Steve Cooper not interested in Chelsea's problems ahead of Nottingham  Forest's trip

Latest Nottingham Forest news as NottinghamshireLive looks at players linked with the Reds in summer transfer window

Nottingham Forest hope the 13 signings they made this summer can help take them to the next level in the Premier League.

The Reds did some impressive business during the transfer window, leaving head coach Steve Cooper with plenty of options when the action resumes after the international break. Owner Evangelos Marinakis talked earlier this week about a transfer plan which was “very clear and well calculated”.

As with every club in every window, however, Forest were linked with plenty of players who didn’t put pen to paper at the City Ground in the end. We take a look at what happened to some of those who were said to be on the Reds’ radar but didn’t join up with Cooper’s side.

Carlos Borges

Forest were one of several teams with an eye on the talented teenager. West Ham United and Palermo were also linked with the 19-year-old.

However, Ajax won the race for his signature. They signed the attacker from Manchester City in a deal worth up to 20 million euros (£17.3m). A 20 percent sell-on clause, as well as a buy-back option for City, is said to have been included.

Dean Henderson

After impressing on loan from Manchester United last term, the Reds were keen to get the goalkeeper back. The transfer saga dragged on for much of the summer, but it ended with Forest signing Matt Turner and Odysseas Vlachodimos, while Henderson went to Crystal Palace for £20m.
