Wolves have been joined in the hunt for Joe Rodon by Nottingham Forest, who also want Morgan Gibbs-White.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the newly promoted Premier League side are looking to bolster their defence by signing the Tottenham Hotspur fringe player.

Rodon has hardly featured for Spurs since his transfer from Swansea City nearly two years ago.

He’s made just 24 appearances so far, and he could be allowed to depart this summer.

Apparently, Forest are looking to sign him and they hope the Steve Cooper factor will swing it for them.

Cooper formerly managed Swansea and worked with Rodon at the Liberty Stadium.

It is a potential blow for Wolves, who have been credited with an interest in the Wales international.

Journalist Ekren Konur claimed Wanderers were keen.

But the club now face strong competition from Forest, who have earmarked the 24-year-old as a ‘key’ target, along with Molineux midfielder Gibbs-White.

It has been reported that Forest could potentially smash their transfer record to sign Gibbs-White, who flourished on loan at Sheffield United last term.

Wolves fans are expecting the arrival of a new centre-half this summer, especially with Romain Saiss departing at the end of his contract.

It’s been reported previously that Lage could move Max Kilman back over to the left, suggesting the club may target a right-footer.

It seems Forest could well be a source of frustration for Wolves this summer.

Reports of their interest in Gibbs-White have been fairly widespread in recent weeks.

But now they are seemingly after Rodon, who is thought to be an option for Wolves.

It remains to be seen if both players will head to the City Ground. In an ideal world, Gibbs-White won’t be going anywhere this summer.

He’s shown at Sheffield United that he’s a much improved player now, and could really help Wolves become more potent.
