The Daily Mail is reporting that Nottingham Forest are hoping to hear some good news this week. They suggest Karim Ansarifard will finally get the clearance necessary to sign for the club and start playing games.
The Iranian international, who scored at the World Cup in the summer, agreed terms with the club at the start of September, but Forest were denied permission to register him due to work permit issues.
Ansarifard, who scored 18 goals in 27 games for Greek side Olympiakos last season, is a free agent after ending his deal in Piraeus just before the end of the transfer window.
Nottingham Forest will hopefully have him in action for the club soon and he could be a massive new signing.
Ansarifard has a brilliant goalscoring record. Strong and fast, he is no doubt built for Championship football.
At the moment, Nottingham Forest are undoubtedly in the promotion picture and having the Iranian on board would take some of the goalscoring responsibility away from Lewis Grabban.
If Forest boss Aitor Karanka could get both men firing, then Nottingham Forest will look like bankers for the top six.
