Galatasaray have had an €8 million bid rejected for Nottingham Forest target Nicolas Dominguez.

The Turkish side are set to return with another offer for the 25-year-old midfielder, with the Bologna midfielder open to waiting for Galatasaray as he wants to play European football this season.

Steve Cooper’s side remain interested in the former Velez Sarsfield man, but may miss out on another target this window.

The Serie A side are said to be holding out for a fee in the region of €15 million for their captain, who has been capped 11 times by Argentina.

The box-to-box midfielder featured 31 times in the league for Bologna, scoring three times.

Who is Nottingham Forest target, Nicolas Dominguez?

As previously mentioned, the Argentinian came through the ranks at Velez Sarsfield back in his home country, before joining his current side Bologna in 2019, where he’s made 104 appearances in all competitions.

He is their current club captain, who likes to create from deep midfield positions, with his tally of 5.9 progressive passes making him an attractive signing for multiple reasons.

His current tally of shots per game reflects his box-to-box play. The 25-year-old averages 1.7 shots per game, a tally higher than current Forest man Brennan Johnson.

They may face heavy competition from Galatasaray, but the €15 million fee being touted for Dominguez would be a great price for a player of his defensive and attacking capabilities.

He would add depth to the Reds’ midfield, whilst providing a completely new option and play style to the midfield trio.
