Club respond as Nottingham Forest submit transfer bid for 21-year-old

Nottingham Forest have seen an opening bid rejected for Antalyaspor winger Paul Mukairu, as reported by Turkish outlet Ajansspor

The report states that The Reds have seen a £2 million bid rejected, with the Turkish club wanting at least £3 million for the 21-year-old’s services.

Nexus Sport reported yesterday that a move was close to being completed, but this latest update suggests that Forest need to improve their bid if they want to secure the services of the young Nigerian.

The Championship club have suffered the same fate as Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the year, who submitted a bid that did not meet Antalyaspor’s valuation.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan with Anderlecht, emerging as a first-team regular for the Belgian club. Mukairu scored four times and assisted a further four for Vincent Kompany’s side.

The verdict

The potential arrival of the young winger is certainly an exciting one for Forest fans to get behind. The fact that Spurs were an interested party no longer than six months ago is an indication that Mukairu possesses talent.

Forest need to pose more of a threat in front of goal, and the signing of an exciting, confident wideman will go a long way in achieving that objective.

It remains to be seen whether or not Forest decide to up the bid, but they are in a position where they know what it will take to strike a transfer agreement with the Turkish club.

Forest still need to strengthen in a couple of areas ahead of Tuesday’s deadline and adding attacking reinforcement is certainly one of those areas.
