Gustavo Scarpa has appeared to dismiss reports that claim he wants to leave Nottingham Forest this summer. The Brazilian only arrived in January from Palmeiras and is still settling in England.

Some reports emerged yesterday afternoon that claimed he was keen to be loaned back to Brazil. UOL journalist Bruno Andrade made that claim, although he rattled Scarpa into a response.

Later in the day, the Brazilian forward took to Instagram to dismiss any notion of a departure. In a rough translation, he basically claimed that things are made up because some journalists have nothing better to do and it was a ‘crazy’ claim.

It has been a frustrating time of things for Scarpa at Forest so far. He arrived after winning the Golden Ball award after a blistering season with Palmeiras where he helped them win the title.

Scarpa is yet to score a goal or register an assist for the Reds. In fairness, however, he’s not started too many games and he might view the 2023/24 campaign as a big one for himself on a personal level.

The 29-year-old will hope to kick on during the next 12 months. He won’t feel as though he’s done himself justice in England yet but it would seem he’s got no desire to leave.

It’s good news that the Brazilian has felt the need to take to social media himself. He clearly wants to give a good account of himself at Forest and is desperate to impress next season.

Scarpa is a very likeable character. When he’s not playing for Forest, he’s usually doing a rubix cube in 27 seconds, or skateboarding through Nottingham city centre!

The player is part of a big Brazilian contingent at the City Ground. Felipe and Danilo are his teammates, whilst several other compatriots have been linked with Forest this summer.

Scarpa does still have to prove himself to the supporters. His latest claims, however, suggest that he’s got no desire to walk away from his adventure in England just yet.
