Advanced talks are underway to finalise a deal with the central midfielder before the transfer window closes tomorrow.
The 27-year-old from Guinea-Bissau made a move to the French Ligue 1 in July 2018 after agreeing a five year deal with Monaco.
Pele, who’s full name is Judilson Mamadu Tuncará Gomes, has made only eight appearances so far this season for Leonardo Jardim’s side.
Having failed to make much of a difference for the French team, there are mixed reactions from Forest fans on Twitter.
One user, Alex Goncalves, said: “I’m genuinely a big fan. He’s a very solid central midfielder, breaks up attacks well and operates as a destroyer in midfield.
“The issue is that he is injury-prone.”
Another fan, Adrien Picard, wrote: “He was really bad at Monaco but maybe he will be better fit for Championship football.”
