Back on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2016, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough put their heads together and came up with a swap deal involving Adama Traore and Albert Adomah.
The then Boro boss Aitor Karanka admitted to the Gazzette Live that Adomah swapping the Riverside for Villa Park was a ‘good move’. But this does not mean the Spaniard doesn’t rate the Ghanaian winger – far from it.
Adomah started 36 games as Karanka’s Middlesbrough won promotion to the Premier League two years ago, scoring six goals and assisting another five along the way.
An Aston Villa side under major pressure from Financial Fair Play will reportedly have to raise funds through selling a number of key players after losing the play-off final to Fulham on Saturday, according to The Telegraph.
And Forest are hoping that Adomah will be one of those on the market. The 30-year-old enjoyed the best season of his career in 2017/18, scoring an unexpected 14 goals in 37 Championship starts, all while playing on the wing.
Needless to say, he’d be a fine addition for a Forest side who found goals very difficult to come by last season.
Who said no ..that lad has been unplayable most of the season— copo (@JamesCopson2) May 29, 2018
He's 30 so I'd only pay £2-£3m for the lad, think others would be willing to offer more. Great player, though.— NFFC (@NottinghamRed99) May 28, 2018
Or Adomah maybe?— NFFCGlory (@NffcGlory) May 26, 2018
