Just yesterday, we covered claims from Portugal which said Nottingham Forest are trying to find a deal to keep Filip Krovinovic in the squad.

Following a short loan spell the midfielder had this year, the Championship side would now like to extend the agreement for another season.

The Portuguese media, however, has been pointing out that Benfica would rather sell Krovinovic permanently this summer.

That’s why when reading newspaper Record today, we see a couple of bad updates for Nottingham Forest fans.

Firstly, the outlet names the many players who the Eagles want to let go on a permanent deal, as the club are planning to make €50m with outgoing transfers, and the Croatian midfielder is included in that list.

Record then features a short story only to talk about Krovinovic, and claims that Fiorentina are interested in signing the 25-year-old, with that being their own information.

Then the newspaper takes claims from the Turkish media to say that Analyaspor are also interested in the player, and have already made an offer of €1.5m for him.

So in case Nottingham Forest really do want to fight to sign Krovinovic again this summer, it’s starting to look like they’ll need to join the race for a permanent deal, otherwise it’ll be hard to convince Benfica.
