Nottingham Forest: Reds eye up Alassane Plea signing

Nottingham Forest: Reds eye up Alassane Plea signing -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest are reportedly ready to battle Everton for the signing of Borussia Monchengladbach forward Alassane Plea this summer.

The Lowdown: Plea excels in Germany

The 29-year-old has matured into a formidable player for MoncheNgladbach, catching the eye with a string of influential performances last season.

Plea scored nine goals and chipped in with six assists in the Bundesliga in 2021/22, with former Germany midfielder Gunter Netzer once describing him as ‘extraordinary’.

It now looks as though a move to the Premier League could be in order, following an interesting update.

The Latest: Forest eye up summer move

According to RMC Sport [via Sport Witness], Forest have joined Everton in showing an interest in Plea, whose current deal expires next year.

That means he could be available for €8m (£6.7m) this summer, with the report claiming that negotiations are underway with both English clubs, along with Ligue 1 duo Marseille and Nice.

Which one of these kit manunfactuers have never produced Forest shirts?

The Verdict: Could be a great addition

At 29, Plea isn’t necessarily someone Steve Cooper would call a long-term signing, but he is a player who could have an immediate impact at the City Ground.

Last season’s aforementioned goal and assist tally speaks volumes about the Frenchman’s quality, as do 38 and 36 goals in the Bundesliga and Ligue 1 respectively.

Are you hoping that Forest sign Tavernier?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Forest will need a regular supply of goals in order to stave off the threat of relegation next season, and Plea could be the man to further make them an attacking force following the midweek arrival of Jesse Lingard.
