Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton has refused to be drawn on potential transfers for Harry Wilson and Anthony Knockaert.
Newcastle's Christian Atsu and West Brom's Kamil Grosiki are also in contention.
Hughton says he understands why Knockaert has been linked given their work together at Brighton, when they won promotion to the Premier League.
However, he said it would be unwise for him to be drawn into conversations about specific players who belong to other clubs, with the Telegraph reporting a loan deal for Knockaert
