Championship outfit Nottingham Forest have made an approach for Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, according to a report.
The Nottingham Post claims that Mark Warburton’s side have made an enquiry for the experienced 29-year-old as they look to add a new shot-stopper to their ranks.
It is understood that Forest may be willing to take Bogdan either on loan or as a permanent deal.
Bodgan, who has 20 international caps for Hungary and has a great understanding of English football, has only made two senior appearances for Liverpool ever since he arrived from Bolton in 2015.
He was sent out on loan to the Championship last season when he played 17 times for the eventually relegated Wigan, but suffered a major injury setback in November which saw him ruled out for the rest of the season.
It is now understood that the Hungarian ‘keeper has recovered from his knee injury and is firmly on Warburton’s radar as he looks to elevate Forest’s stature in the English second tier.
Football Insider Verdict
Nottingham Forest definitely need a new goalkeeper this summer as they were left short in that area last season following a serious injury to Stephen Henderson and questions raised about the form of their other options. Bogdan knows the Championship well and would be a top addition to Warburton’s side. As for Liverpool, it never really made much sense in signing Bodgan in the first place when they perhaps have better goalkeepers waiting for a first-team call-up in the development team. It seems like it would be a good deal for all parties concerned, especially the Hungarian international, who needs to get some first-team football after a long-term injury.
