A report has claimed that Nottingham Forest would like to keep Keylor Navas and Renan Lodi for next season.

The latest claim from 90Min is that the Reds will open talks with PSG and Atletico Madrid regarding their players.

Lodi signed for Forest from Atletico in the summer. He made 31 appearances for the Reds and grew into his role at left-back.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed his time at the City Ground and he’s not thought to be part of Diego Simeone’s plans.

Newcastle have been linked with Lodi in the past and Forest will have to act quickly if they want to get him tied down.

Navas is a really interesting one. As a result, this latest report does perhaps come as a surprise.

Forest have also been linked with Dean Henderson and surely the club won’t sign two goalkeepers with such stellar quality.

Navas wouldn’t come cheap either. Despite being 36-years-old he earns £200,000-a-week at PSG and won’t be short of offers.

Atletico Madrid have been linked, whilst lucrative offers will likely come from Europe, the Middle East and the MLS.

Forest keen to re-sign Navas and Lodi

It’s been barely 48 hours since Forest secured their Premier League status and already things appear to be ramping up.

Lodi would be a wonderful addition to the Forest ranks. He’s produced the goods more often than not in a Forest shirt and has enjoyed his time at the club.

He’s another player who has years on his side. He fits the ethos of what Steve Cooper looks for in a player nicely and he’s now got a year in the Premier League under his belt.

Navas would be a surprise signing. Surely he doesn’t tick enough boxes in terms of being a player for the future and his wages would be a concern.

Still, if Evangelos Marinakis and Cooper believe he can still do a job, it’d see Forest sign a vastly experienced player and a proven winner.
