Nottingham Forest are ‘very interested’ in Chambly defender Oumar Gonzalez and could be set to make a move for him.

Gonzalez has enjoyed a strong campaign with the Ligue 2 side, making 22 appearances in all competitions and managing one goal and one assist.

That has earned him attention from outside of France, with a report in May stating the club would struggle to keep hold of him this summer.

Nottingham Forest have been named as potential suitors and were even rumoured to have made a ‘seven-figure’ offer for him.

There has been little information about a potential move since then, but France Football insist they remain ‘very interested’ in signing the centre back.

They report that Gonzalez is one of the ‘most followed’ players in Ligue 2 and Nottingham Forest, who are currently fifth in the Championship and very much in the promotion hunt, are among those teams.

As such they ‘should make an offer’ for the player at some point, although it is not made clear how much they would be offering at this stage.

A deal should not be too expensive, though, as the centre-back us currently in the final year of his contract, which expires next summer.

Whatever price they pay, Chambly will be forced to pay a percentage to FC Metz, who included a resale clause in the deal when he left last summer.
