Sheraldo Becker has spoken out for the first time since he was linked with a move to Nottingham Forest. The Union Berlin striker has been in fine form for the Bundesliga club and the Reds are interested in another forward.
The talisman played alongside Taiwo Awoniyi during the 2021/22 campaign. Both players were instrumental as the team enjoyed a magnificent season that ended in European qualification.
Becker has continued his fine form during the current season. He’s scored eight goals and claimed six assists, with Union Berlin once again competing in the higher echelons of the division.
The player has now opened up for the first time since being linked with Forest. It’s fair to say that his comments aren’t necessarily good news for the Reds in their quest to sign him.
He told Kicker: “I have a contract, I’m staying. You never know what will happen in the future, but my focus right now is on Union. If I stay, I will give everything for Union, in every game, in every training session.”
Becker has been with Union Berlin since 2019 when he signed from ADO Den Haag. The player has a contract with the Bundesliga outfit until 2025 and they’re in no rush to sell.

This isn’t particularly good news. Forest had been very keen to try and sign the man who came through the Ajax youth academy and he looked like a very decent signing indeed.
Becker, 27, should be in the form of his life. He’s approaching his peak and is showcasing some tremendous form in a challenging European league.
The talented player would have been a useful addition to Steve Cooper’s ranks. He can play in a number of positions in the final third and his pace is definitely his main attribute.
But, it would seem as though the player is happy at Union Berlin. As a result, the Reds might have to go back to the drawing board in a bid to land a new forward player.
