Nottingham Forest are still keen to complete the signing of Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa during the transfer window. The Reds look to have missed out on Dean Henderson who will now sign for Crystal Palace in the coming days.

According to The Telegraph, Sa is still in the sights of Forest. He’s been with Wolves since 2021. He replaced Rui Patricio who headed to Roma and signed from Olympiacos where he worked under Evangelos Marinakis for three seasons.

Sa has been a quality performer for Wolves. Last season, he played all but two of the 38 games his teams played in the Premier League. In October, he saved a Brennan Johnson penalty as Wolves beat Forest 1-0 at Molineux.

Despite being the number one in possession of the gloves at Wolves, the club could sell him. Initial talks between Forest and the Molineux-based outfit have taken place and he could cost as little as £6 million.

Wolves have financial fair play breathing on them and several departures have already taken place. Nathan Collins and Ruben Neves are two of the most high-profile departures this summer.

Sa has made 76 appearances for the club in total. He’s kept 23 clean sheets during that period and would likely represent a pretty shrewd signing by the Reds.

Sa would be a pretty good signing considering that he wouldn’t cost much at all. Furthermore, it’s already evident that he’s capable of playing in the Premier League.

Andy Thompson spent several years at Wolves. Back in August 2022, he called the goalkeeper ‘outstanding’ and claimed that he’d proved to be a real bargain when Wolves signed him for £7 million.

It’s probably wise for Forest to try and target another new goalkeeper this summer. Matt Turner has done well since coming in but ultimately, the Reds need some competition for his place.

Ethan Horvath is the other custodian and he’s been on the bench for the three games that Forest have played this season. He might want to go and play regularly though and perhaps he will leave if Sa can be signed.
