NOTTINGHAM FOREST are interested in Real Betis defensive midfielder William Carvalho, according to reports.
The 30-year-old has played for the Spanish club for four seasons but with his contract expiring next summer they are ready to cash in and he wants to leave.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims newly promoted Premier League boys Forest have a "strong interest" in him and he is a "priority target".
Meanwhile reports in Spain suggest a deal could be done for just £5million with Fenerbahce and Lyon keen too.
They also say that Carvalho has not travelled with the Betis squad to their pre-season training camp in England as he weighs up his transfer options.
The Portuguese international has appeared 135 times for Betis, scoring six goals and registering ten assists.
