Nottingham Forest: Cooper interested in signing Che Adams

Nottingham Forest have already made four signings this summer and are currently on the cusp of signing Omar Richards and Neco Williams too, now Steve Cooper’s next transfer target has been identified by a reliable source.

What’s the latest?

According to Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor, Nottingham Forest are now interested in signing Southampton striker Che Adams this summer.

Taylor tweeted;

“Nottingham Forest set to wrap up signing of Omar Richards from Bayern Munich in deal worth around £9m.”

“More: Che Adams among striker targets of interest to Steve Cooper but Southampton unlikely to sell.”

Imagine him & Johnson

Cooper is clearly looking to bolster his squad ahead of Forest’s return to the Premier League next season, and getting in players who have experience in the top flight would be massively advantageous, so Adams could be the perfect fit for the squad.

The 25-year-old centre-forward has scored 38 goals and delivered 13 assists over 123 appearances for Southampton, with a goal contribution every 165 minutes and last season in particular Adams has been a consistent attacking threat for the Saints.

In the Premier League, Adams scored seven goals, delivered three assists and created five big chances, taking 1.6 shots and winning 4.5 duels on average per game, as well as successfully completing the majority of his dribble attempts (57%) over 30 appearances.

The £15m Saints striker has been the recipient of high praise from his manager Ralf Hasenhuttl who hailed Adams as the “ketchup bottle phenomenon” in an interview via the club website.

“Maybe again we have the ketchup bottle phenomenon. A long time nothing, but then maybe everything comes at once. So let’s see,” he said.

If the Forest boss could seal a deal for Adams he could unlock a fantastic attacking partnership between the Scotland international and Cooper’s star player Brennan Johnson, it could be the perfect match to ensure the newly-promoted side can retain their top-flight status next season.

Should Nottingham Forest sign Che Adams?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With that being said, the powers at Nottingham Forest would need to make a lucrative and tempting offer to tear Adams away from Southampton this summer, but if they could secure his signature the player would be a great addition to the team.
