🚨JUST IN : Nottingham Forest is reportedly expressing interest in signing a highly-regarded young player who has been outperforming the club’s current star


With Marko Stamenič and Eric da Silva Moreira already secured, Nottingham Forest have reportedly turned their attention to the Championship star, who outscored Morgan Gibbs-Whitt last season.

Nottingham Forest transfer news

It has been a busy start to the summer window for Forest, with the arrivals of Stamenic and Moreira and the reported possible departures of Orel Mangala and Moussa Niakhate in order to meet the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

These sales should go a long way towards avoiding further Premier League punishment following last season’s points deduction and perhaps even make room for further arrivals.

For the first time since signing for Forest, Moreira told the club’s official website: “I’m really happy to be here. I’ve heard a lot about the Premier League and a lot about a lot of clubs, so I’m very happy to be at Nottingham Forest, especially at the club , which has a great tradition, just like my old club.

“Me and my family are really excited about this new challenge and I can’t wait to get started and get to know the city, the people and everything about the club.”

The 18-year-old winger may not be the last teenager to arrive at the City Ground this summer. According to John Percy of The Telegraph , Nottingham Forest want to sign Jordan James from Birmingham this summer. The 19-year-old midfielder enjoyed some impressive moments last season, although his boyhood club were relegated from the Championship and could now be rewarded with a move to the Premier League.

A player who is likely to get even better, James could be an ideal partner for Morgan Gibbs-White if he moves to the Midlands in the coming months.

Rolls Royce James can improve on Gibbs-White

At such a young age, James could walk into the current Forest squad alongside Gibbs-White for years to come should the latter stay this summer. As the Midlands club look to build a squad that can move into the comfort of mid-table while avoiding Premier League penalties for profit and sustainability, players of James’ caliber represent an ideal proposition.

With a similar goal threat to Gibbs-White, Forest would have a real partnership at the heart of their midfield if they can seal James’ signature this summer, and perhaps one that will ensure survival as soon as possible.

With those numbers, it’s no surprise that James has received plenty of praise from Jordan Webber, who described the teenager as the “Rolls Royce” of a midfielder at X.

Showing signs he is ready to make the move to the Premier League, the Birmingham graduate could be heading to the Midlands this summer.
