BRENTFORD are weighing up a move for youngsters from some of Europe's top clubs.
Nicky Forster, who has been confirmed as boss until the end of the season, is still looking to bolster his squad as he bids to maintain his unbeaten start to life in the hotseat.
And the club have widened their search to overseas, with players from Sporting Lisbon, Inter Milan, Ajax, Rosenborg and PSV Eindhoven on the radar.
First-team coach Mark Warburton , who helped bring loanees Adam Reed and Nathan Byrne to Griffin Park, said: "I've spent the last few months working on a project involving some of the top sides in Europe.
"Their academies include players up to 21 years of age, so that's a market we can hopefully tap in to.
"There's one or two diamonds who could do a job for us and help them as well."
Forster is stepping up his search for new recruits this week after being the green light to stay in TW8.
However, the 37-year-old insists he isn't after a striker, despite ruling himself out of a return to the fold.
"We always like lots of striker, but we have a wealth of them," he said.
"We've got boys like Nicholas Bignall and Lewis Grabban who can play on the flanks, but their preferred roles are through the middle.
"We have options up there."
But the veteran striker is hopeful of bringing Reed back to the club after he returned to Sunderland with a groin problem.
He added: ""Adam broke down again in training last Friday, so he's gone back to Sunderland to be assessed by them."
