Nottingham Forest have submitted an offer for PSG defender Loic Mbe Soh after his contract talks with the French giants collapsed, according to Goal.

The 19-year-old has played three times for the Ligue 1 outfit during his career but could now be on his way to the Championship.

PSG won’t stand in the way of Soh leaving the Parc des Princes but would like him to sign a contract so they can command a higher fee.

The youngster is out of contract in the summer of 2021 and it would appear that he is keen to quit the club.

His current club wanted to tie him down to a deal to 2024 but if Forest want to sign him now they will still have to pay a small fee for his services.

It is thought that the current conversation between the Reds and the Champions League finalists will be to determine whether he is affordable for Forest.

 

Forest could perhaps do with another central defender, although Soh could originally link up with Chris Cohen’s under-23 side.

Despite playing some senior football, he’s hardly experienced and he could be eased into things with a run in Cohen’s setup.

Prospect

The Reds have Joe Worrall, Tobias Figueiredo, Michael Dawson and Tyler Blackett who can play centre-back and with that in mind, Soh might be viewed as one for the future.

Forest slipped to a 1-0 defeat in their curtain-raising Carabao Cup contest at Barnsley and Sabri Lamouchi will probably welcome a couple more new signings.

Soh had been in good form during PSG’s UEFA Youth League campaign, captaining the side in a group containing Real Madrid, Galatasaray and Club Brugge.

If Forest could get the deal over the line, it would be interesting to see how he could take to Championship football.
