The Athletic have released an article ranking agents’ votes on the worst signing of the summer, with one of Nottingham Forest’s new players included.

Forest made 13 new signings once again this summer, with one of their new arrivals in the top eight worst deals as ranked by Premier League agents.

Kai Havertz tops the list, with Moises Caicedo and Mason Mount also included within the top three of the rankings.

Divock Origi’s arrival at Forest from AC Milan on loan has been chosen as the eighth worst deal completed in the Premier League this summer, a harsh choice it has to be said.

Origi ranked as one of the worst transfers this summer

The former Liverpool striker joined Steve Cooper’s side on a season-long loan with an option to buy for €4.5 million next summer.

At 28, Origi is coming into his prime years as a centre-forward and although he may not have set the world alight in Milan, he could be a great squad player for the Reds.

He enjoyed his best spell at Anfield as an impact player off the bench, with a similar role expected at the City Ground, with Taiwo Awoniyi the first-choice striker at the club.

The deal for Origi is potentially risk-free, with Forest only paying for his wages this season.

Should the deal be successful they can make the deal permanent, but if he fails to deliver he can return back to Italy.

However, there is no way this signing should be ranked as one of the worst this summer.
