Nottingham Forest are closing in on Domen Crnigoj with the Venezia midfielder likely to become a Premier League player sooner rather than later, as reported by tuttosport.

With five key players leaving and fan favorite Brice Samba potentially following in their footsteps, it’s been a rough start to the summer for Steve Cooper, Dane Murphy and company.

Things are picking up speed now, however, as Taiwo Awoniyi joins from Union Berlin in a £17.5million record deal. Dean Henderson is also expected to come on loan from Manchester United.

Nottingham Forest at Domen Crnigoj speaks

Crnigoj won’t make quite as many headlines. After all, the 26-year-old Slovenia international is hardly a household name on the banks of the River Trent or anywhere else in Britain.

tuttomercatoweb reported on Wednesday that Nottingham Forest had started talks with Crnigoj. The two-time European champions are reportedly “confident” a deal can be agreed.

And according to Tuttosport, the former Lugano ace is now on the verge of going to the Premier League. Negotiations remain active. And at least the 6ft 2ins enforcer will give Venezia a decent profit. After all, he voluntarily moved to Italy from Switzerland a few years ago.

Crnigoj, a versatile central midfielder who can also play on the right flank, could be tasked with replacing James Garner upon his return to Manchester United. He scored three times in Serie A last season, a respectable tally for a footballer plying his trade for a club stuck at the bottom of the table.
