Former USMNT star Eric Wynalda has told The Action Networkof Turner’s imminent move: "I think Nottingham Forest would be a good move for Matt Turner, especially if David Raya does end up at Arsenal. Forest are a Premier League club with ambitious plans, and they would be able to offer Turner regular playing time. He would also be joining a team with a strong American contingent, including his USMNT team-mate Ethan Horvath. Turner is a talented goalkeeper who has shown his quality at both the club and international level. He is a good shot-stopper with good reflexes and distribution skills. He is also a vocal leader who would be a good fit for Forest's young and developing team. If Turner does move to Forest, he will be looking to establish himself as the club's number one goalkeeper. He will have competition from Horvath, but I think he has the potential to be the first-choice keeper. Forest are a team on the rise, and Turner could be a key part of their success in the years to come."
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
While Forest are closing in on Turner, they also remain keen on Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson. He spent time on loan with the Reds last season and would be expected to be first choice in Steve Cooper’s plans once fully recovered from injury – meaning that Turner may be restricted to a back-up role once again.
