Sources: Nottingham Forest and Norwich City race to sign Enzo Ebosse
Nottingham Forest, Norwich City and Huddersfield Town are plotting moves to sign Cameroon defender Enzo Ebosse, Football Insider understands.
The left-back, 23, impressed for Angers in Ligue 1 last season and is set to join a new club ahead of the new campaign.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Forest, Norwich and Huddersfield are in the market for a new left-back and Ebosse figures highly on their wanted lists.
Forest won promotion back to the Premier League via the play-offs with a 1-0 win over Huddersfield last week (29 May) and Jack Colback, a midfielder by trade, started at left wing-back.
Max Lowe was also utilised in that role but has returned to Sheffield United after spending the 2021-22 season on loan.
Norwich also relied on a loan player at left-back in Man United’s Brandon Williams as they finished bottom of the Premier League.

Harry Tofollo was Huddersfield’s first-choice left-back and the club confirmed on Wednesday (1 June) that they had triggered a 12-month extension in his contract after a fine season.
Ebosse, who is under contract until the summer of 2023, could provide competition at all three clubs after an impressive season with Angers as they finished 14th Ligue 1 in the 2021-22 campaign.
He is able to operate at left centre-back in a back three as well as at left-back and would offer versatility to both Huddersfield and Forest who line up with a back three.
