Nottingham Forest have discovered the valuation of Max Lowe after a bid of £2 million was rejected, according to The Star.
The Reds are hoping to keep Lowe after a decent campaign which culminated in Forest reaching the Premier League.
Lowe did suffer a groin injury that saw him miss several months but he did manage to play 23 times for the Reds.
Now, Steve Cooper is looking to keep all of the club’s loan players and that means a deal will be sought for Lowe.
Forest defeated Huddersfield at Wembley last weekend to end their 23-year wait for a return to the Premier League.
Lowe came on for the final 16 minutes at the national stadium and did quite well in his natural left-sided wing-back role.
Forest aren’t exactly blessed with loads of options at left-back. Jack Colback has filled in during 2021/22 but a more natural option will be sought by the Reds.
Lowe plus another left-back could be added to the ranks and Cooper clearly valued his contribution during the last campaign.
Now, a report has claimed that Sheffield United are demanding a premium for the services of Lowe.
After rejecting £2 million, The Star claims that it could take double to prise Low away from Bramall Lane.
Lowe has done a job for Forest but United valuation is ludicrous
Lowe has hardly played for the Blades and this valuation seems a little bit high.
The left-back is at a nice age where he might improve and it’s easy to see why the Reds want to land him permanently.
Having slipped out of favour at Bramall Lane, it was anticipated that United will let him leave this summer.
Although they may still do that, it doesn’t look as though Forest will be able to get their man on the cheap.
The pursuit of Lowe goes on and it will be interesting what move Forest make next.
