussia Dortmund.
