Gustavo Scarpa will arrive at Nottingham Forest in January as a title-winner after Palmeiras won the league on Wednesday.

They claimed an eleventh league crown by beating Fortaleza 4-0 on home soil.

Scarpa will now head to the City Ground following the World Cup where he will embark on a European adventure.

The attacker has held a long-term desire to play in Europe and Forest have granted his wish.

Scarpa didn’t get among the goals last night but he did claim an assist during the comprehensive win.

It’s been a remarkable season for the 28-year-old.

He’s scored 12 goals and laid on a further 17 in the way of assists from his 58 appearances.

Scarpa’s form has been so good this season that some talk in Brazil has seen him come into question for the Brazil squad.

They will be one of the favourites for the World Cup and it remains to be seen if he will get a call-up.

Scarpa already has one cap for his country and now he will be hoping for more.

Palmeiras have delighted their fans with this title win and the left-footed Forest-bound star will be missed.

He’s really grown as a player at Palmeiras and his form has seen him become a firm fan favourite.

It’s perhaps fitting that the Brazilian will finally depart Palmeiras with a league winner’s medal around his neck.

It’s the very least he deserves after a wonderful 2022.

He’s weighed in with goals and assists, often being considered the star of the show for his performances.

Now, he has a real challenge on his hands.

He will head to Forest with a point to prove in the Premier League and will want to do well at the club.

At 28, this is likely to be his last crack at European football and Forest might have a star on their hands.
