Worrall is a very talented and promising young defender who has the potential to be a success in the Premier League, although £20m for him is a bit too much.

Forest, though, should try their best to keep hold onto the 21-year-old, who has been on the books of the Reds since 2011.

The Reds are unlikely to challenge for the Championship playoffs this season, but under manager Aitor Karanka, they will be aiming for the top six during the 2018-19 campaign.
