Nottingham Forest are looking at Venezia midfielder Domen Crnigoj as an option to bolster their midfield ranks.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, the Reds are in the market to land the 26-year-old this summer.

He has been at Venezia since 2020 when he checked in from Swiss outfit FC Lugano.

The Slovenian performer has been a mainstay in the team since he moved to Italy.

He’s made 74 appearances for the club, scoring seven goals and registering two assists.

Now, he could be on the move with Forest eyeing a move for the player who has a contract until 2025.

The midfielder is a regular in the Slovenia team and has collected 24 caps for the national team.

He largely operates as a central midfielder but he can also play on the right or as a number 10.

Forest could definitely do with another midfielder in their ranks.

Ryan Yates has penned a long-term deal but James Garner will head back to Manchester United.

Cafu, Braian Ojeda and Tyrese Fornah will all be around the club, although each player is perhaps short of Premier League quality.

Jack Colback could also be an important player but his best years are probably behind him.

Forest want Crnigoj and he’s an unknown quantity

This one would be a bit out of the blue.

He’s an unknown quantity and some fans might be a little bit sceptical about the midfielder.

Still, he does have experience of playing in the top flight and he’s a full international too.

Crnigoj keeps the ball nicely and given his passing radar he’s perhaps considered as an alternative to Garner.

Rumour rating: 4/10 – Forest fans will likely need some convincing over this one.

The midfielder is a real unknown quantity, although there is a lot to like about the player.

Crnigoj would surely welcome the chance to join Forest and it will be interesting to see how much he would cost.

This deal does tick a lot of boxes but given that he’s unknown the jury would remain out among some supporters.
