Report: Nottingham Forest want Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo

Nottingham Forest are one of three Championship sides chasing Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo, according to a report from Goal.

Ojo’s future looks set to lie away from Anfield. Goal reports that the 23-year-old will be allowed to leave on loan or on a permanent basis during this window.

And there appears to be a number of teams interested in signing the former Rangers loanee. According to Goal, Forest, Reading and Huddersfield Town all want the youngster.

It remains to be seen what kind of move the trio pursue.

But Liverpool are in a strong position to demand a hefty fee for a permanent deal having agreed a new five-year contract with Ojo in 2018 (via BBC Sport).

In truth, it appears that signing Ojo permanently would be a gamble for the likes of Forest and Huddersfield.

He struggled at Rangers last season. He scored just one league goal in 19 appearances. The wide-man did provide five assists in the Scottish Premiership, but it seemed telling that there seemed to be little clamour amongst the club’s fans for a further move this summer.

A loan may prove to be an inspired piece of business. There is clearly a talented player there. And Ovie Ejaria’s outstanding form at Reading last season shows that a Liverpool youngster who underwhelmed at Rangers can still be a game-changer in the Championship.
