Nottingham Forest’s transfer window seems to have moved on in recent days. Serious leads are multiplying and the club is beginning to send out offers to complete certain arrivals as quickly as possible. Most recently, rumours of Chelsea right-winger Callum Hudson-Odoi’s arrival at the City Ground have become increasingly credible.
According to Jacque Talbot of FootballTransfers, Nottingham Forest are among the favourites to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi. Steve Cooper is said to be a big fan of the player, whom he knew when he was England U17 manager. Chelsea are not interested in loaning out their winger again, but are open to a sale if an agreement can be reached around a fee of £20m.
