Another day and the umpteenth claim has been made about Nottingham Forest-linked forward Morgan Gibbs-White. So, does anyone truly know what the future holds for the 22-year-old?

Ever since Forest won promotion, it’s been claimed that he’s a top priority for the Reds. Now, every day it would seem that new clubs are emerging for his signature.

A report by the Independent claims that Everton are now the frontrunners to sign him. The Toffees, they claim, are also hopeful of landing him despite a £20 million bid being rejected.

Despite that, a report by European football expert, Jacque Talbot claims that Gibbs-White is holding out for Forest. It’s claimed by him that the player holds a desire to play under Steve Cooper.

Furthermore, Crystal Palace and Southampton have also been linked. Whilst other reports claim that Bruno Lage sees him as enjoying a good season at Wolves during 2022/23.

Then there is the transfer fee. Some reports a month ago suggested, he was valued at £20 million. Now, it would seem that £30 million is the number that will tempt Wolves into a sale.

Forest linked with Gibbs-White – but will they sing him and does anyone actually know?

Truthfully, it would appear that literally, nobody knows. Right now the player is preparing for 2022/23 with Wolves in Spain and from there he should travel with the squad to Portugal.

Forest and Everton are likely to be the two teams closely monitoring the situation now. Southampton have signed Joe Aribo, whilst Palace have a plethora of talent in the final third already.

Having Gibbs-White as a number one target makes a lot of sense. He is young, extremely talented and fills the number 10 role that has been vacated by Philip Zinckernagel leaving.

Furthermore, he’s a player that Cooper knows well. He knows that not only is he a capable player but the type of character that he wants in his dressing room.

Everton will want him for the exact same reason though. If anything, seeing a club as reputable as them in the market for him suggests that Forest’s recruitment is in the right ballpark.

The various reports are growing tedious though. If Gibbs-White ends up at Forest, then great. If he doesn’t, the club will move on and target another player to bolster their squad.
