Nottingham Forest will definitely make a bid for Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien, according to The Athletic.

The claim was made by Daniel Taylor who yesterday treated the Reds faithful to a transfer special Q&A.

O’Brien was part of Carlos Corberan’s team that defied the odds and reached the Championship play-off final last season.

The 23-year-old made 50 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and claiming three assists for the Terriers.

A failure to win promotion could cost Huddersfield though and £10 million could see O’Brien depart this summer.

Leeds were thought to be interested in the central midfielder, although they’ve now pursued other targets.

Forest are on the lookout for a few midfielders this summer, with Steve Cooper’s ranks looking particularly bare on that front.

Ryan Yates and Jack Colback are two players who are capable. Cafu, Braian Ojeda and Tyrese Fornah are unlikely to be regular starters, however.

Speaking on the Forest Q&A, Taylor confirmed that Forest are set to table a bid for O’Brien this summer.

He said: “O’Brien is definitely on the list, they will bid for him and Toffolo.”

The youngster is likely to fancy a move to the Premier League and it’s fair to say that he’d be a welcome addition to the squad.

Corberan would agree with that sentiment. He called his player ‘exceptional’ back in March.

There is an awful lot to love about Forest going for O’Brien. He is young, talented and ultimately he wouldn’t cost Forest a fortune.

Furthermore, he’d bolster the Reds in an area on the pitch where they are desperate for signings.

O’Brien is ready for a Premier League chance. He has made 131 appearances for Huddersfield and the top flight is now awaiting.

This news that Forest are making a bid for him will come as a welcome piece of news to supporters.

The hope will be that something that can happen quickly and O’Brien can enjoy plenty of pre-season to settle on Trentside.
