Nottingham Forest have ‘reached an agreement’ with Paris Saint Germain for defender Loïc Mbe Soh.
That’s according to RMC Sport journalist Loïc Tanzi, who says the two sides have reached an agreement that will see Nottingham Forest pay money and give the French champions a percentage on any future sale.
Sabri Lamouchi’s side were first linked with the 19-year-old centre back four days ago when Le Parisien reported that they had ‘clearly positioned’ themselves to make a move.
In fact, the same report claimed that Nottingham Forest Director of Football François Modesto had ‘recently contacted’ PSG about the player, who they have agreed to let go after he decided not to renew his contract in Paris.
Le #PSG et Nottingham Forest ont trouvé un accord pour le transfert de Loïc Mbe Soh (de l’argent + % à la revente). Le défenseur est passé dire au revoir à ses coéquipiers aujourd’hui #Mercato #RMCLive

It seems those talks have advanced since, with an agreement now in place for him to make the move to the City Ground according to Tanzi.
He does not make it clear how much Nottingham Forest are paying for Mbe Soh, although he does say that the player was ‘dropped by’ PSG to say goodbye to his teammates today.
That would indicate a move is pretty imminent, and the defender is set to become their seventh signing of the summer transfer window.
