Report: Nottingham Forest make late £3m bid to sign 'quality' player who Steve Cooper really wants
The never-ending list of players arriving at the City Ground could still grow as deadline day approaches.
Primarily a right winger, Bowler is a left-footed wide player, who tends to cut inside.
The 23-year-old is very skilful, and opened the scoring in their 3-3 draw with Bristol City on Saturday.
It was Bowler’s second goal of the season, after providing ten goal contributions for the Tangerines last season.
Forest make £3m Bowler bid
Despite Nottingham Forest signing 18 players this summer, none of them are traditional wingers.
Cooper tends to set his side up with two wing-backs to provide width when attacking.
All three of these players are comfortable in possession out wide but Bowler offers a different option.
Neco Williams struggled at times at right wing-back defensively, and Bowler could offer him some much-needed cover.
He’s naturally a left-back, but has been deployed as a winger before and could mirror Bowler on the opposite wing.
However, Forest are currently the only side to bid for Bowler, and will hope it stays that way as they look to secure another target.
