Nottingham Forest have officially announced the signing of Brazilian forward Gustavo Scarpa. Now, he’s been spotted on the City Ground turf for the first time wearing the famous Garibaldi.

It’s been the worst-kept secret in Nottingham. Scarpa has been practically confirmed as being an incoming Forest addition for months and now the deal is over the line.

The player will officially sign on the 1st January when the transfer window opens. Last season, he was bang in form for Palmeiras, scoring 13 goals and claiming 15 assists as he helped the club win the league title.

Scarpa will sign a contract until 2026. As a result, the Reds will tie home down with the player in his prime and this does look like a strong deal that could prove very fruitful from a Forest perspective.

He has a wand of a left foot and can play in a number of positions in the final third. As a result, it would appear that the versatility has now been boosted in Steve Cooper’s attacking arsenal.

Scarpa can feature in the upcoming friendlies for Forest. The Reds are heading over to Athens for a mid-season training camp and will face Olympiacos and Aris.

The 28-year-old has been snapped in his new shirt on the City Ground turf. The player’s smile is already becoming a bit of a trademark and naturally, he will hope to impress with the ball at his feet.

Scarpa looks delighted to be on Trentside. He spent the weekend getting to grips with Nottingham City Centre and he was seen skateboarding around the marketplace.

There is something quite beautiful about a new player being unveiled. Even more so when they look tailor-made to wear the shirt and seem hell-bent on impressing on Trentside.

The Reds will have high hopes for Scarpa. He’s exciting, energetic and ultimately, he will hope to take advantage of being given this opportunity to star at Forest.
