Nottingham Forest have parked their interest in youngster Adama Bojang, with their Premier League status currently in a perilous situation. Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Tottenham are also keen on signing the African starlet.
Bojang is set to be available for a bargain price this summer. It’s been claimed by the Daily Mail that he will be available for just £650,000, with his current club Steve Biko FC keen to sell.
Forest, at present, are parking their interest in Bojang. They can’t make any serious attempts to sign the centre-forward at this stage as they don’t know what division they will be in.
By the time Forest do know where they’ll be playing next year, perhaps it’ll be too late. Another report from the Daily Mail claims that Napoli and Tottenham are leading the chase for his signature.
Bojang’s price tag might leave some supporters wondering why Forest can’t just sign him anyway. However, the Reds will want to trim their squad down first should they drop back to the Championship.

Bojang, 18, has made six appearances for The Gambia at under-18 level, scoring four goals. It would seem as though he’s highly rated and a move to Europe is on the horizon for him.
Forest park their interest in Bojang
Bojang is aiming big. He wants to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo during his career and fancies himself being a similar player.
He recently told BBC Sport Africa: “I want to be like Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s my favourite when it comes to big-name players.
“I’ve been watching his videos on YouTube after games. He posts his workout there so sometimes I try to watch those and motivate myself through that.”
Bojang stands at 6ft 3in and any club that signs him will view him as a target man option. That’s clearly his game and Forest will need strikers in the summer.
Forest are going to have to fight off some fierce competition to sign Bojang. For now, their priorities are elsewhere and they desperately need to find a win on the pitch.
