Nottingham Forest have made a new and improved offer for the Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White that would see them break the club’s transfer record if accepted.
Wolves have rejected previous bids for the winger from Forest, who has also attracted interest from Everton and Crystal Palace. Wolves have been adamant all summer that Gibbs-White is not for sale but Forest are hoping their latest offer for the winger will be successful.
The attacker has been a key target for the Forest head coach, Steve Cooper, throughout the summer. Cooper worked with Gibbs-White during his time in charge of England age group teams and also when the player was on loan at Swansea and Cooper was manager there.
Gibbs-White impressed last season on loan at Sheffield United in the Championship, scoring 11 goals in 35 league appearances. Ironically, he missed the penalty in the playoff semi-final that sent Forest to the final, which they went on to win against Huddersfield.
Forest have been the most active Premier League side in the transfer market this summer, already signing 12 players. They broke their transfer record earlier this summer with their first arrival, the £17m striker Taiwo Awoniyi.
They are also in the market for a central midfielder, with Real Betis’ William Carvalho one target for the role.
