Wolves will offer Nottingham Forest target Morgan Gibbs-White a new contract but according to The Sun, if he doesn’t sign it he will be sold this summer.
The Reds have been linked with a move for the forward. Southampton are also keen, although the influence of Steve Cooper could be a huge factor for the England under-21 players.
Gibbs-White has already played under Cooper. During the 2020/21 campaign, he played for Swansea and helped the club reach the Championship play-off final.
Last season he spent the campaign on loan at Sheffield United. There, he registered 10 assists and scored 13 goals as the Blades lost to Forest in the play-offs.
Intriguingly it was Gibbs-White who missed the decisive penalty during the second leg, with his failed attempt from the spot sending Forest to Wembley.
Now, he’s a target for Forest ahead of their maiden campaign back in the top division.
Gibbs-White won’t come cheap. There is a suggestion that Wolves will command around £25 million for the services of the 22-year-old.
The youngster is tipped for a bright future and his performances last season did help Sheffield United reach the play-offs.
Wolves are now in a difficult situation. Although they’d like to keep Gibbs-White, they will entertain offers if the offer of a new deal is rejected.
Wolves offer Gibbs-White a new contract but Forest have to be ready to pounce
Gibbs-White would represent a remarkable signing from a Forest point of view and the Reds have to be ready to pounce.
The player was a real star in the Championship last season and naturally, he will fancy playing Premier League football next season.
It’s quite hard to imagine him playing for Wolves on a regular basis and that could lead to a transfer this summer.
Gibbs-White can operate as a number 10 or through the middles as an out and out striker.
Forest will definitely seek to add more firepower to their squad and the Wolves player could be jus the player the Reds crave.
