- Forest has already spent £85m on 11 players this year and they are not stopping

They also spoke to Real Betis about a deal for Alex Moreno, but they are struggling to agree on the terms.

Forest has signed no fewer than 12 players this summer, including Jesse Lingard on a free transfer, Dean Henderson on loan from Manchester United, striker Taiwo Awoniyi and fullback Neco Williams from Liverpool.
The club has reportedly spent around £85 million on their deals and they are hungry for much more.
