Nottingham Forest drop out of the race to sign Nicolas Tagliafico

About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

The newly promoted Premier League side has been active in the transfer market and is looking to sign Nicolas Tagliafico. The Reds have already completed major signings like Neco Williams and Omar Richards to bolster their defence. However, the club has been linked with Nicolas Tagliafico in recent weeks.

The Argentine is keen to secure a move away and many clubs have come forward with interest. Brighton and Nottingham Forest from England are two clubs interested in the player. However, the left-back is looking for Champions League football, which both the English clubs are unable to offer.

Another top European club that is in line for the defender is the Spanish giants, Barcelona. The Catalans are in a difficult position financially and cannot spend big on transfers.

Nicolas Tagliafico can be a good option at Left-back

Barcelona is unable to splash on transfers due to their difficult financial position. The Blaugrana is looking for a left-back. Meanwhile, the Argentine can be a viable option financially. Ajax are reportedly looking to receive £4 million for the defender. The Argentine earns £44,000-a-week and is likely to demand a pay rise when he leaves Ajax. However, the increased wage will not be much of a problem as the players suits their style of play perfectly.

Tagliafico is known for his passing ability. He also has the capability to create chances for the forwards from the left flank. The Argentine is also capable of slotting in as a centre-back and offers versatility to his club. The Blaugrana can benefit from the acquisition of the highly rated defender and become a valuable addition to the squad.

Nottingham Forest has swiftly signed suitable alternatives as Tagliafico’s move seemed a far-fetched dream. The Argentine would have been a marquee signing, however, the club was always distant link.

Nonetheless, the Reds have a lot to be optimistic about as they have secured some good players for their first Premier League campaign since 1999 and bolstered their squad with reinforcements.
