Nottingham Forest transfer plan emerges as striker stance revealed

Nottingham Forest face a potential stumbling block in a transfer for Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-jo this summer, with the player reportedly not too keen on the Reds’ plan for him.

Reports over the weekend claimed that Forest have had a bid accepted for the South Korean. It is said that Forest are prepared to pay a fee of around €4 million (£3.3m) with a further €1 million (£800k) in add-ons for the 29-year-old.

French outlet L’Equipe now report that Forest’s plan, if they complete a deal, is to send the striker out on loan to sister club Olympiacos. The club is owned by Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis.

That plan could, however, be a problem in convincing the player to make the move to the City Ground this summer. The report says that Hwang is ‘not thrilled’ with the prospect of going on loan to Greece and ‘favours the experience’ of playing in England.

Hwang has just one year remaining on his contract with the French club. The forward scored a total of 11 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions last season, but is yet to be on the scoresheet so far in 2022/23.
