Nottingham Forest are reportedly lining up a loan move for a Manchester City goalkeeper.
Aro Muric has been made available on loan, according to the Daily Mail, and a string of clubs have already shown interest.
The 20-year-old was City’s second choice for the majority of the season with Claudio Bravo being out injured, but upon his return, he will regain the number two spot.
Forest appear to be leading the line; manager Martin O’Neill and keeping coach Seamus McDonough allegedly went to Bulgaria on Monday to see him play for Kosovo.
Muric has a Carabao Cup winners medal to his name, playing five games throughout the tournament, including being involved in a winning penalty shoot-out versus Leicester in the quarters.
He only has 12 months remaining on his deal at City, but Guardiola has said he is likely to receive an extension offer, according to the previous report from the Mail.
While the pool to asses Muric’s talents is limited, it is clear that he is a more than capable goalkeeper.
At only 20 years, and having played one professional league game, it will be interesting to see whether O’Neill sees him keeping Pantilimon out of the squad.
Muric looked more than capable during his performances in the Carabao Cup, and it is probably those performances which have inspired Forest to show interest.
If Muric turns out to be a good bit of business then there might be potential for a full-time deal with the keeper, baring in mind his contract situation, and the likelihood of him getting into City’s first team fold.
