Fabrizio Romano shares exciting Danilo to Nottingham Forest update
Nottingham Forest are closing in on the signing of Palmeiras midfielder Danilo.
Earlier this week, The Athletic reported that the Reds have agreed a fee of €20million (£17.8million) for the 21-year-old.
Multiple other outlets and sources, such as Fabrizio Romano, have also been covering the Danilo to Forest transfer.
Romano tweeted “here we go” on Friday night, saying Forest and Palmeiras had signed off on the deal.
Danilo was then set to fly to England on Saturday for medical tests ahead of signing a long-term contract at the City Ground.
On Saturday morning, Romano posted a fresh update on Danilo to Forest.
He claimed that medical tests would be scheduled within the next 24 to 48 hours for Danilo.
Statement of intent from Forest
Well done to Nottingham Forest for pulling off this signing. What a statement of intent.
Danilo is one of the most exciting young midfielders in South America.
He is excellent on the ball, a brilliant passer, and has superb composure.
This should make him an excellent fit for the Premier League.
The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and AS Monaco were reportedly hoping to land Danilo.
Instead, he’ll be joining the former back-to-back European Cup winners, now back in the big time after over 20 years of hurt.
Forest also deserve credit for sticking with Steve Cooper when many other directors would’ve likely panicked and opted to bring in someone else.
The Reds are currently 15th in the table and, while they’re not out of danger, there are eight clubs all in or just around the bottom three.
Forest are also in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, testament to their quality and progress over the past few months.
The City Ground side is putting together a great squad, and Danilo will no doubt add huge quality to it.
