It’s rumored that Nottingham Forest and Borussia Dortmund have agreed on Gio Reyna’s loan deal.
According to recent rumors, Aston Villa is reportedly interested in signing the American midfielder, while the Reds are reportedly “in talks” to sign him. Since making his Bundesliga debut for Dortmund in January 2020, the 21-year-old has tallied 17 goals and provided 16 assists.
ESPN now claims that Reyna and Forest have agreed on a loan deal, with the possibility of a permanent move. Marseille, who the newspaper says to have signed a similar arrangement with two unidentified teams, has shown new interest, though.
According to reports, the USA international is “determined” to quit the club in the current window. Reyna’s father, Claudio, and agent, Jorge Mendes, are reportedly putting in a lot of effort to get her a move in the upcoming weeks, whether it be a temporary or permanent one.
Dortmund would reportedly want around €15million for a permanent transfer according to ESPN. The German club’s sporting director Sebastian Kehl has recently called on Reyna to put his poor run of form and fitness behind him and step up his contribution for them in the second half of the season.
“Gio had a difficult time and was often injured,” Kehl told Sky Sports Germany. “It’s not easy because of the line-up we have in the centre. I can understand that he may be dissatisfied at the moment. But it’s also important for him to step on the gas.”
Reyna would become head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s first signing of the January transfer window. Forest’s B-team ranks were boosted with the arrival of young defender Jamie Newton from Rangers earlier in the month.
