Nottingham Forest: Double William Carvalho and Alex Moreno bid rejected

Nottingham Forest: Double William Carvalho and Alex Moreno bid rejected -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have seen a €10m (£8.3m) double bid for William Carvalho and Alex Moreno rejected by Real Betis, according to a new transfer update.

The Lowdown: Forest linked with Betis duo

The Reds have been linked with moves for both Carvalho and Moreno in recent days, as Steve Cooper looks to continue a relentless transfer window at the City Ground ahead of their Premier League return next weekend.

Carvalho is seen as someone who could add huge experience and stature to Forest’s midfield, while Moreno is considered another strong left-back option.

A fresh update suggests that Cooper will keep trying to get his latest two targets, although things aren’t too successful at the moment.

The Latest: Double bid rejected

According to ABC Sevilla [via Sport Witness], Betis have turned down a double bid worth €10m (£8.3m) for Carvalho and Moreno, with the La Liga club deeming Forest’s offer ‘insufficient’.

The bid was ‘rejected outright’, with a significant increase needed if the Andalucian club are to part ways with the sought-after duo.

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

The Verdict: Keep trying on Carvalho?

In truth, Forest were arguably being a little too optimistic expecting to get Carvalho and Moreno for less than £9m, given their respective pedigree as footballers.

Instead, the Reds may be best to focus solely on bringing in Carvalho, considering that Omar Richards and Harry Toffolo already have left-back covered, despite the former’s current injury absence.

Should Forest sign Dennis?

No

No

The Portugal international could make a huge difference at the heart of the midfield, protecting the Reds’ defence against menacing Premier League attacks, having averaged 1.5 tackles per game in La Liga last season and winning 2.5 aerial duels per match for Portugal in the UEFA Nations League over the summer.

Meanwhile, Moreno played the fourth-most league minutes of anyone at Betis in 2021/22, so it’s easy to see why they would be reluctant to let him leave on the cheap.
