The Premier League newbies and Betis are claimed to be in the early stages of discussions regarding a transfer.

An agreement between the two clubs has not been reached as of yet.

Forest see Moreno as potential cover at wing-back, with the versatile 29-year-old also able to play further up the pitch as a left-winger.
