Nottingham Forest edge closer to 21-year-old signing

Nottingham Forest have agreed a deal in principle that would see Antalyaspor attacker Paul Mukairu join the Reds, as per a report from Turkish outlet Antalya Korfez.

Forest, who already bolstered their frontline with the addition of Aston Villa forward Keinan Davis this month, look set to bring another forward to The City Ground.

Mukairu, who has predominantly operated as a striker for the Turkish outfit this season, can also play on both wings.

The 21-year-old has chipped in with four goals this season for Antalyaspor, starting 14 times in the league in the process.

In terms of the deal itself, the initial report states that a £1.8 million figure has been put in place, with the Turkish side inserting a 20% sell-on clause.

Despite not enjoying the best of seasons thus far, Mukairu is still regarded as an exciting talent.

The verdict 

Despite scoring the most amount of goals outside the top six, Cooper evidently feels like he needs to strengthen his frontline this month, with Davis already arriving.

The club are also considering moves for Millwall’s Jed Wallace and MK Dons’ Scott Twine, which certainly suggests that Cooper views that he needs to bolster his attacking options in order to maintain a push for the play-offs. 

At 21 years of age, Mukairu is a player with great potential, meaning that he could be gradually eased into the side. 

Forest are progressing at a steady rate under Cooper, and now he has time to shape his squad, Forest have every chance of going on to see success this time out.
