Algerian forward Hilal Soudani will be allowed to leave Dinamo Zagreb for English football, according to Croatian media outlet 24 Sata.
The 30-year-old, who has just become a league winner in the Croatian League, will be able to leave Zagreb for England once they have secured Champions League football according to the report.
Soudani has enjoyed a huge amount of success in Croatia, winning several trophies and playing European football on a regular basis.
He helped Algeria reach the last 16 of the World Cup in 2014, where the Desert Foxes narrowly lost to Germany in extra-time.
Nottingham Forest have been made favourites to sign the man who can play as a left winger or as a striker, after failing to land him in the summer.
Fellow Algerian international Adlene Guedioura currently plays for Forest, which could have a positive bearing on the transfer.
Highlights for Soudani at Dinamo include beating Arsenal in the group stages of the Champions League, and winning the Croatian League four times.
He has also enjoyed success in Algeria and Portugal, winning trophies domestically there too. He would be a fantastic player for the Championship and take the league by a storm.
Aitor Karanka’s side will reportedly have to pay £2.6million if they want to land the player this summer.
