Nottingham Forest set to confirm their TWENTY signing after agreeing deal for Josh Bowler
Nottingham Forest are set to confirm their TWENTY signing of the summer as Steve Cooper’s side agree a £2million fee with Blackpool for talented winger Josh Bowler
- Josh Bowler becomes Steve Cooper’s 20th signing from a busy summer window
- Nottingham Forest have reached a £2m deal with Blackpool for the 23-year-old winger
- Bowler impressed last season and was a standout talent in the championship
- He is expected to be loaned to Forest’s sister club Olympiacos
Josh Bowler will become Nottingham Forest’s 20th summer signing after the club struck a deal with Blackpool to sign the winger for around £2million.
The 23-year-old is loaned to Forest’s sister club Olympiacos.
The former Everton and QPR youngster will be the 20th addition Steve Cooper has made this summer after the club added Willy Boly earlier today.
Josh Bowler becomes Nottingham Forest’s 20th summer signing, after they agreed a £2m deal with Blackpool to sign the winger
Last year he impressed for Blackpool after signing in the summer, scoring eight goals and adding three assists.
Bowler has continued his fine form throughout this campaign, scoring twice for Michael Appleton’s side in seven games so far.
The £2m addition brings Forest’s summer spend to over £145m as Cooper’s side continue to draw attention with their eye-watering summer transfers.
Bowler was signed by Everton in 2017 as a hot prospect after making his debut for QPR at the end of the previous season.
The move for Bowler follows Steve Cooper’s side and completes the signing of defender Willy Boly
Bowler was a standout talent in the championship last season, scoring eight goals
Cooper has been extremely busy this summer after leading Forest back to the top
The winger made 41 appearances for the club’s development team over four seasons before spending the 2019/2020 season on loan at Hull City.
He made 31 appearances for the Tigers but struggled to secure a spot, taking just 14 of these starts.
Arriving at Bloomfield Road last summer following his departure from Goodison Park, he was one of the brightest talents in the Championship in 2021-22.
Both Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth attempted to sign the winger in January but failed to match the Seasider’s price tag.
Forest has had a mixed start to the season and is currently in 15th place, but had some tough games against Man City, Tottenham and West Ham.
Then Forest welcomes Bournemouth in one of the kick-offs on Saturday at 3pm.
