Algeria international Hilal Soudani is close to a £2.5m move to Championship side Nottingham Forest, according to Croatian media outlet 24 Sata.
The Algerian forward, who can play as a left winger or as a striker, is set to leave Dinamo Zagreb this summer after a spell full of trophies at the Croatian club.
Soudani is set to reject offers from both Saudi Arabia and China in favour of fulfilling his dream to play football in England, showing his willingness to take on a fresh challenge.
Having won the League and Cup double this campaign, Soudani would bring a winning mentality to Aitor Karanka’s team. Forest also tried and failed to sign him in the January transfer window.
If he got his wish, Soudani would link up with fellow Algerian international Adlene Guedioura at Nottingham Forest. Soudani is currently in Algeria but Dinamo Zagreb are beginning their pre-season on Monday so it remains to be seen if he links up with their squad.
Soudani has won domestic trophies in Algeria, Portugal and Croatia and is certainly more than ready for a new challenge elsewhere. For the price being paid in the current market today, Forest are getting an absolute bargain of a footballer.
