Nottingham Forest: Reds plotting second move for Ruslan Malinovskyi

Nottingham Forest: Reds plotting second move for Ruslan Malinovskyi -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest are plotting a second attempt to sign Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi in January, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Summer spree

The Reds made goalkeeper Adnan Kanuric their 23rd and latest signing on a free transfer last month, but that hasn’t seemed to stop Evangelos Marinakis and Steve Cooper from preparing for the upcoming winter window.

The Premier League side were heavily linked with a move for the 29-year-old Malinovskyi over the summer alongside rivals Tottenham Hotspur, and despite him allegedly favouring a switch to the capital, a deal failed to materialise before the deadline.

The Latest: Forest eyeing Malinovskyi

According to Italian outlet Corriere di Bergamo (via Sport Witness), Malinovskyi is ‘not happy these days’, which has raised a ‘transfer question’ about a potential exit in the New Year.

It’s stated that Forest, Spurs and Marseille are ‘all keen’ on the Serie A talent again, and a January move, even on loan, ‘cannot be ruled out’.

The Verdict: Don’t do it…

Forest aren’t currently in the best position to attract top players given the fact that they are in the relegation zone and can’t offer any European fixtures, but it’s best that they avoid Malinovskyi anyway.

The Ukrainian, dubbed a ‘weapon’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, has scored 32 goals in 163 career appearances, but has started just four league games this season as his career reaches its twilight years.

Malinovskyi wanting to join Tottenham over the Reds in the summer clearly shows that he isn’t keen on a move to the City Ground, and with his recent form, age and a contract expiring in 2023, it certainly has the feel of a ‘final pay day’ type move for the player.
