Nottingham Forest is one of the most active clubs in Europe in the ongoing window transfer. Now is the time for a record purchase of Morgan Gibbs-White.
Ultimately, the purchase amount from Wolverhampton Wanderers was £ 25 million base (€ 29.5 million). In addition, there will be 7-10 million pounds with quite simple bonus conditions (probably depending on the number of appearances of the player or the maintenance of the team in the Premier League). Together with the more difficult to execute bonuses, the maximum transaction can amount to an impressive 42.5 million pounds.
Gibbs-White signed a contract with the new club until June 30, 2027 and will wear a “heavy”, as befits a record-breaking transfer for Forest, the number 10 jersey.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder is a homegrown of Wolverhampton and has so far only left on loan – to Swansea City and Sheffield United.
It was in the latter club that he showed his brilliant side in the last season of the Championship, noting eleven goals and nine assists in 35 games.
Nottingham Forest thus carried out its sixteenth window transfer, and spent about 150 million euros. In the Premier League, only Chelsea made more expensive transfers, and even Manchester City spent a smaller amount on purchases.
To date, Forest’s record holder was Taiwo Awoniyi, brought also this summer – for around 20 million euros from Uniona Berlin. Before the window, the title of the most expensive player in the history of a deserved club was awarded to Portuguese João Carvalho, imported from Benfica in the summer of 2018 for 15 million euros.
So in the summer, Nottingham was joined by Morgan Gibbs-White, Remo Freuler, Taiwo Awoniyi, Neco Williams, Emmanuel Dennis, Orel Mangala, Moussa Niakhaté, Giulian Biancone, Omar Richards, Lewis O’Brien, Harry Toffolo, Brandon Aguilera, Jesse Lingouaté, Cheikhou Kouy. , Dean Henderson and Wayne Hennessey.
More moves can be expected, and his interests include winger Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven and side defender Alvaro Odriozola from Real Madrid.
