Nottingham Forest: Reporter shares Neal Maupay latest

Nottingham Forest: Reporter shares Neal Maupay latest -Follow up

TalkSPORT reporter Alex Crook has shared the latest involving the Nottingham Forest pursuit of Brighton & Hove Albion striker Neal Maupay. 

The lowdown: Career so far

Signed by Brentford from Ligue 1 outfit Saint-Etienne, Maupay directly contributed to 55 goals in just 91 outings for the London club prior to sealing a move to the south coast.

The 26-year-old former France youth international has since scored 27 times in 109 outings for Brighton, including a ten-goal 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

However, having failed to play a single minute in the opening two fixtures, it appears a move could be on the cards and one well-informed onlooker has provided an update on the situation surrounding Maupay…

The latest: ‘They are waiting…’

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Crook – a transfer specialist for talkSPORT – has claimed that Brighton and the player’s reps are in no rush to sell, potentially leaving the Reds waiting.

He said: “What I do know is that Maupay’s camp are not rushing to get him signed on at Forest. I think they are waiting to see what other interest there is.”

The verdict: One more needed

Even despite the arrival of Taiwo Awoniyi and Emmanuel Dennis this summer, the departures of Lewis Grabban, Nuno Da Costa and Keinan Davis have left room for at least one more striker addition before the window closes, potentially alongside the arrival of cultured Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.

Last season, Maupay – who was hailed as ‘quality’ by Irish broadcaster Nathan Murphy in September 2021 – scored nine times and provided two assists in 35 appearances across all competitions, further proof of an ability to make the grade as a goalscorer at the elite level.

Valued at £16.2million and in the final 12 months of a deal at Brighton (Transfermarkt), getting this deal over the line for a mooted £15million would be a superb capture for Forest and would allow Steve Cooper the firepower to attack the campaign in full.
