Nottingham Forest: Reds’ offer for Aster Vranckx revealed

Nottingham Forest: Reds’ offer for Aster Vranckx revealed -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have made an offer to sign VfL Wolfsburg midfielder Aster Vranckx this summer, report L’Equipe (via Sport Witness). 

The lowdown: Rise to prominence

Signed from Belgian outfit KV Mechelen in 2021, Vranckx has gone from strength to strength since arriving in Germany, having made 47 first-team appearances for his previous employers, where he came through the academy system.

The 19-year-old Belgium youth international made 28 outings last season for the Bundesliga side, scoring twice whilst operating centrally and in wide areas to showcase impressive versatility.

Having previously been linked to Vranckx, a fresh report emerging from France has claimed that Forest did more than just show their interest…

The latest: Offer made

As per L’Equipe, translated by SW, the three-cap Under 21 starlet is understood to have ‘received offers’ from Nottingham Forest, Fiorentina and Bologna this summer.

It’s claimed that Lille are also attentive to the situation surrounding Vranckx and a move could still be on the cards before the end of the transfer window.

The report makes no mention of the details of the offer for the youngster – who was billed as a ‘very exciting’ prospect by football talent scout Jacek Kulig – but previous reports have claimed that he could be available for around €8million (£6.7million).

The lowdown: Try again

Albeit the midfield department has already been strengthened with the signings of Lewis O’Brien, Orel Mangala and Cheikhou Kouyate, adding a supremely talented and versatile operator such as Vranckx to Steve Cooper’s ranks would be a significant capture.

Sharing a similar stylistic likeness to proven Premier League performers such as Conor Gallagher, Joelinton and Jeffrey Schlupp (FBref), the teenage Belgian seemingly has all the attributes required to make the grade in the English top flight.

Earning a reported £15,000 per week, signing Vranckx at the aforementioned asking price should be an affordable venture for the City Ground hierarchy and Dane Murphy even alongside the rumoured move for Neal Maupay.
