'Negotiations almost completed': Fabrizio Romano has just confirmed Nottingham Forest are close to another signing
Nottingham Forest are close to signing Brighton and Hove Albion striker, Neal Maupay, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The striker is set to become yet another summer signing for the Reds, who have shelled out more than £100m since winning promotion in the hope of maintaining their Premier League status. Maupay will join players like Jesse Lingard, Emmanuel Dennis, and Dean Henderson as impressive new additions at the City Ground.
Romano has taken to Twitter this evening to give the latest on Maupay to Forest, and it seems a deal is all but done for the striker.
Maupay has 26 goals in his Premier League career so far and has been a key player for Brighton in terms of them establishing themselves in the top tier.
Formerly of Brentford, the Seagulls paid around £20m to sign Maupay but it appears that Graham Potter is more than happy to see the striker leave. Indeed, Potter spoke about Maupay after today’s game with Newcastle and hinted that a move away from the AMEX was on the agenda.
Forest take on West Ham United tomorrow in front of an expectant and eager City Ground crowd. The Reds lost their opening PL fixture of the season.
TBR’s View: Maupay Can Help Forest But There Are Questions
The problem here is that while Neal Maupay has Premier League experience, he isn’t exactly the 20 goal a season man so many clubs crave.
Sure, Maupay will do a decent job and can compliment the other attacking players Forest have signed this summer.
But there are questions over attitude, goals, and discipline when it comes to Maupay, and Steve Cooper will be hoping he can get the best out of the striker.
