Nottingham Forest keen on signing Sheyi Ojo

According to a report from Goal.com (h/t Nottinghamshire Live), EFL Championship outfit Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo in the ongoing transfer window.

The 23-year-old Ojo has been on the club’s books since 2011, having arrived from the MK Dons academy. He made his first-team debut for the Reds way back in January 2016, aged 18. However, he hasn’t been able to carve out a place in the starting XI, owing to the options at manager Jurgen Klopp’s disposal.

This has seen Ojo leave the club for a series of loan spells, with the Englishman having stints with Wigan Athletic, Wolves, Fulham, Stade de Reims, and most recently, Rangers.

Ojo enjoyed a fairly productive season with the Scottish giants under the tutelage of Reds’ legend Steven Gerrard. He ended the 2019/20 term with a return of five goals and seven assists from 36 matches in all competitions.

With no immediate chance of him breaking into the first-team at Anfield, Liverpool are reportedly prepared to let him leave, either permanently or on another loan spell.

And Nottingham Forest are lining up a swoop for the former England U21 international, as per the report. However, they will face competition for Ojo’s signing from fellow second division outfits Reading and Huddersfield Town. (h/t Nottinghamshire Live)
