Championship outfit Nottingham Forest are currently considering a swoop for Argentine midfielder Tino Costa, according to reports from Tutto Mercato.

Nottingham Forest have enjoyed a decent summer so far in the transfer front after recruiting highly rated manager Philippe Montanier as well as promising young duo Apostolos Vellios and Thomas Lam.

Now Forest look set to ramp up their level of activity in the transfer market and according to reports emerging out of Italy, the Championship outfit are currently said to be planning a swoop for former Valencia star Tino Costa.

Costa is an experienced midfielder who has played for the likes of Montpellier, Valencia, Spartak Moscow and Fiorentina among others throughout his career so far.

The 31-year-old did not enjoy the best spells at Spartak though and following a brief loan stay at Fiorentina back in January, he was released upon the conclusion of last season.

A return back to Argentina with San Lorenzo had been seen as the most likely course of action for Costa but now according to reports from Tutto Mercato, Nottingham Forest have emerged as a strong contender to sign the 31-year-old.

Costa was believed to be on the verge of agreeing a deal with San Lorenzo but Forest are now planning to change the midfielder’s mind by placing a more ‘financially compelling’ offer on the table.
