Nottingham Forest are set to renew their interest in Girona striker Christhian Stuani in the summer transfer window, as they look to strengthen ahead of a potential promotion push next season.
The Nottingham Post state that Stuani was previously a target for Forest when Aitor Karanka was manager at The City Ground, with the same publication reporting on a story from Mexican publication Radio Formula, that claims Forest are one of a number of sides interested in the Uruguayan international.
The report also claims that Spanish giants Barcelona, Scottish champions Celtic and Mexican side Monterrey are all interested in Stuani.
The 32-year-old striker has 42 goals in just 68 appearances in all competitions during two season with Girona, but was unable to prevent them from being relegated from the Spanish top flight at the end of this season, which could cut his asking price significantly.
Stuani does have previous experience in England, having made 68 appearances and scored 16 goals in all competitions for Middlesbrough between 2015 and 2017 before his move to Spain.
This could be an outstanding signing for Forest.
They are going to need more sources of goals if they are to compete for promotion next season, and Stuani is a man bang in form recently.
Girona’s relegation also means the deal would be more affordable for Forest, but it still seems hard to see them pulling it off given who they are competing with for his signature.
