Nottingham Forest want to add ex-Man City man to £85m spending spree

Nottingham Forest have approached RB Leipzig for left-back Angelino as Steve Cooper’s men look to add to their 12 summer signings… and the newly-promoted side are still in talks over THREE more deals

  • Forest are in the market for a left-back after injury to new boy Omar Richards 
  • The club are still looking for a forward and a midfielder in addition to left-back
  • Angelino played for Man City six times before departing for RB Leipzig last year
  • Forest have already spent £85m this year on 12 players and they’re not stopping

Nottingham Forest have made an enquiry to take Red Bull Leipzig full-back Angelino on loan.

The newly promoted-side, who are gearing up for their first game in the top-flight in 23 years, are not done recruiting despite a busy summer thus far, which has seen them spend £85million on 12 players.

Forest want cover at full-back following the hairline fracture suffered by new signing Omar Richards and Angelino – formerly of Manchester City – fits the bill.

Angelino moved to RB leipzig last summer following a successful loan spell from Man City

The former Manchester City defender has also had interest from Brighton this window but looked likely to stay in the Bundesliga after Hoffenheim stepped in with an offer on Wednesday.

They also spoke to Real Betis over a deal for Alex Moreno but have been struggling to agree terms.

Angelino, 25, joined Leipzig from City last year after an impressive season on loan.

Forest have brought in a dozen players this summer including Jesse Lingard on a free transfer, Dean Henderson on-loan from Manchester United, forward Taiwo Awoniyi and Liverpool full-back Neco Williams.

Despite splashing out more than £80m on their deals, they’re still sniffing for plenty more.

Forest have asked about Atalanta midfielder Remo Freuler but are still some distance apart on valuation.

Morgan Gibbs-White is Forest’s number one target now but Wolves have rejected three bids

Jizz Hornkamp has emerged as a target to give Forest different options and depth up front

They want Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White after having two bids rejected, the latest one totalled £35m.

Steve Cooper’s men also want another forward. They spoke to Willem II this week regarding Jizz Hornkamp.

They open up their Premier League campaign away at Newcastle on Saturday in a 3pm kick-off.
