Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Ethan Horvath will have a wealth of interest from Europe for his services this summer. The custodian helped Luton Town win promotion to the Premier League during 2022/23 and is now a wanted man.

Horvath has aspirations of being the number one goalkeeper in the USA team. It’s one of the reasons why he joined Forest in 2021 and he will be desperate to continue playing regular football.

During 2021/22, he made 11 appearances between the sticks for Forest. Ultimately, he was unable to permanently dislodge Brice Samba from his position as the number one goalkeeper.

It’s been claimed by The Athletic that Horvath will have interest from European clubs for his signature. However, previous reports suggest that Luton do hold an option to sign him on a permanent basis.

Under Rob Edwards, the goalkeeper has really kicked on. He kept 20 clean sheets during 2022/23 and helped Luton finish third before they beat Coventry in the Play-Off Final.

Horvath will only have a single season to run on his deal at Forest. He’s made just 11 appearances for the Reds and that simply won’t do for a player who is now accustomed to regular game time.

Horvath was fantastic for the promoted side. Although the club may fancy attracting a better goalkeeper with their Premier League riches remains to be seen but the 27-year-old could be a useful player.

European clubs hold interest in Forest man Horvath

It seems unlikely that Forest will utilise Horvath next season. They’re hoping to sign Dean Henderson from Manchester United and Wayne Hennessey is still contracted at the club.

A move to play in Europe is surely one that would appeal to Horvath. Okay, he might hold out for a permanent move to Luton but if that’s not on the cards, then surely he’d be keen to go elsewhere and play.

Horvath went to the World Cup with the USA at the end of 2022. He wasn’t the first choice and if he’s got any chance of dispossessing Matt Turner he needs to be playing regular football.

The player won’t be doing that anytime soon at Forest. With that in mind, he will hope that some of these European suitors ramp up their interest in the coming weeks.
