Journalist: Arsenal is now considering a bid for a £21.5 million Nottingham Forest target.

Arsenal might compete with Nottingham Forest for the services of Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson.

After Jurrien Timber’s injury, reporter Rudy Galetti has confirmed that Mikel Arteta’s team might have to look for another defender.

The team of Steve Cooper has spent the entire summer looking for a new center back, with Nelsson being just one of many candidates on the Reds’ shortlist.

Nelsson, a 24-year-old Danish center back, wants to leave Galatasaray in order to play in a higher league, so Forest has had multiple offers for him rejected.

The Turkish team is seeking £21.5 million for the defender, but the Reds might need to look elsewhere because Arsenal is interested in signing the player who is wanted by Forest.

The Reds have been looking at options for central defenders all over the world, but they might have made a breakthrough in their search.

Fabrizio Romano stated last night that the club had made a bid for Corinthians defender Murillo, with the 21-year-old already agreeing to personal terms.

The Reds’ search for a new speedy center-back may now be over with the potential arrival of Murillo, making it clear that strengthening the Forest back line is a top priority this transfer window.

Another encouraging development is that Senegalese defender Moussa Niakhate, who suffered a dislocated elbow during preseason, has fully recovered and could start tomorrow’s game at Old Trafford.

A week remains until the summer transfer window closes, and Forest still have a number of deals in the works, some of which may go down to the wire.
