Nottingham Forest have joined West Ham United, Fulham and a few other clubs in the chase for São Paulo’s Pablo Maia.

On Wednesday, journalist André Hernan explained the Hammers and Marco Silva’s side looked at the 21-year-old in January. He had also stated the player could be moving to Europe in the summer, where he’s highly rated in the Premier League.

Bolavip Brasil relay Hernan’s claim and then provide their exclusive information about English interest in the midfielder. This is when West Ham, Fulham and Nottingham Forest are mentioned.

It’s claimed the two London clubs and the Tricky Trees have carried out polls recently. The Premier League trio seem to have made contact with the Brazilian club as the report’s title states they ‘knock on the door’ of São Paulo president Julio Casares for Maia.

São Paulo, for their part, ‘should negotiate’ the midfielder’s sale in the summer. They have already warned his suitors business can only be carried out for a fee of around R$60m [€11m].

The South American side have to raise funds and plan to achieve it by selling Maia and two other players.

Bolavip Brasil only explained that West Ham, Fulham, Nottingham Forest and others have contacted São Paulo, without specifying who is leading the transfer race.
