Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Ethan Horvath is attracting attention from European outfits ahead of the summer transfer window, according to The Athletic.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper joined Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2021 from Belgium outfit Club Brugge.

Horvath was part of Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest squad which earned promotion to the Premier League in the 2021/22 season.

Last summer, the Tricky Trees sent Horvath on loan to Luton Town and the American international established himself as a regular in the Hatters side.

The American international featured in 44 league games for Luton, keeping 19 clean sheets and helped Rob Edwards side earn promotion through the playoffs.

And it has been claimed that, due to his impressive performances last season, the Nottingham Forest star is attracting interest from clubs outside of England.

Horvath has an option to buy clause in his loan deal with Luton and the freshly promoted side are yet to trigger that.

The American still has one year left on his contract with Nottingham Forest and it remains to be seen what lies ahead for him.

Nottingham Forest could finally move for Che Adams after rejection

Nottingham Forest could finally get their hands on Che Adams this summer, almost 10 years after Fawaz Al Hasawi snubbed him. Following relegation, Southampton are now preparing to accept offers for their versatile forward, with the Reds keen.

The Athletic claims that it could take between £6 million and £8 million to sign Adams. If Forest do get their man during the summer transfer window, the deal will be one that has been in the making for nine years!

Back in 2014, Stuart Pearce recommended Adams to Al Hasawi who was owning the club at the time. Much to the manager’s dismay, he wouldn’t sanction a deal for the player who was with non-league outfit Ilkeston Town at the time.

Forest’s loss was Sheffield United’s gain. They picked up the player for a very small fee and he soon started to perform on the professional stage. He also turned out for Birmingham before signing for Southampton.

Despite a drab season for the Saints, Adams wasn’t in bad form. He scored 10 goals during 2022/23 but three of those did come in the Carabao Cup against far weaker opposition.

Still, Forest will be in the market for some more firepower this summer. Taiwo Awoniyi top scored last season with 11 goals in all competitions but in terms of strikers, there isn’t much else.

Forest could finally sign Adams

To spend the money being quoted on a backup striker wouldn’t be too bad. Adams has just a year to run on his contract and they’re under pressure to sell him this summer.

Adams would likely welcome a return to the East Midlands. The Leicester-born player would surely jump at the chance to stay in the Premier League and he could be useful for Forest.

The 26-year-old is at a decent age and he’s relatively versatile too. He spent the majority of last season playing as a centre-forward but he’s not averse to playing out wide too.

Adams might have welcomed a move to Forest back in 2014. If he signs for the club this summer, he could really make a mockery of Al Hasawi’s decision not to sign him back then.
