Nottinghamshire Live – Nottinghamshire, Forward will reportedly head to City Ground after completing international duty.
Striker Karim Ansarifard has reportedly said he has agreed to a deal with Nottingham Forest.
Reds boss Aitor Karanka last week confirmed the Iran international, who is a free agent after being released from his contract at Olympiacos, is a target for the club.
And, according to reports in his homeland, the 28-year-old is on the verge of moving to the City Ground.
It is claimed Ansarifard has finalized a deal with Forest and will head to the UK to complete formalities after today’s match against Uzbekistan in Tashkent.
Ansarifard is currently on duty with his national team, with Carlos Queiroz’s side due to play a friendly at the Bunyodkor Stadium
Karanka previously said of his interest in the forward: “He is another player with a lot of experience. He has played in the Champions League, he is a good player and another good character.
“We had another Iranian player last season, in Ashkan Dejagah, and he impressed me – he was very good.
“Let us see what is happening with him (Ansarifard).”
The Reds have made 16 signings so far this summer, with midfielders Claudio Yacob and Panagiotis Tachtsidis the most recent additions as the duo put pen to paper on deals last week.
