Huddersfield Town defender Harry Toffolo is expected to be the next new signing made by Nottingham Forest after Moussa Niakhate.
According to The Athletic, the Reds will wrap up a £2.5 million signing of the man who played against Forest in the play-off final.
Steve Cooper has been a busy man this summer as he aims to make his squad competitive during 2022/23.
So far, Taiwo Awoniyi, Dean Henderson and Giulian Biancone have all been added to the ranks.
Mainz captain Niakhate will arrive imminently and Toffolo is thought to be the next in line to arrive.
The Huddersfield man has just a year remaining on his current contract with the Terriers.
That leaves the Championship outfit in a perilous situation and they will see the £2.5 million fee as a pittance for one of their best players.
Forest won’t care. That sum represents small change from their perspective and it would see the team strengthen at wing-back.
Toffolo was added to the Huddersfield ranks by Danny Cowley when he was appointed as the Terriers’ boss in 2020.
He’s become integral in West Yorkshire and a big fan favourite due to his all-action style of play.
Toffolo has made 99 appearances for the Terriers but it was last season when the 26-year-old truly came of age.
He scored six times and claimed eight assists all from his left wing-back role, helping Huddersfield defy the odds to reach the play-off final.
Toffolo expected to sign for Forest and it could be a shrewd addition
The Reds could be pulling off a real coup with the addition of Toffolo.
Although he’s not a big-money signing, Forest have perhaps shopped in a savvy fashion by pursuing the Huddersfield man.
Toffolo has unbelievable energy and after starring in the Championship for two seasons, he will crave a Premier League opportunity.
Now, he looks set to get that chance with the team that caused him heartache just over a month ago.
With left-back an area of concern in the Forest squad, Toffolo will have a real chance to become a regular in Cooper’s team next season.
