Forest are short in the position following the exits of Cafu, Jack Colback, Braian Ojeda, Gustavo Scarpa and Jesse Lingard this summer.

Jonjo Shelvey is also thought to be close to the exit with Leeds interested in the former Liverpool midfielder.

Forest had looked to sign AS Monaco midfielder Youssouf Fofana and had offered the Ligue 1 side £30million for his signature.

However, the French international was not keen on a move to the City Ground.

And now the MailOnline have claimed that Forest are keen on Santos and could get him on loan.

The reports suggest that the Brazilian midfielder could be used plus cash in a move that would see Chelsea sign Brennan Johnson.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is keen to add more firepower to his squad after a stuttering start to the season.

Santos is yet to make his debut for Chelsea following his £18m move from Vasco da Gama.


Johnson will not come cheaply as he is a fan favourite at the City Ground and only signed a long-term contract with the club last summer.

It is claimed that Forest value the Welsh international at £50m, who also has interest from Tottenham and West Ham.

However, Johnson will make it clear that he will prioritise playing time and that will be “paramount” to his decision.

Last season, he played a key role in Forest’s survival in the Premier League as he netted eight goals and bagged three assists in 38 appearances.
