Nottingham Forest: Reds have ‘made an offer’ for Amadou Onana

Nottingham Forest: Reds have ‘made an offer’ for Amadou Onana -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have reportedly ‘made an offer’ to try and sign Lille defensive midfielder Amadou Onana this summer.

The Lowdown: Busy transfer window

The newly-promoted Premier League outfit have already made three solid additions in the summer transfer window so far, securing the loan signing of goalkeeper Dean Henderson from Manchester United along with deals for striker Taiwo Awoniyi and right-back Giulian Biancone.

They are also closing in on the signing of defender Moussa Niakhate from Bundesliga club Mainz, who looks set to become their fourth summer signing already, and it does not look like they will stop there.

The Latest: Onana ‘offer’

Taking to Twitter, reliable journalist Sacha Tavolieri has revealed that Steve Cooper’s side have ‘also made an offer’ for Onana, but it has been ‘refused’ by Lille and his entourage.

The reporter tweeted: “Among the clubs interested in #PremierLeague, the club of #NottinghamForest has also made an offer to Amadou #Onana. A proposal refused by #DiablesRouges and his entourage.”

The Verdict: Go again

Even though their first offer has been pushed back, Forest should look to go in with an improved offer for Onana.

A player who has been courted by the likes of Liverpool and West Ham United, the 20-year-old certainly seems a ‘huge talent‘, in the words of talent scout Jacek Kulig.

Should Nottingham Forest sign Onana?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With 42 appearances across all competitions last season, he was a mainstay in Lille’s line-up, featuring in all eight of their Champions League games (Transfermarkt), while his average of 1.5 tackles per match was the sixth-highest in the squad (WhoScored).

His impressive performances earned him his first senior cap for the Belgium national team in June, so this is a potential transfer which should have Forest fans greatly excited.
