Forest plotting move for Aster Vranckx

Nottingham Forest have already made seven new signings this summer and they are showing now signs of slowing down, with a new potential transfer target revealed by a reliable source.

What’s the latest?

According to journalist Loic Tanzi, the Premier League club are interested in signing Wolfsburg midfielder Aster Vranckx this summer.

Tanzi tweeted: “Two clubs advance for Aster Vranckx (2002 – Wolfsburg): Everton and N.Forest hope to be able to sign the Belgian”.

Big Yates upgrade

Although Cooper has made multiple signings already, he is yet to add a new midfielder to the ranks at the City Ground, and the prospective signing of Vranckx could be the perfect upgrade on Ryan Yates ahead of their long-awaited return to the Premier League next month.

The 19-year-old Belgian midfielder has been attracting attention due to his performances and talent displayed in the Bundesliga last season, shaping up to be a promising player.

Over 24 league appearances, Vranckx scored two goals, along with making 1.4 tackles and winning 3.3 duels per game. He was also successful in completing the majority of his dribble attempts, proving that he can offer both offensive and defensive attributes in the centre of the pitch.

Wolfsburg sporting director Marcel Schäfer held high praise for the youngster, hailing him as a “talented player” in quotes from

He described Vranckx as “a very talented player who became a first-team regular for Mechelen at the age of 17, and he can operate in different midfield roles”.

Should Forest sign Aster Vranckx?




Steve Cooper has confirmed this week that Yates will be out of the squad for at least a month due to an injury sustained after a pre-season friendly. Therefore, if Forest were able to secure a deal for the Wolfsburg starlet, it could give Vranckx the perfect opportunity to supplant the 24-year-old in the newly-promoted side next season.

The signing of the £15k-per-week Belgian could be a major coup for Cooper as he continues to improve and strengthen his team ahead of their Premier League campaign, and it would put them a good position to add quality to the heart of the squad.
