New England Revolution rejected Nottingham Forest bid for Djordje Petrovic

The New England Revolution has rejected two transfer offers for star goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic, from Nottingham Forest and FC Nantes, sources with knowledge of the bids told The Athletic.

The offers are in the region of $8 million plus add-ons. That’s around what former Revs standout goalkeeper Matt Turner was transferred to Arsenal for.

New England prefer to wait until the winter to agree to a deal for Petrovic, with the summer transfer window in MLS closing in just days on Wednesday. Petrovic is among the best goalkeepers in the league, a crucial piece to New England’s postseason outlook. The Revs are second in the Eastern Conference with 43 points after 23 matches and are more focused on competing for trophies rather than turning a transfer profit.

Nottingham Forest is working on a deal to sign goalkeeper Dean Henderson and has contacted Arsenal about a potential move for Turner as well, as first reported by The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

Nottingham finished 16th in the Premier League last year, staving off relegation by four points. Nantes finished 16th in Ligue 1 last year, avoiding relegation by one point.

Petrovic, 23, has made 47 appearances in New England after signing in 2022 and quickly established himself after Turner departed for Arsenal. He was voted second in MLS Goalkeeper of the Year last season, despite playing only 21 of 34 matches after joining midseason. He was named a 2023 MLS All-Star.

Petrovic has two caps with the Serbia national team. Before New England, he broke through at Serbian side FK Cukaricki.

If the Revs acquiesce to an offer now, or plan to before the European transfer windows close in a month, they have until Wednesday to sign a replacement on the transfer market. MLS clubs can also sign free agents after the window closes until September 13.
