Giulian Biancone now confirmed from Troyes on a 3 years deal, fee rumoured to be €6M. Looks versatile across the back which is great for squad cover. They keep coming, thick and fast. Exciting times to be a red!!
Personal Terms agreed with Neco Williams, but no fee agreed as yet. £12m bid rejected and Forest said to be moving on. Could run on and on this one.
What do you mean by "moving on"? Looking elsewhere? I certainly hope not! I know one should not give in to the ............!! .But surely he is worth paying a bit more for!
Think it's all coming down to the agreed initial selling fee & the "add on" clause fee. Heard we'd offered initial £12m, Liverpool want nearer £15m. Expect a deal to be done within the week if rumours are he wants to come, especially as limited game time staying @liverpool with Trent Alexander Arnold set as the No.1 rb
Reports suggesting Southampton are now favourites for Williams as Forest unwilling to meet Liverpool`s asking price.
I sincerely hope this is not true. (According to "Jasonpineapple" yesterday, only some final details had to be confirmed).
Also, as Neco Willliams is a very good friend of Brennan Johnson / Wales team-mate, and wants to come to Forest, I feel not meeting the Liverpool...............(!!)'s "terms" may not be in Forest's best interest.
In past years Forest have had to sell before we buy. That’s not the case this year, but we do face competition from some big spenders. I suspect there’s some auctioning going on.
And what about Williams' wishes? What if he does not want to move to Southampton?
Forest obviously made an offer which is not quite what Liverpool are prepared to accept. We maybe tried to save a few Million( quite rightly so) & not pay over the odds. Perhaps IF Southampton make a bid that does get accepted, we know exactly how much we need to pay to match the bid, it's all down to the players choice then. Playing Under Cooper who he probably knows from Liverpool Academy + playing alongside International teammate BJ leading up to the World Cup, you would hope that would be the draw for him to become one of our next signings?
