Agent: Spezia striker Nzola rejected Forest; wanted Genoa

The agent of Spezia striker M'Bala Nzola admits he rejected an offer from Nottingham Forest.

Nzola is now in talks to join Istanbul Basaksehir.

“The player wanted to stay in Serie A and Genoa was his first choice," the striker's agent Doug Pingisi told Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio.

“We had contacts with English and Turkish clubs, but M'Bala wanted Genoa only. However, the two clubs failed to reach an agreement, so the deal collapsed.

“We are in talks with İstanbul Başakşehir.

"We are waiting for Spezia's green light to complete the transfer. Turkey is the player's second favourite option after Serie A. For this reason, we didn't continue talks with VitoriaGuimaraes and we rejected a move to Nottingham Forest because they play in England's second division."
