Nottingham Forest submit new bid for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Sangaré worth €35m

According to Rik Elfrink, Nottingham Forest have submitted a new bid for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Sangaré. The Reds have upped their offer to €35m as they look to bring in the Ivorian international before the end of the transfer window. Sangaré featured in PSV’s 5-1 win over Rangers on Wednesday night as the Dutch giants progressed to the group stage of the Champions League. This may well have been the 25-year-old’s final game for PSV.

Earlier this month, Nottingham Forest bid €25m for Ibrahim Sangaré but the bid was swiftly rejected. At the time, PSV set their asking price to €37.5m and Steve Cooper’s side went ahead and almost matched that on Wednesday night. Other clubs including Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have eyes on Sangaré, but both sides are yet to make contact with PSV. Forest are currently winning the race and there is growing optimising that the midfielder could be their player by the end of this week. 

Sangaré has been a crucial player for PSV ever since he signed from Toulouse in 2020. The player has four years remaining on his current contract, hence the high asking price. Last season Ibrahim Sangaré featured 45 times in all competitions as PSV finished second in the Eredivisie and lifted the KNVB Cup. The 31-time Ivory Coast international scored eight goals and provided three assists. He could be exactly what Nottingham Forest need to push on in the Premier League this season.
