Luka Milivojevic is being eyed by Nottingham Forest ahead of their maiden campaign back in the Premier League, according to SDNA.

The Reds will be in the market for a new central midfielder during the summer.

Ryan Yates is likely to remain a mainstay in the team but James Garner has returned to Manchester United following his loan spell.

Cafu, Braian Ojeda and Tyrese Fornah are in Steve Cooper’s ranks but it’s hard to imagine them getting a shot at the Premier League.

Olympiacos are also in the mix to re-sign the midfielder, whilst Fulham are also considering making a move for Milivojevic.

The Crystal Palace maestro joined from the Greek champions in 2017 and he’s been an important part of their team.

Milivojevic has made 177 appearances for the Eagles, scoring 28 times for the club and claiming six assists.

The 31-year-old is something of a penalty king. He has scored 22 during his career, missing just four in total.

Now, Forest see the player as the ideal man to join them as they embark on a maiden campaign back in the Premier League.

Milivojevic is more of a defensive midfielder and clearly, Steve Cooper fancies adding some experience to his ranks.

Premier League expertise could be vital to Forest next season and Milivojevic would bring plenty of that.

It’s fair to say that the £80,000-a-week Milivojevic doesn’t really fit the profile of what Dane Murphy or Cooper look for when signing new players.

The midfielder would command a transfer fee and signing players with little or zero resale value isn’t on the agenda.

Milivojevic does have some Premier League experience but he’s approaching the twilight of his career.

It’s always somewhat odd that Olympiacos are linked as well as Forest.

Evangelos Marinakis competing for the same player at both of his clubs really doesn’t make a great deal of sense.

With that in mind, this link might be one that needs to be taken with a big pinch of salt.
