Huddersfield Town will be eager to keep hold of Lewis O’Brien during what remains of this summer transfer window, with the Terriers setting their sights on promotion once again.
The extremely talented midfielder played an integral role for the Yorkshire outfit last time out as they narrowly missed out on promotion in the playoffs-off final.
After edging the Terriers to a spot in the Premier League, the Reds are now hoping to take O’Brien with them, as per a report from journalist Alan Nixon.
The report states that the Reds are readying a £10 million bid for the 23-year-old, who certainly possesses the required abilities to cut it in the Premier League.
Nixon also claims within the same report that Forest are casting their eyes over Terriers left-back Harry Toffolo, with the 26-year-old also playing a vital role in Huddersfield’s eventual third-place finish.
