Nottingham Forest are now likely to sign Ibrahim Sangare before tonight’s transfer deadline. The Reds have ramped up their attempts to sign the player, with the news that Brennan Johnson looks set to sign for Tottenham.
According to Daniel Taylor of The Athletic, the Reds are now likely to sign Sangare. The PSV man has been the long-running saga of the summer from a Forest perspective, with PSG and Bayern Munich showing interest at one stage.
It’s also been claimed that a fee and personal terms are not expected to be a problem with Sangare. The player is now open to the move and is just awaiting the green light to undergo a medical; likely when Johnson signs for Spurs.
Taylor believes this would be one of the club’s best deals in years. He has been critical of the club in the past but it would seem the Forest supporter likes this deal.
Sangare has been with PSV since 2020 when he signed from Toulouse. He’s been a powerhouse in their midfield even since and starred as the Eredivisie outfit qualified for the Champions League beating Rangers earlier this week.

Now, he could be about to embark on a journey to the Premier League. Liverpool were thought to be admirers at one stage and the hope will be that he comes to Forest and shows bigger clubs exactly what they’re missing out on.
Taylor says Forest likely to sign Sangare
This would be a remarkable deal. The Reds have been after a defensive midfielder all summer long and now it looks like they’re going to grab their ‘unstoppable’ number one target.
The Reds have been keen to sign a midfield lynchpin all summer and Sangare was the top target. Forest now look to be edging closer and all eyes are on the Johnson deal.
He’s now in London and will head to the club’s training ground once the clubs have agreed on a deal. It’s likely that it goes through and things could progress quickly.
Last night it was claimed that Forest had missed out on Sangare. Now, however, business could be about to pick up.
