The passion for La Liga talent transcends borders and on this occasion Nottingham Forest have turned their attention to Real Betis’ Luiz Felipe. The Premier League club’s interest in the Brazilian defender has been a recurring theme in recent speculation and although their goal is to secure the transfer, negotiations have not proved to be an easy road. Betis are ready to fight to keep their star.
Nottingham Forest have long shown an interest in Luiz Felipe, but the road to his acquisition has not been without obstacles. The English club’s initial offer was immediately rejected by Real Betis. It seems that the amount offered of almost 15 million euros did not live up to the expectations of the Spanish team, who set a price tag of around 20 million.

For Betis, Luiz Felipe is an essential part of their plan. The player joined the club last summer after receiving his dismissal letter from Lazio and has quickly established himself as a mainstay in the Betis defence. While the club aren’t yet ruling out the possibility of his exit, they are determined to secure a fair offer for one of their most prized assets.
Nottingham Forest are not alone in the race for Luiz Felipe. Recent information suggests a bid from Saudi Arabia has come into play, however no details have been given as to the club involved or the exact sum on offer. This situation could turn the tide of negotiations and Nottingham Forest need to act quickly to secure the transfer before other opportunities arise.
The battle for Luiz Felipe continues with several clubs trying to secure the Brazilian defender’s services. Uncertainty reigns as Nottingham Forest attempt to overcome obstacles and secure a satisfactory deal with Real Betis. Fans will expect anything new in this developing story that could take unexpected turns before the transfer market closes.
