Nottingham Forest have joined Liverpool in the race to sign winger Ibrahim Adel, according to 90Min. Brentford and Arsenal are also monitoring the player, with a host of European clubs in the mix.

It’s perhaps no surprise that Liverpool are in the box seat. The talented 21-year-old has been dubbed the next Mohamed Salah in Egypt with the player expected to become the country’s poster boy.

Forest are undeterred though. They showcased in the summer that they’re keen to attract young talents to the City Ground and Adel is firmly on the club’s shortlist.

The Salah connection is intriguing. It’s claimed that Salah has made a personal check with the Liverpool recruitment team to make sure that Adel is on their radar.

The 21-year-old is currently playing for Pyramids FC. He typically operates on the left wing and last season he scored seven goals and laid on a further five in the way of assists.

Now, he could be set to move away from his homeland. Several Premier League clubs are keen; with clubs on the continent also monitoring his situation ahead of the January transfer window.

Forest added 22 players to their ranks during the summer months. Now, it would appear they’re already looking to set their stall out for the January transfer window.

Although the Reds enjoyed a fruitful summer, they didn’t manage to add a left-sided forward to their ranks. As a result, this link perhaps doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

Forest would welcome Adel to the squad. It would perhaps be viewed as a signing for the future, however, as opposed to one for the here and now.

Clearly, Adel is talented. He’s been endorsed by Salah himself and his numbers are good in his home country.

The Premier League is a different animal though and it would be very interesting to see how he would take to that environment.
