Three clubs are now keen on signing Gustavo Scarpa on a permanent transfer from Nottingham Forest. The 29-year-old is currently on loan for the 2023/24 campaign at Olympiacos.
According to reports ,the three clubs who are keen to sign him permanently all come from Brazil. Flamengo, Fluminense and the club Forest signed him from, Palmeiras, are all keen.
Scarpa made a rare start for Olympiacos last week. They secured a 4-0 win during the game against Kifisia and the Brazilian forward gave a good account of himself.
The Reds took the player on a free transfer from Palmeiras in January 2023. He made 10 appearances for Forest before it was decided that he would go to Olympiacos on loan this season.
Forest forward Scarpa wanted by three clubs
The player has a contract at Forest until 2026. As a result, it’s unlikely that the player will be allowed to leave on the cheap, although it seems as though Scarpa has played his last game for the club.

In the short-term, the player will hope to play lots of football in Greece this season. Either in January or at the end of the campaign, there will be a decision to make.
Scarpa showed some glimpses at Forest of what he is capable of. Ultimately, Steve Cooper didn’t see him as the man to trust in a relegation scrap and it’s fair to say that the team now have better players.
The future looks to be away from England for Scarpa
This one is a bit of a shame. Scarpa spoke about a move to Europe being his dream when he arrived at Forest but things look to be over as far as the Premier League is concerned for the player.
The player has some really good moments at certain periods of games under Cooper. Back in January, Ian Wright called him ‘brilliant’ for his performance in a 2-0 win over Leicester.
Scarpa is in the prime of his career right now. As a result, he can’t dwell on the Forest setback too much and he will now have to focus on where his future lies when he does leave permanently.
