Nottingham Forest: Josh Bowler bid rejected

Nottingham Forest: Josh Bowler bid rejected -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have reportedly made an offer to sign Blackpool midfielder Josh Bowler. 

The lowdown: Long-term target

The Reds were initially linked with a move for Bowler earlier in the window but have since prioritised and indeed signed alternative options.

The 23-year-old Englishman, who came through the ranks at QPR prior to spells at Everton and Hull City, currently remains in situ at the Championship outfit.

Now it appears as though Forest have made a last-ditch attempt to get a deal over the line and bring Bowler to the City Ground…

The latest: Offer made

As per 90min, Nottingham Forest are believed to have made a bid worth ‘around’ £3million for the versatile ace.

It’s claimed that Bowler has ‘been a target for Steve Cooper since January’ as Bournemouth, Fulham and Blackburn Rovers also share an interest.

Journalist Pete O’Rourke has since revealed that the bid for the man hailed as ‘magic’ by ex-Everton under-23 manager David Unsworth has been rejected.

The verdict: Get it done

With deals for Serge Aurier and Willy Boly seemingly nearing completion, Bowler could become the 21st signing of what has been a chaotic summer of arrivals in the Midlands.

So far this term, the £1.8million valued starlet has scored twice in six appearances for Blackpool, earning a superb 7.03 SofaScore rating whilst winning 5.2 duels, successfully completing 3.0 dribbles and taking 4.0 shots on average per outing in the process.

Capable of playing on either wing and in central positions, Bowler would be an excellent addition to Cooper’s options and having entered the final year of a contract, should be attainable at a relatively low fee despite the initial rejection.
