Hibs striker Kevin Nisbet is being lined up for a summer transfer to English Championship club Brentford (Scottish Sun).

The Scotland international has scored 17 goals with eight assists in his first season in the Scottish Premiership. It’s earned him his international recognition and now Brentford are the latest club to join the race for his services.

The Bees are set to sell star striker Ivan Toney this summer, who has scored 30 goals in his first season at Brentford, the club secure in their promotion play-off place. He is poised to make a move to a current Premier League team, with West Ham one of the clubs said to be keen on the forward.

But there could be a domino effect for Hibs, with Nisbet now being tracked by Brentford as a potential replacement. The Easter Road club knocked back a seven-figure bid upwards of £2.5 million for Nisbet from Birmingham City in the winter transfer window and Brentford would need to offer similar money to force a move.
