Premier League outfit Nottingham Forest have, on Thursday, closed an agreement to add yet another fresh face to their squad in the new year.

Forest, of course, took their place front and centre in the headlines on the transfer market this past summer.

This came upon the powers that be at the City Ground adding to the options at the disposal of boss Steve Cooper in nothing short of remarkable fashion.

After sealing a long-awaited return to the top-flight of English football by way of the Championship playoffs, the Garibaldi brought in a whopping 22 new players over the course of the window.

And though the club’s campaign has since proven, for the most part, an underwhelming affair, Forest are evidently not yet ready to call time on their reinforcement project.

This comes as yet another player prepares to take his talents to England’s east Midlands.

As per a report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the board at the City Ground have reached a full agreement with the representatives of Palmeiras star Gustavo Scarpa.

Scarpa, a 28-year-old attacking midfielder, is therefore ready to put pen to paper on a contract with Forest, tying him to the club through the summer of 2026.

His arrival in England will be made official upon the opening of the January transfer window, when Scarpa’s terms with current employers Palmeiras come to an official end.
