Nottingham Forest are in talks to sign Real Betis left-back Alex Moreno this summer, according to hugely reliable journalist David Ornstein.
The Lowdown: Moreno an established left-back
Last season, Moreno had 30 league appearances to his name, registering five goals and three assists from left-back, and averaging 2.5 tackles per match to show an impressive well-rounded game.
Forest meanwhile have been incredible busy this summer, already landing eight new signings, and it looks like they’re closing in on another.
The Latest: Another Forest move
“EXCL: Nottingham Forest working on deal to sign Alex Moreno from Real Betis. Negotiations at relatively early stage & 29yo Spaniard believed to be open to possibility but no agreement as yet. #NFFC looking for cover in wing-back positions.”
The Verdict: Sign of Reds’ progress
An update like this is proof of the giant strides made by Forest under Steve Cooper, with their Premier League status allowing them to be linked with such players.
Are you hoping that Forest sign Tavernier?
Moreno is someone who has performed at the highest level for some time now and he could be a superb signing, providing an alternative to Harry Toffolo.
At 29, he has both lots of experience and plenty of room left to grow and hit his prime, ensuring that Forest continue going up a gear next season and beyond. Depth is vital for Cooper if his side are to pull away from the threat of relegation and this would be a perfect show of strength and ambition.
