Forest turned their attention to Vlachodimos after Dean Henderson, who enjoyed a successful loan switch at the City Ground last season, completed a £20million switch to Crystal Palace from Manchester United.
Forest signed goalkeeper Matt Turner from Arsenal earlier in the window and Vlachodimos could provide competition for the USA international.

Nottingham Forest have reportedly agreed a deal to Benfica keeper Odysseas Vlachodimos
The Greek keeper played 34 games in the league last season and helped Benfica win the title
Vlachodimos was not included in the Eagles' match day squad for their past two league games against Estrela Amadora and Gil Vicente respectively.
The Greece international has made 225 appearances for the Portuguese giants after joining Benfica from Panathinaikos in 2018.
He played 34 games in the Portuguese top flight last season as Benfica claimed the title.
Vlachodimos was also linked with Manchester United as they looked to sign an additional shot-stopper to compete with Andre Onana.
United wanted back-up goalkeepers as Dean Henderson - who spent a successful loan spell at Nottingham Forest, moved to Crystal Palace.
