Nottingham Forest’s pursuit of Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodriguez faced setbacks during the summer, with a reported €10 million (£8.7m) offer deemed insufficient. Lyon also expressed interest, but Rodriguez, 29, rejected the move due to personal reasons, as his wife was expecting.

According to Spanish outlet ABC Sevilla, Forest might have another chance in the upcoming January transfer window. Betis has been unsuccessful in securing a new contract for Rodriguez, who has declined multiple offers. This opens the door for Forest to revisit the potential signing. However, it remains uncertain whether manager Steve Cooper, who strengthened the midfield in the summer, still sees Rodriguez as a necessary addition.

Rodriguez, with 12 La Liga appearances this season, scored once but accumulated five yellow cards. In the previous season, he received eight bookings in 34 games, scoring one goal. Notably, he was part of Argentina’s 2022 World Cup-winning squad, featuring in one match during the group stage against Mexico and being on the bench for the remaining fixtures.

As Forest awaits a possible opportunity in the January transfer window, Rodriguez’s future with Betis remains uncertain, given his reluctance to commit to a new contract.
