Nottingham Forest in 'advanced talks' for striker after bid accepted

Nottingham Forest are reportedly in 'advanced talks' to sign Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-jo. Reports from French media outlet L'Equipe claim the Reds have had a bid accepted for the South Korea international.

Steve Cooper's side face competition from Premier League rivals Fulham and Wolves, but the report says Hwang looks set for a move to the East Midlands.

It says Forest have offered €4 million (£3.3m) for the player, plus a further million (£800k) in add-ons. Bordeaux brought Ui-jo, who has scored 29 goals in 97 appearances, from Gamba Osaka in 2019 for £1.8 million.

The report was given added validity after journalist Ekrem Konur confirmed that Forest were 'in advanced talks' to sign the striker on his Twitter page. Wolves had previous seen a €3m (£2.5m) offer turned down by the Ligue 1 side.

Bordeaux are keen to sell to raise funds after having financial restrictions imposed on them by the DNCG, French football's financial watchdog.
