Derby County are now said to be ahead of Nottingham Forest in the race to sign Jack Marriott.
Nottingham Forest fans are not concerned that Derby County are reportedly rivalling them for Jack Marriott.
Forest have been strongly linked with Marriott throughout the summer transfer window so far, with the Reds said to be keen on the Peterborough United striker.
Forest fans are not panicking though, as they feel Fry is simply using Derby to try and pressure them into a bid.
It’s clear we’re in control of whether we want to bid on Marriott or not. Fry trying to stir up a bid from someone, anyone... Great to see we no longer panic buy. Exciting times to be a red #nffc— DJ (@OfficiallyDJ) June 14, 2018
Maybe, just maybe, AK doesn’t give a toss where Marriott goes and has no interest in him at all... Just wish he’d sign for someone, getting very boring! #NFFC— Mark (@MarktheRoofer86) June 14, 2018
All the press are doing is linking derby county to Jack Marriott so Nottingham Forest rush in with a bid as we all know derby can not afford him.— Liam (@Nffc_no1_fan) June 14, 2018
Barry Fry’s latest comments must be his 1000th ploy to try and get a bid out of Forest. Mentioned again that Marriott prefers us and has now said our rivals are strong contenders. He’s stirring it #nffc— Forest Fanzone (@forestfanzone) June 14, 2018
I don’t think we can take anything Barry Fry is saying at face value. Last week it was this guy is better than Collymore.— Peter O'Hanraha-Hanrahan (@PeterOHanrahaH) June 14, 2018
It’s been widely reported our main striker lies elsewhere but #nffc does have an interest. That alone doesn’t lead to us paying over the odds right now
Marriott is currently one of the most in-demand players in the Football League, but is said to favour a move to Forest.
Peterborough want £6.5 million for the striker, who scored 33 goals for them last season.
Forest have proven that they have money to spend this summer, with Joao Carvalho on his way to the City Ground in a big money move from Benfica.
Derby, on the other hand, are thought to have to sell before buying this summer, with Frank Lampard’s side having to cut costs.
