Portuguese newspaper A Bola today features a big story on the many players loaned by Benfica until next summer.

One of them is Filip Krovinovic. The Croatian midfielder spent the first part of the season at West Bromwich Albion, and ended up moving to Nottingham Forest in January.

And according to A Bola, there’s a chance the 25-year-old could stay with the Reds following the end of the loan spell.

The outlet writes that Nottingham Forest ‘consider’ negotiating a fee with the Eagles for his permanent transfer, even though there’s no information on the talks being opened so far.

Krovinovic has 12 appearances for Nottingham Forest this season, and was a starter in most matches since he joined the club.

Since he’s entering the final year of his contract with Benfica, it’s very likely the Eagles will work on selling him in the summer. He’s currently valued by Transfermarkt at €4m, and we probably all know the Lisbon side will try to get a few million more.
