Nottingham Forest has reignited their interest in striker Michail Antonio, according to The Sun. This move, if successful, could mark a positive turning point for both clubs.

The report claims Forest is making a “sensational swoop” to re-sign Antonio, a former player who considers his time there a very happy one.

This move aligns with the reported “massive Lopetegui clear-out” at West Ham under their new manager, Julen Lopetegui. Antonio’s departure seems to be part of the club’s rebuilding plans.

While Forest leads the chase, Antonio is also attracting interest from various MLS  and Saudi League clubs.

You have to admire Antonio’s dedication and contributions to West Ham since his arrival in 2015. His versatility and impressive goalscoring record will never be forgotten

However, there is valid criticism on the way that West Ham has failed to find a suitable replacement for Antonio, leading to an over-reliance on him that ultimately hindered the team’s progress.

Lopetegui‘s willingness to sell Antonio reinforces the fact that a new striker is a definite priority for West Ham. They are actively looking to address this gap in their squad.

If Forest do sign Antonio, he will go with the best wishes of West Ham fans after what he has done for the club. He has scored some hugely important and historic goals for the Hammers down the years including their last ever at Upton Park and the first in the Premier League at the London Stadium.
