Nottingham Forest are set to complete the signing of Braian Ojeda. The club are busy seeking new players ahead of Tuesday’s deadline and according to ABC journalist Bruno Pont, a deal is close.
Ojeda plays for Olimpia in Paraguay where he is from. He spent last season on loan with Argentinean outfit Defensa. During his loan spell, he made 12 appearances, starting half of the games he played in.
Pont believes that Ojeda will sign a four-year deal at the City Ground, although at this stage it’s unsure how much Forest will pay in order to secure his services.
A 21-year-old, it would appear the midfielder is a bright prospect. He typically operates in a box-to-box role and possesses a stunning array of passing.
Coming to England would provide Ojeda with a challenge. He would need to adapt to the different culture and ultimately a different level of football. It’s fair to say that he’d be welcome at Forest though.
There does seem a much of a muchness with Forest’s midfielders. Jack Colback, Ryan Yates and Cafu all perform similar duties, with James Garner the one linking up with the forward players.
Will Ojeda shine for Forest?
He could do and this certainly looks like a signing right out of Dane Murphy’s playbook. Ojeda is young, creative and could bring a lot to the Forest ranks.
The Reds have endured some issues when it comes to sparking creativity through the middle of the park. The hope would be that the Paraguayan can bring something different to the ranks.
Certainly, Yates and Colback have come under fire this season and perhaps Ojeda is exactly the type of midfielder Forest are crying out for.
This one looks to be close and the youngster could prove to be an exciting signing for the Reds.
