Nottingham Forest are reportedly now ‘working’ on signing Bayern Munich left-back Omar Richards and Liverpool right-back Neco Williams by ‘this weekend’.
The Lowdown: More incomings?
Forest confirmed the signing of central defender Moussa Niakhate from Mainz on Wednesday evening, and he becomes the club’s fourth new arrival of the summer window so far.
However, it does not seem as if their business is done there, as two new faces could be set to come through the doors by the weekend…
The Latest: Ornstein update
Taking to Twitter, The Athletic journalist David Ornstein has revealed that the City Ground outfit are now ‘working’ on bringing in both Richards and Williams, and it is ‘possible’ that deals could be in place by ‘this weekend’:
“Nottingham Forest working to sign 2 wing-backs – Liverpool’s Neco Williams for right + Omar Richards of Bayern Munich for left. Talks are over permanent transfers & it’s possible deals will be in place by this weekend.”
The Verdict: Exciting
These are very exciting times indeed for NFFC supporters, as Steve Cooper looks to properly shore up his squad ahead of being promoted up to the Premier League.
Should Nottingham Forest sign Richards?
Nonetheless, the latter will add necessary cover in the left-back position, while Williams will look to fill the void on the right-hand side left by Djed Spence, who returned to Middlesbrough after his loan spell last season.
