Richie Laryea joined Nottingham Forest from Toronto FC last week, and he’s been compared to Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.

Greg Vanney was the MLS team’s manager from 2014 to 2020, and some of his earlier comments should please Forest fans.

Laryea has joined the Reds permanently for the second time this summer. As Steve Cooper tries to reorganise his defence, he follows Steve Cook inside the club.

The 27-year-old appears to be a promising signing. Toronto gave him the highest-paid full-back position in the MLS, but Laryea was bent on playing in Europe.

Given the similarity to Davies, it appears that Vanney thinks Laryea is a fine player for Forest.

After being selected in the first round of the 2016 MLS SuperDraft, the player began his senior career with Orlando City. In 2019, he returned to his hometown of Toronto. Where he is thought to have turned down a new contract that would have made him the league’s highest-paid full-back to join Forest this month.

How will Laryea signing for Nottingham Forest Impact their Season?

Laryea joins a Forest side that had a poor start to the season. But it has since risen to the top flight under new manager Steve Cooper, who was hired in September.

While the club is six points out of the Championship playoffs just over midseason. As they look to return to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years.

Laryea will now attempt to swiftly adapt to English football. Forest is short at left-back, so he could be pressed into service in the coming weeks.

Even though he is an unknown quantity, his admirers appear to be pleased with the transaction. While Fans in Toronto adored him, Forest supporters appear eager to allow him to shine.

Forest’s first-choice full-backs this season have been Djed Spence and Max Lowe. Cooper, on the other hand, has moved rapidly to make a permanent addition.

Laryea is a fast player who enjoys taking on opponents. If he can prove himself defensively, the club could be set for the next few years at right-back.

While The parallels to Davies are fascinating to read. Laryea will now try to follow in the footsteps of his compatriot, who has a slew of trophies to his name.
