As the rumour linking Fluminense defender Nino to a Nottingham Forest move became very quiet in the past few days, Brazilian outlet Trivela now brings a very interesting update on the scenario.

The outlet starts by recalling that the Tricky Trees had indeed been the strongest team in the race, as they promised to trigger his €7m release clause at the end of the year, letting the Rio de Janeiro club stay with 20% of a future transfer.

However, it’s claimed that when the player suffered a knee injury last month, Nottingham Forest got ‘worried’ about it and took a step back. The player ‘did not hide’ how disappointed he got with the situation.

Trivela writes that while the Reds didn’t take a firm decision on whether to go for him or not, other clubs started showing up willing to pay for Nino’s release clause. That includes Premier League sides who promised to make offers.

It’s said Nino’s desire is indeed to move to England, and there are two clubs, both out of the big six, who should make their offers in the ‘coming weeks’.

Despite this, Nottingham Forest are said to still be in the fight, and we shall see if their indecision will interfere with how the player eventually reacts to their bid.
