Fresh reports on Wednesday revealed that Nottingham Forest have placed a combined £25m price tag for Matty Cash and Joe Worrall.
The Reds are promotion hopefuls this season as we currently sit fifth in the standings, 10 points behind West Bromwich Albion in second and five points ahead of Bristol City outside the Play-off places before the football was suspended.
Worrall’s asking price had been similar but because of revenue restrictions, missing out on promotion could cost us dearly. Now, the East London side have given us something to think about.
Will Matty Cash and Joe Worrall leave the club in the summer?
Both Cash, 22, and Worrall, 23, are having stunning campaigns for us and both are first-team regulars under the watchful eye of Sabri Lamouchi, with over 33 league starts each.
As I’ve previously said, there is no guarantee that we will lose our key duo, with the possibility of the Hammers being relegated as they sit 16th in the Premier League table.
Even still, if we are promoted, this will provide us with that additional security that we can keep hold of some of our key players.
Let’s hope we don’t see another Jermaine Jenas slip through our fingers.
