According to Tuttomercatoweb, Serie A veteran Remo Freuler of Atalanta will depart for England on Thursday in the afternoon to finalize a £10 million transfer to Nottingham Forest of the Premier League.
As the transfer window nears its conclusion, Nottingham Forest are still looking to bolster at least two positions: central midfield and left wing-back.
Therefore, Freuler’s entrance feels like a textbook instance of hitting two birds with one stone.
Under Steve Cooper, the adaptable and extremely cerebral Freuler could play both as a deep-lying playmaker and a left-side forward, all while saving money for additional improvements during a summer of transition at the City Ground.
Following the failure of a few earlier proposals, TMW says that Nottingham Forest and Atalanta have reached an agreement on a £10 million transaction, plus bonuses.
Freuler will agree to a three-year contract. In the East Midlands, one of Gian Piero Gasperini’s most dependable colleagues will earn £30,000 per week.
According to the article, Freuler will be in England on Thursday, most likely for medical examinations.
The 30-year-old moved from Luzern to Atalanta in 2016. He was a significant contributor to La Dea’s extraordinary rise from mid-table underachievers to Champions League regulars.
He has around 50 national team appearances under his belt, and he represented Switzerland in the 2017 European Championships.
