Nottingham Forest are considering ending their interest in Fortuna Sittard’s Zian Flemming as the two clubs are too far apart at this moment in time.
That’s according to Voetbal International, who cover the situation around Flemming and his potential move to Forest today.
They say that a move to Nottingham Forest is currently ‘a long way off’ because an agreement between the Championship club and Fortuna is ‘currently far away’.
They explain that while Forest ‘signed up’ for Flemming a few weeks ago and have already made several bids, the gap between ‘supply and demand’ is still large. In other words, they’re yet to get anywhere near what the Dutch club want.
Such is the situation that Nottingham Forest are now considering switching their attention to alternative options and abandoning a move for Flemming, who managed 12 goals and seven assists in 33 games last season.
Who those alternatives may be isn’t mentioned, nor do VI say what Fortuna want or what Forest have offered up to this point.
Either way, it seems it’s not enough, and they’ll either have to up their game or simply give up and get an alternative option like they suggest.
