The Daily Mail has claimed that Manchester City youngster Arijanet Muric is set for a Championship loan move this summer, with Nottingham Forest reportedly keen on the goalkeeper.
Nottingham Forest are keen on a loan move for Manchester City’s young shot-stopper Arijanet Muric, a report from the Daily Mail said on Tuesday night.
A “number of clubs” are considering a move for the 20-year-old ‘keeper this summer, but Nottingham Forest are actively keeping a close eye on Muric ahead of a possible move. Manager Martin O’Neill and goalkeeper coach Seamus McDonough were in attendance at a game between Kosovo and Belarus, in which he played his part in a 3-2 win.
With first-team chances at Manchester City highly unlikely next season, Muric will head out to gather some much-needed first-team minutes next season. Claudio Bravo’s return from injury makes him the club’s second choice goalkeeper behind Brazilian star Ederson, who has hardly been dislodged since his arrival.
Muric played five times for Manchester City last season, with all of his appearances coming in the EFL Cup, keeping four clean sheets in their run to the final, where they defeated Chelsea on penalties.
The youngster is highly regarded at the Etihad Stadium and has continued to grow in the club’s youth sides since joining from Swiss side Grasshopper in 2015. He spent a short time on loan at NAC Breda last season, playing in just one game for the club before returning to England after an injury to Claudio Bravo early on during his stint with the Dutch side.
