Whether or not Nottingham Forest stays in the Premier League, the team’s roster will probably be entirely different the next year.


Nuno Espirito Santo will like to work with a far smaller group of players than what he has currently if the club is able to survive.


In the event that relegation is confirmed, several of the team’s best players will probably leave, and younger players may start playing senior football.


Murillo, the center defender, is one player who could depart regardless of what happens to Forest.


For a meager £10.4 million, the Brazilian signed with the Reds last summer, but to be honest, most fans didn’t know much about him.


But since making his debut against Brentford in October, he has been a constant in the squad and has improved with each match.


At the end of the season, Murillo has drawn attention from four Premier League teams; Forest may have to sell.


Before Forest took a chance on him, Manchester City was interested in Murillo, and the Reds might now be worth a huge sum of money.



Data illustrates Nottingham Forest’s potential value of Murillo at this time.

Forest star Murillo is included in a new document that was published today by the CIES Football Observatory Weekly Post.


The top 100 players in the world who are still under 23 and whose transfer value has grown the highest over the past six months are displayed.


The top of the list is Barcelona’s Lamine Yamal, followed by Benfica’s Joao Neves and Girona’s defender Savio Moreira in second and third place, respectively.


According to some reports, Murillo’s worth has climbed by about £20 million over the past six months, making him a player worth £30 million.


Despite his relative youth, Murillo has already made 30 appearances for Forest in the 2023–2024 season.


This date does make for compelling reading, and Forest is perfectly justified in demanding a premium price for Murillo should they choose to pursue it.


Defensor departure could provide a difficulty for Forest.

Going Murillo in the summer could be inevitable. He’s one guy who will bring in a sizable amount, especially with FFP still hanging around.


Selling him, though, won’t be a huge issue provided the funds are allocated wisely and the team takes the necessary steps to find a replacement.


Murillo was chosen by Forest as a relative unknown from South America, a region where the team has had success with transfers.


Another Brazilian player who was signed, Danilo, has also had a significant impact at the City Ground.


Any club that needs to sell one of its best players is always saddened, but for a Premier League team like Forest, it is an inevitable circumstance.


The difficulty lies in finding suitable replacements, and maybe Forest already has a list of candidates prepared to fill Murillo’s shoes.
