Harry Toffolo is edging closer towards a move to Anderlecht and he’s visited the club already. Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the left-sided wing-back is set to join the club very soon.

The Belgian giants are struggling during 2022/23 and currently sit in 11th place. Intriguingly, this deal won’t sit well with some fans given the controversies involving Anderlecht bribing a referee and robbing Forest during a European tie in 1984.

Still, that is in the past and Toffolo will go in search of some badly needed first-team football. The 27-year-old has hardly played this season having lost his place in the team to Renan Lodi.

Now, Toffolo will head out on loan to the Belgian giants. He will spend the rest of 2022/23 on loan with the European club and he will hope to quickly get in the team and play some games.

The ex-Huddersfield man signed for Forest shortly after the Reds had beaten the West Yorkshire-based club in the play-off final. He cost around £2.5 million and did look okay in the early stages of the campaign.

Recently, however, he’s found himself out of favour. In recent weeks he’s spent some time not even making Steve Cooper’s 20-man squad and now some space will be made for new recruits.

This is a good move for the Forest man. The Reds will likely refrain from selling the player until at least the summer, especially whilst their Premier League status for next season is yet to be secured.

Toffolo is a very good EFL player. It’s fair to say that he’s encountered some troubles adapting to the Premier League and has been relatively inconsistent when called upon.

Still, he’s a decent player to have in the squad but clearly, Cooper wants to make some room for some possible new signings before the transfer window closes.

Toffolo needs to get back to the form he showed last season at Huddersfield. He will be fully focused on Anderlecht for the next few months but he will have one eye on what’s happening at Forest as he ponders his next career step.
