Nottingham Forest’s busy and expensive summer appears to be continuing with the club set to capture Algerian international striker Hilel Soudani in a £2.5m deal.
The deal, reported by DZFootball via Croatian news outlet 24Sata, is set to be wrapped up by the Reds, who have managed to convince the striker to reject deals in Europe and further by coming to England to join Aitor Karanka’s men.
The 30-year-old has bags of international experience after winning over 40 caps for his county, and he has been a regular scorer for current club Dinamo Zagreb, helping them to league and cup titles during his stint with the club.
Soudani appears to have been fairly prolific wherever he has been, and his average of one in two for his country further backs this up.
Forest are in the middle of something of a spending spree at the moment and looking to take the Championship by storm next term under manager Karanka. They have already smashed their transfer record by signing £13m man Joao Carvalho, while they are also in the hunt for an £8m move for Middlesbrough striker Patrick Bamford.
