Following on from the news earlier that Blues had a bid of 5million accepted, it looks like Grabban is on his way to Forest as a 6million bid has now been agreed, according to BBC Nottingham. The 30-year-old is attracting interest following his impressive stints at Sunderland and Aston Villa last se

Does anyone else think that £6 mill for a 30 year old striker (even a proven one at this level) is a bit steep?

It's certainly at the high end for a 30-year-old, but he does have a consistent track record of scoring goals in the lower leagues. Personally, I'd rather we spent a couple of million more and went for Jack Marriott and Marcus Maddison, they're much younger and would have a resale value, plus maybe even a combined wage lower than what Grabban would be asking for.

Forest must be the worst negotiators in the world.

Why would they offer £6 million if we have had £5 mill accepted?

It's like that scene in Only Fools and Horse when Del and Trigger are negotiating and Trig outbids himself.

Or the 'source' leaking to the press that forest has had a £6m bid has got it wrong and the price is actually £5m?

Nixon is adamant that both clubs have had a £5m bid accepted and it does make you wonder why Forest would bid £6m when £5M is an acceptable figure. It's wages they'd need to 'out-muscle' us on not that Transfer Fee.

why don't we go and ask about Gayle at Newcastle he don't get game time but probably the best striker ever in the championship ,even a hefty loan fee would be worth it

Probably the best ever striker in the Championship :D

Jordan Rhodes and Ross McCormack (before becoming a DVB ) are the two best relatively recent Championship strikers.

The fact we’re even in the market for a striker like Grabban is encouraging.

Didnt think we had that much to spend or FFP restrictionis would allow it.

Oh don’t get me wrong he’s a very good player I just thought the statement was a bit farfetched :D

I presume he’d probably cost about the same as Grabban.

As regards Grabban seems his best spells were his 2 most recent loans, perhaps trying to impress?

Yes i think its to much for him much rather they spend it on Hugill from west ham bit of a handfull in this division at preston probably not good enough for prem but big strong lad leading the line with adams/vassell could be very good KRO.

Of we get Granban in I will be chuffed.

Bottom line is that we have been under the impression since January that we are in breach of FFP and might have to scrape the barrel a bit.

Thinking about it though,would Monk have come to us if he knew we were that deep in the cak with no money to spend?.

Why Monk should bid for this attacker as Grabban’s move to Forest edges closer

The transfer rumours are certainly hotting up as the Blues boss readies his troops for the new Championship campaign. News emerged earlier today that Blues have had a bid accepted for Lewis Grabban, but wages will be a turning point for the former Sunderland loanee. If you had said to any Blues fan

The guy will be looking for his last big contract and wont have resale value... Deffo trying to impress thumbs up

Prefer the peterborough duo personally. I imagine Marriott & Maddison will cost quiet a bit more but young, hungry, the chemistry is there... if we have cash to spend on firepower thats were we should be looking imo :)

Agreed.
Don’t know that much about Marriot but Maddison’s YouTube clip makes him look like a poor mans Ronaldo.
But if we did get Grabban it wouldn’t be a disaster.

I'd feel a bit...dirty, if I'm honest. Plus I'm not entirely convinced £5m on one player is what we need. I would be looking for several savvy purchases from league one if we've got that kind of money.

I'd rather have Waghorn or Marriot, I thought Monk wanted young and hungry players.
Grabban doesn't fit in with that

Mayor said it was a gift to Monk from the owners. I'm glad it's failed. If it's designed to piss Villa off we should buy one of their younger players for a bargain, not sure who their good youngsters are though.
