Forest will 'sign ANOTHER big name ahead of Premier League return'

  Forest will 'sign ANOTHER big name ahead of Premier League return' The newly promoted Premier League side have been the most active side in the top flight this summer with Manchester United's Jesse Lingard becoming their 11th signing of the window. But it's understood that Lingard, who signed a £200,000-a-week deal with Forest on Thursday, will be the 'first of more' as Steve Cooper's side look to bring in additional reinforcements.

Juventus have joined the race for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic following the injury to Paul Pogba, as per reports in Italy.

Lazio price the Serbian at around £50million and is a player who has also been linked with a move to Manchester United as an alternative to their drawn out chase for Frenkie de Jong.

Pogba limped out of training last week with a suspected knee injury, but the club are yet to confirm the severity on the problem.

Milinković-Savić made 37 appearances last season for Lazio, scoring  11 goals and  notching-up 11 assists for the Rome club.

  Man United want Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as de Jong alternative Manchester United are thought to be interested in Lazio's Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, as an alternative if their long planned proposal for Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong falls flat.While Barcelona's de Jong has been determined to make a move happen, it is not clear if he intends to join up with his fellow Dutchman at Old Trafford.

Although a move for the 27-year-old is being fuelled by the injury to Pogba, the club are said to believe the pair could also play together in the centre of Juventus' midfield.

Manager Massimo Allegri fears that Roma, Inter and Napoli may start the season in stronger positions and according to Corriere dello Sport, is why Milinkovic-Savic is now on their radar.

The midfielder is said to be keen on staying in Serie A and the move would mean he would share a city with older brother Vanja Milinković-Savić, who plays for Torino.

Manchester United are also monitoring the situation and the Serbian could be an option if they are to end their protracted chase of Barcelona's De Jong.

Along with Pogba, Juventus have already recruited Angel Di Maria, Gielson Bremer, Ferderico Chiesa and Andrea Cambiasso so far this summer.
