Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Karagümrük winger Alassane Ndao this summer, according to Turkish journalist Yagiz Sabuncuoglu.
The Reds are still yet to make their first signing of the summer, but Chris Hughton will be keen to strengthen his squad with pre-season now underway.
Having bid farewell to the likes of Sammy Ameobi, Luke Freeman and Anthony Knockaert at the end of last season, there is scope to bring in a winger or two this summer.
According to Yagiz Sabuncuoglu, Karagümrük winger Alassane Ndao is on Forest’s radar, and official talks are believed to have begun between the two clubs.
The higher or lower Nottingham Forest transfer fee quiz – can you get 20/20?
Ndao scored 11 goals in 38 Super Lig appearances for Karagümrük last season, chipping in with a further nine assists from out wide.
The Senegalese winger now has a year left on his contract, and given his previous links with Evangelos Marinakis’ Olympiacos, it seems as if he is still on the hierarchy’s radar.
Ndao could be everything Forest are looking for this summer as they prepare for a new era off the pitch.
They let go of three wingers at the end of last season, with Knockaert and Freeman returning to their parent clubs after loan spells.
Ndao looks to be a strong, quick, powerful winger who can play on either flank, which would obviously give Chris Hughton options going forward.
He’s likely to cost a fair bit, though, which suggests that Forest perhaps have cash to spend as opposed to other clubs this summer.
