It’s now the 16th signing that Nottingham Forest have made this summer. The Premier League newcomers are breaking the bank with hopes to avoid relegation in their inaugural season. Maupay will provide a pure goalscorer atop the Forest attack that will bring a type of tenacity, dynamism, and passion you would want at a club fighting for survival. He will join Manchester United reject Jesse Lingard and 2021-22 double-digit goalscorer Emmanuel Dennis in an attack that is quite strong for a new club.
In 2021-22, Maupay bagged eight goals and two assists across 32 matches in the Premier League with Brighton. The 25-year-old surely won’t be in the lineup for Sunday’s fixture against West Ham, but there may be a chance at his debut on August 20th when Nottingham Forest travels to Everton.
