Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest Prediction, Betting Tips, Odds & Preview

According to UOL Esporte, Chelsea is thinking about making a bid for Murillo, the defender for Nottingham Forest. The Brazilian is worth £50 million, according to Tricky Trees. The Blues have identified the Forest center-back as a possible target because they need another defender. Thiago Silva’s departure has left Enzo Maresca’s team searching for a replacement central defender.

Murillo meets Chelsea’s requirements after an outstanding first campaign at Forest, but the club is also seeking to add a defender who can contend for a starting position right away. He is one of Forest’s best players. In August, the 21-year-old arrived in the Premier League from Brazilian team Corinthians for a reported £15 million.

According to reports, Chelsea has told Forest that they will not match their valuation and that they may make a proposal that includes two players in order to cover the transfer money. In addition, Atletico Madrid has shown a great desire to sign Murillo and has already had discussions with the defender’s agents. However, Forest’s £50 million asking price has apparently turned off the Spanish team.

Speaking last week on Os Donos da Bola, a Brazilian program, Murillo hinted that he might be willing to leave Forest after just one season. A couple of offers have come in for me. Murillo stated, “Some are officials, some are speaking out.” “I’ll talk to my agent about it.” The clubs were from Germany, Italy, and England. I’ll try my hardest if I stay in Nottingham. I hope they respect my decision if I leave. I’m cool and making the finest analysis possible.
