It was reported earlier this week that Forest had been in contacts with the Turkish side over a possible move for Nelsson. Steve Cooper is keen to add a central defender to his ranks heading into the new season.

In a recent report by Turkish outlet Aksam, they state that Forest have submitted an €18million (£16m) offer plus add-ons that could increase the package to €22m (£19m). The Denmark international still has three years left on his current deal after making the €7m switch from Copenhagen in 2021.

Although Galatasaray have apparently valued Nelsson at €25m (£22m), the Turkish outfit are “preparing to accept” the offer, in order to comply with the Financial Fair Play rules.
