Nottingham Forest are said to be close to completing the signings of Nuno Tavares and Murillo.


Previous reports have claimed that a potential deal to sign Arsenal left-back Tavares had been revived. The Reds have been looking to replace Renan Lodi who left at the end of his loan spell this summer.


It has also been reported that ‘negotiations’ were taking place to also bring Brazilian centre-back Murillo to the City Ground before Friday’s transfer deadline. The window closes at 11pm in the UK.


And now transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has posted on X that Tavares will undergo a medical at Forest on Tuesday. He also claims that a deal for Murillo was completed on Friday whilst the Times report that Murillo will undergo his medical on the same day.


Romano said: “Nuno Tavares to Nottingham Forest, here we go! Deal agreed with Arsenal on loan until June 2024. Understand loan fee will be bit higher than £1m plus £12m buy option.


“Medical tests being completed today, new left-back for Forest + Murillo deal done since Friday.”


The Reds have signed five players so far this summer. Andrey Santos signed on loan from Chelsea whilst Ola Aina, Anthony Elanga, Matt Turner and Gonzalo Montiel have also joined after Chris Wood’s loan move was made permanent.
