These Forest fans on Twitter have been buzzing with reports linking them with Mings

Nottingham Forest have been busy so far this transfer window. Manager Aitor Karanka has already added nine players to his squad in the hope that they can push for promotion to the Premier League next season.

According to The Mirror (Transfer News Live, 18:00pm, July 7 2018), Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings is the latest player who could make the switch to The City Ground.

If Mings were to sign for Forest he would be following fellow Cherries player Lewis Grabban, who joined Karanka’s project for £6m last week.

25-year-old Mings has played the majority of his career at left-back but can also fill in comfortably as a centre-back thanks to his strength and height. Bournemouth broke their transfer record in 2015 to sign the Englishman from Ipswich for £8m but injuries have stopped Mings from repaying the fee he commanded.

A torn knee ligament in his first season with the club and a back injury last season have limited him to just 12 Premier League appearances during his frustrating three years on the south coast.

Mings must be desperate for a fresh start and, despite the injuries, most of these Forest fans have been buzzing with the rumours linking him with their club. Check out some of the best reactions below.
