Nottingham Forest: Talks ongoing for Morgan Gibbs-White

Nottingham Forest: Talks ongoing for Morgan Gibbs-White -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest remain in talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers over a move for Morgan Gibbs-White, according to journalist Rudy Galetti.

The Lowdown: Interest in Gibbs-White

The 22-year-old has received heavy interest from a number of Premier League clubs this summer, with the most prominent speculation emerging from the City Ground.

On Friday, The Athletic reported that Wolves had rejected Steve Cooper’s latest offer for the England under-21 international,, which totalled £35m (£25m upfront plus £10m in add-ons).

Forest are said to have made it clear that this was their final offer, but the Old Gold have insisted that Gibbs-White is not for sale. However, The Athletic claim that conversations are expected to continue if the proposal is improved.

The Latest: Galetti’s news

Galetti has shared an update on Forest’s pursuit of Gibbs-White, suggesting that a deal could still be struck.

Taking to Twitter, the journalist claimed: “Morgan #GibbsWhite: talks between #NottinghamForest and #Wolves are still ongoing. #NFFC

“The attacking midfielder could leave #WWFC once again.”

The Verdict: Great signing

The 22-year-old had a fantastic campaign in the Championship last season; he added 11 goals and nine assists to Sheffield United’s promotion push, scoring and providing an assist for the Blades in the play-offs as they lost out on penalties to Forest.

Averaging 2.5 shots, 1.6 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per game, Gibbs-White was rated the team’s most impressive player of the season, averaging an impressive 7.14 rating (via WhoScored).

Dubbed an ‘outstanding’ midfielder by former Barnsley head coach Poya Asbaghi, it is easy to see why Cooper is so keen on adding the midfielder to his squad.

However, with Wolves proving resistant in negotiations, this could be a difficult deal to get over the line for Forest.
