Wolves transfer news: Morgan Gibbs-White keen to join Nottingham Forest

Daniel Taylor has written in The Athletic that Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White would be open to leaving Molineux to join Nottingham Forest.

Gibbs-White has been linked with a host of clubs, including Everton and Crystal Palace, with the Wolves youngster proving to be very in demand this summer.

But the idea of moving to Forest is something which appeals to the 22-year-old.

Wolves are hopeful of keeping Gibbs-White, with Bruno Lage keen to integrate him into his first-team squad.

The club even recently offered him a new contract to show how much confidence they have in him, and to convince him to stick around.

But it seems Gibbs-White is open to leaving Molineux.

Daniel Taylor, The Athletic’s Nottingham Forest reporter, held a Q&A and was asked about the likelihood of Gibbs-White heading to the City Ground.

He said: “I anticipate a lot of questions about Morgan Gibbs-White and, yes, he is clearly one of the key targets. I’m also told he would be keen to come. He played for Steve Cooper with England’s U17s. He would be a regular starter. We have a shiny new kit. What’s not to like?

“It’s not that simple, of course. Wolves have their own priorities. It’s like buying a house: there’s a chain sometimes and you have to agree the money and hope everything falls into place.

“But it’s complicated and, if this one does happen, I’d be surprised if it is quick. Wolves have to sort out their business. Bruno Lage probably wants to speak to Gibbs-White and watch him, similar to Manchester United, Ten Hag and James Garner. There are all sorts of ifs and buts but, as it stands, I would be reasonably positive.”

Gibbs-White stance may encourage Wolves to sell, with midfielder keen to join Nottingham Forest

So it seems Gibbs-White would be open to leaving Wolves and joining newly promoted Forest this summer.

Given his stance, it could be that Wolves now look to sell.

It doesn’t seem as though he is going to sign the new contract Wolves have offered.

Potentially, the club could make a really big sale here.

We have had reports of Palace being confident of persuading him to move to Selhurst Park. And Everton are reportedly ready to table a bid.

Ultimately, it could mean Wanderers rake in quite a bit of money.
