Nottingham Forest are keen on signing Huddersfield starlet Etienne Camara, according to The Sun. Leicester and Brighton are also in the mix, with the Foxes thought to be in pole position.

The Terriers value their young talent at £10 million. They are, however, looking for a deal that would involve Camara remaining in West Yorkshire on loan until the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

Forest will search for some more new players when the January transfer window opens. The Reds added no fewer than 22 new players in the summer and it’s been a challenge for Steve Cooper to get a settled team.

A 28-year-old defence-minded midfielder, Camara, burst onto the scene during 2022/23. He has made 13 appearances during the season, with the Terriers suffering a hangover from their play-off final defeat to Forest.

Camara now has a wealth of admirers. Forest are clearly keen to add another central midfielder to their ranks and with Cheickou Kouyate picking up an injury at the World Cup, their need could be urgent.

Camara is only 19-years-old. He’s been producing the goods on the field though and now he’s receiving admiring glances from several Premier League clubs ahead of the January window.

Forest keen on signing Camara

The youngster does look set to leave Huddersfield during the forthcoming January window. He has several clubs waiting to pay his valuation and it will be hard for the Terriers to keep hold of him.

Camara is French and he’s risen through the youth ranks in West Yorkshire. Now, he’s impacting the senior ranks with Huddersfield and has been largely impressive in the Championship.

Forest would certainly benefit from another midfielder. Although they do have a decent quota of players in that area, it won’t hurt to sing a player who looks destined to star in the future.

Camara could be a very useful signing indeed. He would perhaps add something to the ranks that Cooper doesn’t already have and at 19, the Reds would be well set for the future if they land the youngster.
