Nottingham Forest plot club bid for Morgan Gibbs-White

Nottingham Forest have been heavily linked with a move for Morgan Gibbs-White this summer and now a new update has emerged on the club’s plans for competing to sign the player.

What’s the latest?

According to The Athletic, Nottingham Forest are the most likely suitors to sign Gibbs-White alongside Everton this summer.

As per the report, Forest are keeping a close eye on the player’s situation at Wolverhampton Wanderers and in terms of a transfer fee the club is more than willing to break the club’s record to sign the midfielder to compete with Everton for his signature.

Imagine him & Awoniyi

Steve Cooper is clearly wasting no time or resources in ensuring that Forest can build a team that can compete in the Premier League when they return to action next month, and Gibbs-White would be the perfect addition to complete the team’s attacking threat.

Forest have already signed seven players to bolster their squad ahead of their long-awaited return to the top-flight, with Taiwo Awoniyi joining the side from Union Berlin – where the striker was the Bundesliga side’s top scorer last season with 17 goals.

Now, the Welsh manager can reunite with his former player to complete a formidable attacking partnership between Awoniyi and Gibbs-White, as the midfielder has displayed his endless creativity whilst on a season-long loan with Sheffield United last season.

Who did Forest sign Stan Collymore from in 1993?

Gibbs-White – who was hailed “sensational” by Ryan Bennett – scored 12 goals and delivered 10 assists in all competitions for the Yorkshire club, finishing the season as the second-highest scoring player in the squad.

In the Championship he also created an impressive 16 big chances, proving that he would be a very valuable asset to Forest in the Premier League.

Furthermore, the youngster has also expressed his frustration at not getting the game time he feels he deserved at Wolves, revealing his desire to be a starter in the team in an interview with FourFourTwo last year:

“I feel I’m at a stage in my career where I’m ready to play week in, week out. Going to Sheffield United was the right move because I didn’t want to be sat on the bench at a Premier League team. I’m enjoying every minute of it.”

After working with Gibbs-White on the international stage with England U17s and signing him up at Swansea City, Cooper is no stranger to his talent and the £30m Wolves dynamo has also claimed that he has a “good relationship” with the Forest boss already:

“Steve Cooper and I have always had a good relationship. He did unbelievable things for me in the [U17] World Cup with England and when he was at Swansea, he gave me my chance when I went on loan there.”

Should Forest break club record to sign Gibbs-White?

Yes

With that being said, Forest must do everything they can to sign Gibbs-White this summer and should not be put off by the efforts of Everton, as he could make a huge difference in the newly-promoted side’s chances of survival in the Premier League next season.
