However, there is also need for goalkeeper cover, with Dean Henderson sustaining a thigh injury in Forest’s 2-0 home win over Leicester City. It is unclear when he will return.
Costa Rica goalie Navas, 36, has been at PSG since 2019, when he joined from Real Madrid.
He has 110 caps for his country, representing the Central American nation at the 2014, 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
Atletico Madrid centre-back Felipe is a target for Wolves, and now Nottingham Forest as well
Former Porto centre-back Felipe joined Atletico Madrid in 2019, making 85 appearances for the LaLiga side.
However, there were rumours of his move away from Madrid, with Wolverhampton Wanderers keen to explore the possibility of nabbing the Brazilian.
Nottingham Forest have now opened their own talks with the Spanish club, in a bid to add Felipe to their long list of new recruits since returning to the Premier League for the first time in over two decades.

Steve Cooper’s side have already added midfielder Danilo, playmaker Gustavo Scarpa and forward Chris Wood to their squad in the winter transfer window, in addition to the 23 players they signed following promotion last summer. It is still not enough – they also seek a new winger.
Forest’s next match is the League Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester United, when they will try to overcome a 3-0 deficit, before league games against Leeds United, Fulham and Manchester City.
