Nottingham Forest set to turn attentions to 22-year-old after seeing seven-figure bid rejected

Nottingham Forest look set to pursue Güven Yalçın after missing out on Paul Mukairu, according to Lider Gazete.

Chris Hughton is in the market for attacking reinforcements before the end of the transfer window as he looks to add quality in the final third.

The Reds were among the lowest scorers in the Championship last season, scoring 37 goals in 46 games, and have started this season with four defeats from four matches.

Forest looked to be interested in signing Antalyaspor forward Paul Mukairu, and are said to have tabled a €1.75million offer for the player.

But after the Turkish club turned that bid down, Forest now look set to move onto another target in Besiktas forward Güven Yalçın.

The report adds that Forest are “expected” to add Yalçın to their squad on loan before the transfer window closes next week.

Yalçın came through the ranks at Bayer Leverkusen before moving to Besiktas in 2018. The 22-year-old has since made 69 appearances for the club, scoring 14 goals.

He made 13 appearances in the Turkish Super League last season, scoring only once.

The Verdict

Yalçın looks like an interesting player who Forest could probably do with.

Lyle Taylor and Lewis Grabban are both getting old and have both struggled for goals in recent seasons, so a young striker like Yalçın is needed.

But it seems bizarre that it’s another loan deal, given that Forest look set to bring in Max Lowe and have already brought in three loanees. They need to start making some permanent additions, I believe.
