Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow has been urged to stay with the Championship club instead of playing second fiddle at a top Premier League side, as reported by Sky Sports.
Former England goalkeeper Tim Flowers has recently become the ‘keeper coach at the City Ground and the ex-Southampton and Blackburn man wants to work with Darlow for years to come.
Spurs are reportedly set to make their move for the 23-year-old who was in and out of the Forest side last season.
However with Hugo Lloris signing a new deal it seems Arsenal are now the front runners for his signature although Flowers believes any move like that would be a mistake.
“I think this is the perfect club for Karl right now,” Flowers said.
“It’s a big club with an expectant crowd and wonderful facilities.
“Depending on how the jersey pans out in pre-season, he’s got a chance to play first-team football. You see a lot of lads his age who move clubs and don’t play – absolute waste of time.
“This is the right place at the right time for him.
“He’s got things to improve on and learn but he’s only 23 so has plenty of years ahead of him.
“I believe I can bring him on and that’s what I’m looking to do, as I am with all our goalkeepers.”
