Nottingham Forest are reported to be in "pole position" to sign Dinamo Zabreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic.
The Reds are in the market for a replacement to Dean Henderson after he picked up a muscle injury. The Manchester United loanee is set to be sidelined for four to six weeks after a scan revealed he had suffered a grade two tear in his thigh.
Having reportedly identified Livakovic as a replacement, Forest are said to be one of several Premier League clubs to be interested in his signing. The 28-year-old stood out in the winter World Cup while representing Croatia.

According to Croatian outlet Germanijak, Livakovic is a "wanted man" by many clubs but Forest are claimed to be in "pole position" to secure his signing, though Villarreal are also "still there."
Zagreb are claimed to be wanting €10million (£9m) and "not any less" for their player, but those interested have so far offered "between seven and eight million euros." The Croatia international has spent the last seven years at Zagreb, racking up 262 appearances and keeping 122 clean sheets.
