Nottingham Forest are reportedly ‘close’ to securing the capture of Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Rafa Mir, according to Nottinghamshire Live

Rafa Mir wouldn’t be the first player that the Reds have signed from Wolves in recent times.

Martin O’Neill signed Léo Bonatini from Molineux a couple of months ago, on a loan deal until the end of the 2018/19 campaign. However, the 25-year-old failed to make an impact for the Reds.

But according to a report, the Reds might want to now try their luck with one of his team-mates.

Nottinghamshire Live have claimed that the Reds are ‘close’ to securing a deal for Rafa Mir. A medical is set to take place in the next 24 hours and the forward would arrive on loan for the 2019/20 campaign.

The former Spain Under-21 international has been linked with a move away from the Premier League side this summer, but it seemed a move to Birmingham City was more likely.

Here’s how Forest fans reacted to potentially signing the 22-year-old forward:

There are only 10 days left for the Reds to sign anyone and, given how difficult it is to sign a striker at this level, snapping up Mir on a loan deal may be sensible business. As it stands, Lewis Grabban and Tyler Walker are the only strikers in Sabri Lamouchi’s plans for next season.

However, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the latter leave on loan if Mir was to arrive at the City Ground.

Mir has only made two appearances for Wolves since signing for £1.5 million from La Liga side Valencia. He is yet to find the back of the net for Nuno Espírito Santo’s side.
