Nottingham Forest: Reds reignite interest in Maxwel Cornet

Nottingham Forest: Reds reignite interest in Maxwel Cornet -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have reignited their interest in Burnley winger Maxwel Cornet this summer, according to a fresh transfer rumour which has emerged.

The Lowdown: Cornet on the move?

The Ivorian joined the Clarets last year, and while they were eventually relegated to the Championship, he stood out as one of their best performers.

He scored nine goals in 21 top-flight starts – an excellent return for a struggling team – and Premier League-winning manager Pep Guardiola once said that he was ‘very impressed’ by the winger.

The 25-year-old looks almost certain to leave Burnley after their relegation, and it appears as though Steve Cooper’s side are right in the mix.

The Latest: Forest keen on Cornet

According to The Daily Mail, Forest have ‘revived their bid’ to sign Cornet this summer, with the attacker having a £17.5m release clause in his Burnley contract.

Everton and Fulham are also interested in snapping up the 29-cap Ivory Coast international, but the Reds are ‘pressing ahead’ with a potential move.

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

The Verdict: Strong wide option

Cooper has already made key attacking inroads this summer, bringing in the likes of Taiwo Awoniyi and Jesse Lingard, but Cornet could be another superb addition.

He has already shown that he can thrive in the Premier League, even in a team not renowned for playing expansive football, so he could come alive even more in the 42-year-old’s attack-minded system.

Are you hoping that Forest sign Tavernier?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Indeed, the Ivorian’s former Clarets team-mate Chris Wood once mused that the Burnley squad “were going to sit down at the end of the season and just watch a highlight reel of his best goals”, so impressed were they with Cornet’s impact at Turf Moor.

Battling off other top-flight clubs could be tough, especially Everton, but Forest are an exciting proposition given their ambition in the transfer market. The hope is that Cornet’s head is turned by their interest and that he sees himself as a regular starter at the City Ground.
