Nottingham Forest Signs Renan Lodi from Atletico Madrid
Lodi joined Atletico in 2019 and has played 118 games for the Spanish La Liga side winning La Liga in 2021, and has played 27 times in the Champions League. He has won 15 caps for his country Brazil since making his debut in 2019.
Nottingham Forest who lost their last Premier League game 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur is currently in the 14th place position. Before the start of the game, their head coach said: “We want to get to a point when the window closes that we have good cover for every position but also a challenge for every position as well.
He also said: “We want to give ourselves the best opportunity to be able to compete. That is all we are trying to do.” “I would rather get questions about how many players we have signed than not signing enough, because it shows we have the right ambition.”
“We are still going through the process, when the window shuts hopefully we have enough players in our squad to cover each position, so we have a competitive environment on the training pitch.”
