Nottingham Forest are now looking to snap up Crvena zvezda midfielder Kings Kangwa amid interest from Celtic.

That is according to The Guardian’s Ed Aarons, who claims that Forest have now held talks with Vrvena zvezda over a deal for Kangwa.

It’s stated that Kangwa is likely to leave for around €3million (£2.6million) this summer and Forest are trying to get a deal done.

French duo Lille and Montpellier are also trying to sign Kangwa this summer, whilst Scottish champions Celtic are interested too.

Kangwa predominantly plays as a central midfielder, but has also played out wide previously in his career.

Who is Nottingham Forest target Kings Kangwa?

Kangwa hails from Kasama in Zambia, and he has picked up 15 caps for his country, scoring three goals.

If Kangwa joins Forest, he would become just the sixth Zambian to play in the Premier League.

Patson Daka, Neil Gregory, Emmanuel Mayuka, Collins Mbesuma and Enock Mwepu have flown the flag for Zambia in the Premier League before and Kangwa could follow suit.

Kangwa started out with Happy Hearts and Buildcon over in Zambia before being snapped up by Russian side Arsenal Tula in 2019.

The 24-year-old bagged six goals and nine assists in 55 games for Arsenal Tula, prompting Crvena zvezda to pounce last summer.

Kangwa has been a vital player for Serbia’s top club Crvena zvezda, who you may better know as Red Star.

Kangwa racked up 12 goals and six assists in all competitions this past season, putting himself on Forest’s radar.

Crvena zvezda won the Serbian SuperLiga title with an unbeaten record, claiming 97 points to once again win the title.

Kangwa was vital in their success and could now earn himself a huge move to the Premier League, giving Steve Cooper another midfield option if this deal comes off.
