Nottingham Forest are set to continue their transfer window spending spree with ‘another big name’ – with fans speculating it’s Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey.
The newly-promoted Premier League side have been the most active club in the top flight this summer – with Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard becoming their 11th signing of the window.
But it’s understood that Lingard, who signed a £120,000-a-week deal with Forest on Thursday, will be the ‘first of more’ as Steve Cooper’s side look to bring in additional reinforcements.
Jesse Lingard has signed for Nottingham Forest on a one-year contract from Man United
Fans are convinced Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey will be next through the doors at the City Ground
According to The Sun, the England midfielder is the ‘first of more’ as there is still the possibility of ‘another big name’ moving to the City Ground.
Lingard signed a bumper contract approaching £120,000 a week with the newly promoted side for an initial 12-month deal.
Forest had already spent more than £70million on nine players, as well as signing goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan from Manchester United, but Lingard’s signing takes their campaign to a new level – which they are looking to push even further.
The 29-year-old appeared on social media to announce his decision to join Steve Cooper’s side
After news broke on social media that Lingard could be ‘the first of more’ – Forest fans have speculated who could be the next star coming through the doors.
One fan said: ‘I just have a feeling it’ll be him [Ramsey]- contract about to be terminated at Juve,’ followed by a GIF of Ramsey in Juventus colours.
‘This has Aaron Ramsey on a free all over it,’ another added as he replied to a tweet suggesting that there was another superstar on the way.
Rumours of Ramsey’s signing are boosted by the fact the 31-year-old spent a brief spell on loan at Forest in 2010, where he made just five appearances before returning to Arsenal.
Fans were quick to throw up suggestions as to who the next star joining the club could be
Ramsey was in talks with Juventus to settle the final year of his contract earlier this month
Earlier this month, Ramsey was in talks with Juventus to settle the final year of his contract and allow him to sign for another club for free.
The Wales star is prepared to walk away from the Serie A club, where he earns about £400,000 a week, to ensure he can play regular football with the World Cup just four months away.
Despite his struggles under Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus, Ramsey remains a key player for his country and has produced consistently impressive performances.
