Nottingham Forest have been linked with a sensational loan swoop for Real Madrid sensation Eduardo Camavinga. The report comes from Futbol Total and frankly, it’s absolute nonsense!

The France midfielder is heading to the World Cup. He’s one of Europe’s top talents and this season he’s made 20 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos.

Camavinga has started just six games this season. Still, it seems highly unlikely that Carlo Ancelotti will be loaning him out anytime soon.

Furthermore, with all due respect to Forest, if he does become available, he will have clubs queuing around the Bernabeu. As a result, he seems like a vastly unrealistic signing for the Reds to consider.

Camavinga cost Real Madrid £34 million when they signed him in September 2021. He also earns £128,000-a-week in Spain and his wages will need to be paid in full should a deal be struck with another club.

Forest will go in search of more players during the January transfer window. It’s likely that only one or two will be targeted though, with the Reds prioritising quality over quantity.

Camavinga looks like a pipe dream. It seems highly ambitious that Real Madrid will even consider letting him go and Forest must prepare to be forced into looking elsewhere.

The Reds will naturally be linked with all sorts of players in the coming weeks. After pulling off swoops for the likes of Jesse Lingard and Renan Lodi, media outlets will presume another stellar signing is incoming.

But, Forest will need to be careful. Steve Cooper is just starting to get a settled side together and the club would be wise to take stock and listen to any advice from the head coach on transfers.

Camavinga won’t be signing for Forest when the January transfer window reopens. His stock is far too high and even as a loan deal, the sums just wouldn’t add up from a Forest perspective.

This link hardly looks like a credible one either. Forest will search for new recruits during the window but fans might have to temper their expectations somewhat.
