Nottingham Forest has entered into negotiations with French powerhouse Monaco, aiming to secure the services of left-back Ismail Jakobs.
Monaco is open to the idea of parting ways with Jakobs, provided the deal involves an appropriate fee, and the talks are expected to progress in the upcoming weeks.
Initially, Forest had their sights set on Chelsea’s Ian Maatsen, but they have shifted their focus to Jakobs as they believe Maatsen’s price tag is too high.
Hailing from Germany but representing Senegal internationally, Jakobs has been a key figure in Monaco’s first team for the past two years. He has showcased his talent in 60 matches for the club, further adding to his impressive football resume.
Transfermarkt.com values Jakobs at 6 million euros, indicating his worth in the current market. He has also earned 8 caps for Senegal, highlighting his prowess on the international stage.
