On Tuesday, Internacional president Alessandro Barcellos confirmed his side’s desire to sign Nottingham Forest’s Gustavo Scarpa.

The Brazilian club will be joined by Atlético Mineiro in the chase for the 29-year-old. That’s according to Globo Esporte, who say the latter have rekindled their interest in the Nottingham Forest man, who is currently on loan at Olympiacos.

Last month, Rádio Itatiaia reported Atlético Mineiro ended their chase for the attacking midfielder due to his desire to continue in Europe.

Globo state the South American side haven’t given up on the Nottingham Forest owned player and have ‘resumed negotiations’ with the Tricky Trees.

A source has informed the outlet that Atlético Mineiro are ‘battling for Scarpa’ and Steve Cooper’s side are the ‘main barrier’.

Atlético Mineiro have to convince the Premier League side in order to stand a chance to sign Scarpa. The report says Nottingham Forest haven’t yet made a decision on whether they are willing to negotiate for the Brazilian, who has a deal until 2026.

Globo make it clear there’s no official proposal on the table for Scarpa, who is valued at €4m, and the two clubs have been holding talks to reach an agreement.

There’s also no mention if Scarpa is willing to return to Brazil in January, and there’s been mixed reports on that recently.
