Nottingham Forest may have the chance to sign former target Che Adams for a bargain price this summer, as per reports from Football Insider.
The Reds were reportedly interested in signing the Southampton forward in January, as Sabri Lamouchi looked to provide cover for leading goalscorer Lewis Grabban.
Adams was a wanted man in January; the 23-year-old joined the Saints from Birmingham City for £15m in the summer, on the back of scoring 22 goals for Blues in 2018/19.
Have these 15 Forest players been capped at senior international level?
Leeds were also admirers of Adams and had a reported £19m bid accepted for his signature, but a late change of heart from Ralph Hasenhuttl meant that an exit failed to materialise in January.
Adams’ move to St. Mary’s hasn’t really worked out as of yet. He’s failed to find the back of the net in 27 games, and has started only eight times in the Premier League.
Therefore, reports from Football Insider claim that the striker will be available for around £10m or less this summer, with a departure looking increasingly likely.
Forest moved onto different targets after missing out on Adams, signing Nuno da Costa from Strasbourg as well as bringing back Tyler Walker from his loan spell at Lincoln.
But here, via the Nottingham Forest News page on Facebook, we have a look at what fans are saying about Adams after hearing this latest news…
Jon Bridge: Can’t see us spending anything like that sort of dosh unless we went up. In which case he wouldn’t be on our list at all anyway. He’s an overly expensive champ striker.
Jon Bridge: Personally i would be trying very hard to get Lyle Taylor on a free and no doubt big wages.
Noel Holohan: Am I the only person thinking finances are going to be very tight unless we sell a few big names? possible season behind closed doors next year no ticket money no in stadium sales gear sales in shop way down?
Paul Tp Jenkinson: Can’t see it happening until we reduce wage bill first
Jonathan Hopkin: Sell carvalho and bring him in
