The Lowdown: Lodi links
The 24-year-old has recently fallen down the pecking order under Diego Simeone, failing to play a single minute of football so far this season, making a move away from the Spanish giants this summer likely.
The Latest: Romano reacts
Taking to Twitter, Romano was asked about the links, reacting by telling a Reds fan there is ‘no way’ Forest will sign Lodi before the end of the window, even temporarily.
“No, been told no way for loan deal for Renan Lodi as things stand. They rejected Man City approached in July…”
The Verdict: Blessing in disguise
If Atletico wouldn’t let him leave to join Pep Guardiola’s side, it’d only prove twice as difficult to try and get him to put pen to paper elsewhere.
Will Lodi be a good signing for Forest?
Having not played in La Liga so far this campaign, he would also probably require a bit of time to get up to speed, and for the amount of money he’d be on, this is not a move worth pursuing.
