Nottingham Forest are depleting their cash reserves in order to make a strong push for Premier League survival after lavishing bonuses on their promotion-winning squad last season. Steve Cooper is looking to expand his team. Nottingham Forest’s £100 million spending spree appears to be continuing as they target Morgan Gibbs-White. Forest manager Steve Cooper made Jesse Lingard the Reds’ tenth signing of the summer transfer window, but the club is not stopping there as they look to assemble a squad capable of remaining in the Premier League, with a £12.7 million deal for Stuttgart’s Belgium midfielder Orel Mangala also close to being announced. Forest are now attempting to entice highly-rated Wolves ace Gibbs-White away from Molineux. Cooper previously worked with Gibbs-White, 22, when the England U17s won the World Cup, with the Wolves youngster scoring in the final. When he was in charge of Swansea, he also signed him on loan for the 2020 season. And has since kept a close eye on the star’s progress, including last season when he was loaned to Sheffield United in the Championship. Gibbs-White was a standout for the Blades as they advanced to the Championship play-offs, scoring 10 goals and providing 12 assists in 37 appearances. Wolves are attempting to sign Gibbs-White to a new long-term contract at Molineux, but the star is open to reuniting with Cooper in the Premier League. Forest, who are set to give Lingard his debut against Valencia this weekend, are determined to re-establish themselves in the Premier League and are devising a large new bonus scheme to incentivize Premier League survival after paying out £12 million to their squad for promotion.

Forest reached the Premier League via the play-offs in May following Cooper’s arrival last September. It delighted the club’s Greek owner, Evangelos Marinakis, who had aimed for promotion since taking over in 2017. He was desperate to get Forest into the Premier League and approved large bonuses to motivate his players. Forest’s stars were well rewarded when the club returned to the top flight for the first time since 1999. A bonus pool of £12 million was divided among the squad based on their appearances. Brice Samba, Brennan Johnson, Scott McKenna, Ryan Yates, Joe Worrall, and Djed Spence, all of whom played nearly 40 games or more, received £300,000 on top of their basic salaries. Marinakis, on the other hand, was able to easily afford the payments after a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield at Wembley secured promotion and a £170 million windfall. Continue Reading
