The Lowdown: Maupay linked with move
The Reds have had an unforgettable summer in the transfer market, bringing in more signings than any other top flight team as they look to hold their own back in the big time.
Another player who Forest have been linked with in recent days is Maupay, with Brighton seemingly willing to let the Frenchman leave this summer.
There is plenty of interest in the 26-year-old but it looks as though the Reds may have won the race.
The Latest: Fresh update emerges
According to Football Insider, Forest are ‘confident’ of signing Maupay this summer, fending off competition from Everton and Fulham in the process.
It is claimed that a ‘breakthrough in negotiations’ is ‘close’, further suggesting that the Brighton striker will be heading to the City Ground.
The Verdict: Proven Premier League quality
While some of Forest’s summer signings are unproven in the Premier League, Maupay has shown that he can be a hugely effective player in the competition, scoring 26 times in 102 appearances.
Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?
He is also a tenacious player who knows how to get under the opposition’s skin and has been hailed as ‘unique’ by Graham Potter, so he would be a strong all-round package for Forest.
Goals are always the be-all and end-all in the Premier League, especially for relegation-threatened teams, and Forest signing Maupay would guarantee more firepower.
