James Garner transfer claims

Nottingham Forest are reportedly back in for Manchester United midfielder James Garner amid hopes of a possible summer move.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at the City Ground, where he played a huge part in the club's promotion to the Premier League. Garner appeared 49 times for the Reds last summer and played a starring role in Steve Cooper's midfield alongside Ryan Yates.

A possible return to the East Midlands has been tipped throughout the summer transfer window, but the 21-year-old remained at Old Trafford to be part of Erik ten Hag's squad for pre-season. However, Garner was an unused substitute in United's 2-1 home defeat to Brighton and they are said to be keen on signing Juventus' Adrien Rabiot.

The Reds are on the search for a left-back this summer as Steve Cooper continues the rebuild of his squad for the Premier League season. Forest looked to be closing in on a deal for Real Betis defender Alex Moreno, having agreed a fee with his club, but the player announced this week that he has decided to remain in Spain.

That has left Forest having to turn to other targets with under four weeks of the transfer window remaining. One name to be linked is Villarreal left-back Pervis Estupinan, with the club said to have made an enquiry for the 24-year-old.
