Nottingham Forest: Reds submit late bid for Ludovic Ajorque

Nottingham Forest: Reds submit late bid for Ludovic Ajorque -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have submitted a ‘last-gasp offer’ to sign Strasbourg striker Ludovic Ajorque, according to reliable journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Attracting interest

The 28-year-old still has two years remaining on his deal with the French giants, but has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League for the majority of the summer.

Wolves were reported to have made a bid for him but have now signed Sasa Kalajdzic, whilst Everton have also been credited with an interest, but the Reds now appear to be coming in with the intention of hijacking any potential deal.

The Latest: Forest make Ajorque offer

Taking to Twitter, O’Rourke revealed that Forest have made a proposal for Ajorque, but are set to face competition for his signature. He wrote:

“Nottingham Forest are making a last-gasp offer for Strasbourg striker Ludovic Ajorque who is also a target for Crystal Palace and West Ham.”

The Verdict: Surridge alternative

Sam Surridge is being linked with a late switch to Championship side Middlesbrough, so Steve Cooper will need to be on the lookout for a replacement, and Ajorque would be a welcome addition.

The 6 foot 4 forward, dubbed ‘remarkable’ by former Strasbourg manager Julien Stephan, has made 62 goal contributions (45 goals, 17 assists) in 127 career Ligue 1 appearances, via WhoScored.

A player with this kind of return will be exactly the profile the boss wants to recruit, and whilst the deal is most likely only a loan, Ajorque could play a significant role in helping keep Forest in the top-flight.
