Nottingham Forest are keen to sign Alex Moreno but a report from ABC Sevilla claims that he won’t come cheap.

Left-backs have proved hard to come by at Forest and in truth, they’ve often struggled to attract them down the years.

Now, with Forest a Premier League club, there appears to be no such problem.

The Reds have added Omar Richards from Bayern Munich this summer and Harry Toffolo could sign from Huddersfield.

Now, Moreno is in their sights too.

The Real Betis star won the Copa del Rey with the La Liga outfit last season and also finished the season in fifth place.

Signing him won’t be easy though. The Reds will need to fork out £17 million in order to land him this summer.

Moreno is receptive to the move though and seems keen to move to the Premier League.

That does come as a shock.

Nothing against Forest but his current club will be in the Europa League next season and appear to be a side on the up.

Still, playing for the Reds during their first season back in the Premier League should also be something to saviour.

The Athletic claimed last night that talks had started but that they were still in the early stages.

Forest keen to sign Moreno but they have to pay the valuation

In truth, Real Betis probably value Moreno much higher than £17 million.

The player was a big part of last season’s success story and they probably wouldn’t be averse to keeping him.

Still, every player has a price and if they want to strengthen elsewhere they might need to raise some funds.

Moreno looks like he’d be a useful addition to the City Ground ranks.

He can also play in the left-wing position and he’d strengthen Steve Cooper’s squad in more than one area.

Forest have already forked out £60 million this summer and if O’Brien and Toffolo arrive that will increase to £70 million.

Moreno looks an appealing signing but whether Forest feel he’s worth a £17 million outlay remains to be seen.
