Nottingham Forest have made an official bid for United States international right-back Reggie Cannon, 90min understands, with the defender currently plying his trade in Portugal with Boavista.
The 23-year-old is a product of the famed FC Dallas academy, also responsible for the development of Juventus star Weston McKennie, Roma’s Bryan Reynolds and Chris Richards of Bayern Munich among others.
Cannon made 73 appearances for the Texas side between 2017 and 2020. He then moved to Portugal with Boavista in 2020 for a reported $3.5m fee and made 32 appearances for the club last season – their first back in the top flight.
The defender was also part of Gregg Berhalter’s USMNT squads that won Nations League and Gold Cup titles at international level this summer. Thus far, Cannon has earned 22 senior caps for the Stars and Stripes, scoring once.
Speculation has been rife regarding a possible move to England for Cannon this summer. A source close to the situation has confirmed to 90min that Nottingham Forest have lodged a bid of an undisclosed figure for the player, while another unnamed Championship club remain in touch and are weighing up an offer of their own for Cannon.
Cannon remains in training with Boavista, who have taken three points from their opening two Liga NOS games.
