Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce that the club have agreed to sign Portuguese duo João Carvalho and Diogo Gonçalves from Benfica.

Attacking midfielder Carvalho (pictured left), 21, has agreed to join The Reds for a club-record fee and will put pen to paper on a five-year deal from 1st July.

Gonçalves, also 21, is a winger and will join Aitor Karanka's side on a season-long loan deal from 1st July with the option to make it a permanent transfer at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Both players came through the ranks at Benfica and have tasted European football, featuring in the Champions League last season, and have also been prominent figures for their national side throughout the youth age groups, becoming key players for Portugal Under 21s.
