Forest launch audacious swoop for Chelsea forward



New Nottingham Forest boss Aitor Karanka has made an ambitious loan bid for Chelsea starlet Charly Musonda, according to the Telegraph. 

Chelsea have cleared the forward to leave the club on a temporary basis in the January window and Karanka feels like he can get a deal done for the 21-year-old.

Forest will face competition from Premier League sides including strugglers Bournemouth, Newcastle and Watford for any potential deal for the Belgian Under-21 star.

Musonda’s only goal so far this season came against Forest, who beat Arsenal 4-2 in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend and inflicted Arsene Wenger’s first ever defeat at that stage of the competition.

The Verdict

Musonda would be a real coup for Karanka, especially if he managed to beat competition from the Premier League’s bottom half to bring the Belgian into the second tier.

I don’t see him pulling it off but if he could, it would be an outstanding deal.
