What’s the latest?
According to journalist Alan Nixon, Nottingham Forest are plotting a record-breaking £20m bid for Morgan Gibbs-White this summer.
Should Forest sign Morgan Gibbs-White?
As per the report, Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen to keep hold of their player who has been impressing in the Championship this season on loan with Sheffield United, however, the midfielder desires consistent game time which is something Wolves haven’t been able to provide so far.
Cooper will love him
Gibbs-White is no stranger to Steve Cooper as the pair worked together at Swansea City and England U17s, so there is no doubt that the Forest manager would love to have him at the City Ground as he already knows his potential and strengths.
This season the 22-year-old has been impressive at Sheffield United in the centre of the pitch scoring 12 goals, contributing ten assists and creating 16 big chances for his team, playing a huge part in their Championship play-offs challenge.
Gibbs-White has been receiving high praise from his teammates too with David McGoldrick hailing his influence on the team this season.
McGoldrick claimed: “He’s got the world at his feet. You know, great kid, great player. He’s got all the ability in the world.”
With that being said, there is clearly potential there for the youngster to thrive in any team he is given the opportunity to play consistently for and if Bruno Lage cannot offer him that at Wolves next season, then it could be mutually advantageous for both the club to profit and Gibbs-White to move on somewhere else.
Nottingham Forest could be the perfect next step and a golden opportunity for the player to get more Premier League experience if Cooper offers him a key role in the team next season.
By adding his creativity and flair, Gibbs-White could form a formidable attacking partnership with Brennan Johnson to compete.
