According to Voetbal International, PSV Eindhoven have rejected a new proposal from Nottingham Forest for Ibrahim Sangaré. Having made a move for the Ivorian midfielder last month, the Premier League club have returned for another attempt. Unfortunately for Steve Cooper’s side, their new proposal of a season-long loan with the obligation to buy the 25-year-old for €25m has been rejected.
PSV have set their asking price to €37.5m for Sangaré. The Dutch giants are not looking to cooperate with a transfer for less than that amount. Other clubs including Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have eyes on Sangaré, but both sides are yet to make contact with PSV.
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 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.
PSV’s new head coach, Peter Bosz will be keen to keep the defensive midfielder at the club. However, if an offer comes in from a top club, it’s highly likely that he’ll leave. Ibrahim Sangaré would be a superb addition to any Premier League side, especially Nottingham Forest who are looking to build on last season’s 16th place finish.
