‘£30+’ – Many Reading fans react as Nottingham Forest eye transfer raid for influential midfielder

Nottingham Forest have set their sights on highly-rated Reading midfielder Josh Laurent, according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon on Twitter.

Laurent, who joined the Berkshire club from Shrewsbury Town last summer, penned down a two-year contract on arrival and started all but one of Reading’s league games last time out.

Featuring in a variety of positions in midfield for The Royals, Laurent went on to win Reading’s Player of the Season award, after striking an excellent partnership with Andy Rinomhota in the middle of the park.

The 26-year-old proved throughout the season that he was just as competent operating as a defensive midfielder, as he was in the number 10 role.

Laurent scored three goals and chipped in with three assists during the 2020/21 campaign, and captained the side on the final day of the season during their 2-2 draw with Huddersfield Town.
