Nottingham Forest were linked with a move for Martin Satriano earlier this month but the youngster has moved to France instead.

The 20-year-old has joined Brest on loan until the end of the 2021/22 campaign. The top-flight outfit were beaten 2-0 by PSG at the weekend and currently occupy 13th place in the Ligue 1 table.

Satriano was linked with a move to Forest before the transfer window even opened. The Athletic has also claimed that he remains a long-term target of the club.

The Inter striker penned a new two-year contract at the San Siro last week. In fairness, that could be to preserve his valuation should they choose to sell him at any point.


Satriano has barely featured this season. He has made just four appearances for Inter, with each of them coming from the bench.

Last season he caught the eye. He fired 14 goals and claimed six assists for the Inter second string in their Primavera 1 campaign.

Satriano has come through the ranks at Inter. He looks set for a decent career and is tipped for great things.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton were all linked in the summer; with Manchester City and Manchester United also sending scouts to watch him, according to the Daily Mail.

Exciting: Forest will monitor Satriano at Brest with intrigue

The youngster is clearly talented. After signing Keinan Davis, perhaps Forest have decided they’re well-stocked with strikers for the current campaign.

That will likely change in the summer though. Forest will almost certainly target a new striker and a younger model as an alternative to Grabban would be ideal.

Satriano fits that bill and Forest look to be shopping in the right ballpark.

For now, they’ll have to monitor his Brest performances with intrigue. If he does well, however, don’t be surprised to see Forest make a summer move for the Uruguayan.
