According to reports, Nottm Forest have identified Tottenham defender Joe Rodon and Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White as ‘key targets’.
Rodon made the move to Tottenham in 2020 from Swansea City for a fee in the region of £11m.
The Welshman has only played 15 times for them in the Premier League over the past two seasons. That includes three outings in 2021/22.
Gibbs-White meanwhile progressed through the ranks at Wolves. He has been a bit-part player over the past few seasons.
The England U21 international spent last season on loan at Sheffield United. He performed well for the Blades as he grabbed twelve goals and ten assists in 37 appearances.
It is acknowledged that Forest boss Steve Cooper has worked with both players in the past. He was with Rodon at Swansea and he managed Gibbs-White as boss of England’s U17 side.
The report adds that Nottm Forest ‘hope to agree a £17.5m deal for Union Berlin forward Taiwo Awoniyi’. They also ‘retain an interest’ in Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico and Mainz’s Moussa Niakhate.
Elsewhere, Liverpool are willing to let Welsh international Neco Williams go out on loan next season so that he can play regular football ahead of the World Cup in Qatar, according to reports.
Williams, 21, spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham, where he performed impressively in a side that would go on to win the Championship.
The youngster has struggled for game-time at Liverpool, where Trent Alexander-Arnold is currently undroppable in the right-back position. As a result, the club are prepared to negotiate a loan deal for Williams next season, according to the Mirror, to get him up to speed ahead of this winter’s World Cup.
Williams has become a fixture of Rob Page’s Wales side and is expected to start in their group games against England, Qatar and the USA, having started in the qualifier win over Ukraine earlier this month.
Williams will not be short of suitors when he assesses his options this summer, with Premier League newcomers Fulham and Nottingham Forest both expressing a keen desire to add him to their ranks.
Williams already has experience at Craven Cottage while with Forest, he has the connection with Steve Cooper, his former Liverpool academy coach.
