Nigerian international Moses Simon has reportedly agreed to personal terms with newly-promoted English Premier League club Nottingham Forest. It was gathered that the swift winger is looking to play in the English top-flight, where he will join international teammate Taiwo Awoniyi.
The 27-year-old has also been linked with other English teams, including Brighton & Hove Albion and Leeds United.
Simon joined Nantes from La Liga outfit Levante in 2020 after a year on loan at the club in 2019. The winger has scored 21 goals and provided 22 assists in 102 appearances for the Canaries. Last season Simon helped the side win the Coupe de France and secure a ninth-place finish in France’s top tier.
Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest are looking to bolster their squad before the summer transfer window ends and are considering Emmanuel Dennis as an option. The Nigerian international is desperate to move away from Championship club Watford following their relegation from the Premier League last season. During the last campaign, the 24-year-old scored 10 goals for the Hornets and made six assists. Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper is determined to bring in a striker despite already signing Dennis’ international teammates, Taiwo Awoniyi and then England star Jesse Lingard.
They are desperate to make a swift sale to raise money and possibly sign the Nigerian on loan, with an option to buy.
