Not satisfied. According Sky Sports, Nottingham Forest has agreed with Wolverhampton to recruit its young (22) midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, ex-international England U23. It would be the biggest transfer of the summer of the promoted since it is a question of an indemnity of 50 M €, bonus included, which would be paid in two instalments. With this transfer, Forest would become the second biggest spending club in the Premier League this summer after Chelsea.
Aouar on stand-by
The double European champion (1979 and 1980) has already bought right-back Neco Williams from Liverpool and attracted attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard, who arrived free from Manchester United. Gibbs-White would thus become his 16th recruit. And the shopping may not be over. Lyonnais Houssem Aouar could also join the promoted, even if an agreement seems difficult between the clubs on the amount of the transfer.
The international environment (24 years old, 1 selection) is not not in the Lyon group to receive Troyes this Friday at the opening of the 3rd day of Ligue 1 (9 p.m., in commentary), but his absence is a sporting choice and is not linked to a possible departure of the player, explained the staff of OL on Thursday.
After an initial defeat (0-2 against Newcastle) and a success (1-0 against West Ham), Nottingham Forest travels to Everton on Saturday (4 p.m., goal by goal).
