Tottenham are starting to show an interest in Nottingham Forest forward Morgan Gibbs-White ahead of the summer transfer window.
According to the Daily Mail, Spurs are compiling a list of targets to potentially pursue when the summer window reopens.
Gibbs-White only signed for Forest during the summer of 2022. He cost a club-record fee from Wolves and the deal could rise above £40 million.
The 23-year-old has shown his ability during the 2022/23 campaign. He’s scored four goals for the Reds and registered six assists.
Were it not for some woeful finishing at various times this season, Gibbs-White would probably have more assists to his name.

He’s created countless chances for his teammates but they’ve not always showcased the same level of composure in front of goal.
It would be a shame if Forest were to lose Gibbs-White after a single season. If the Reds do get relegated, however, it seems highly likely that clubs will come calling.
Tottenham will appoint a new manager in the summer. His remit will be to end a turbulent period for Tottenham and some new players will definitely arrive.
Youthful exuberance could be the order of the day at Tottenham. It’s fair to say that Gibbs-White will provide them with that in abundance.
Billy Sharp is a huge fan of the Forest man. He called him brilliant back in the 2021/22 campaign when Gibbs-White was on loan with Sheffield United.

This would certainly be a big blow to Forest. However, it’s important to take any transfer stories right now with a pinch of salt.
Gibbs-White has penned a long-term contract with Forest and they won’t be under pressure to sell him.
Much will depend on how the player feels. If he thinks the Reds are in a good position to come straight back up then he could well choose to remain at the City Ground.
Gibbs-White should be kept at all costs and hopefully, Forest can fend off interest from anyone in the summer.
