Nottingham Forest don’t want to sell Danilo during the summer transfer window, despite a suggestion to the contrary last week. The Brazilian only arrived at the club in January and scored three goals for the Reds as they avoided relegation from the Premier League.
According to Premier League Brazil, the Reds aren’t willing to offload the player who signed a six-and-a-half-year deal when he joined in January. However, like every player, he does have a price but it will take a huge offer should anyone fancy taking him.
This will be music to the ears of Forest supporters. Danilo became a firm fan favourite and despite him not being at the club too long, the fan base has already placed his name in the Spandau Ballet classic, ‘Gold’.
Danilo took some time to get going at Forest initially. He played against Wolves in April, however, and never looked back scoring in three successive games against Brighton, Brentford and Southampton later in the same month.
The 22-year-old was added to the Forest ranks from Palmeiras for £16 million. Last week, ESPN claimed that the Reds might be considering selling the player with his stock rising considerably already.

However, that’s seemingly not the case at all. This latest report suggests that if any top club wants to prise Danilo away from the City Ground, it will take a huge offer to tempt the club into a sale.
Forest don’t want to sell Danilo and they must stick to that stance
The youngster was brilliant towards the end of the 2022/23 campaign. As a result, this is refreshing news that the Reds aren’t weighing up any potential deal involving Danilo leaving the club.
Furthermore, it’s claimed that Forest are preparing for him to remain at the club for a while. It says in the report that a sale is unlikely to be considered during this transfer window or the next one.
Forest can’t quite be considered an established Premier League club yet. That does leave some players at the clutches of bigger ones but it’s good to hear that Danilo is a player that the Forest do want to keep.
