Nottingham Forest are targeting Ibrahim Sangare this summer and his manager has confirmed that he can leave. Peter Bosz has basically suggested that he’s powerless to stop his star midfielder leave this summer.
The Reds are desperate to add a defensive midfielder to their ranks this summer. Forest are targeting Sangare as the number one target to fill the void but face big competition.
PSV play Sturm Graz tonight in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier. The Eredivisie outfit certainly won’t want the midfielder to go anywhere before they’ve negotiated a place into the group stages of the competition.
Bosz has admitted that he seems to be fighting a losing battle, however. He doesn’t want the player to leave and is hopeful that the window closes with Sangare still in their ranks.
The PSV boss told Voetbal Primeur: “That he can still leave, that’s right. We all know that. I think he plays well. He’s not distracted by what might be going on. I have no influence on the choice of the Ivorian, but I hope he will be kept.”

Bosz admits he’s powerless over Forest target Sangare
This is positive news but the links to Sangare have seemingly gone a bit quiet. That could be down to PSV wanting to keep him until after the club’s Champions League qualifier.
Forest will need to have a contingency plan, however. They can’t let the window close without landing another defensive midfielder.
Tyler Adams is another to be linked with a move to the club. He is now in talks with Chelsea though and ultimately he’s likely to go to Stamford Bridge.
Sangare would be a very useful addition to the Forest ranks. He’s been with PSV since 2020 when he signed from Toulouse and has made over 130 appearances for the club.
At 25-years-old, the Ivorian player would be a quality addition to the ranks. He fits the profile of a Forest signing very nicely indeed and hopefully, a deal can be struck before the window closes.
