Nottingham Forest are stepping up their attempts to sign Morgan Gibbs-White and Wolves could be willing to sell the forward, according to TEAMtalk.

The Reds fancy Gibbs-White following his exploits on loan at Sheffield United during the 2021/22 campaign.

He netted in the 2-1 win over Forest in the second leg of the play-off semi-final but he also missed the decisive penalty in the shootout.

Forest boss Steve Cooper has worked with Gibbs-White previously during his time at Swansea City.

On that occasion during the 2020/21 campaign, the Wolves man broke his foot and that robbed him of the chance to make a real impact.

Last season he proved his worth along with his undoubted ability, helping the Bramall Lane outfit reach the play-offs.

The 22-year-old scored 12 goals and registered 10 assists for the Blades and for them, he will take some replacing next season.

Gibbs-White actually scored three times against Forest last season. His two goals for United came after he scored in a 4-0 rout for Wolves in the Carabao Cup.

His parent club have offered him a new contract. Now, it’s understood that the England under-21 man will make the decision to leave this summer.

Gibbs-White wants regular game time and it would seem as though he’s now ready to seek a new challenge.

The youngster looks like the perfect addition for Forest to make given what Cooper likes in a player.

He is young, quick and capable of scoring and creating goals, making him a sought-after man.

Southampton are thought to be willing to pay around £20 million for the player and even at that price he’d represent a steal.

Gibbs White typically operates as a number 10 but he showcased at Sheffield United that he can play as a centre forward.

He was outstanding in the second leg of their play-off game against Forest and clearly, Cooper is a big fan.

The youngster choosing to leave Wolves is a big bonus for Forest and should delight the fan base if he were to choose the City Ground as his destination.
