2 realistic signings Nottingham Forest should try make before Friday’s 5pm deadline



The domestic transfer window closes tomorrow afternoon, with plenty of EFL sides looking to get last-minute deals over the line before the 5pm deadline.

Nottingham Forest have been very busy in the transfer window this summer, bringing in 13 players to add to an inflated squad which now consists of around 30 first-team players.

Chris Hughton, though, may be keen to add another player to his squad before the window slams shut, particularly out wide.

Forest and Derby have both won a European Cup?

The 61-year-old was appointed as the club’s new manager last week following the sacking of Sabri Lamouchi, and he will have learnt a lot about his new squad in his first week in charge.

Hughton has previously admitted that he may look to bring in another player as he looks to get the balance of his squad right, with fans expecting to see a new player arrive at the City Ground before tomorrow.

Here, we take a look at two realistic signings Forest should try to make before tomorrow’s 5pm deadline…

Harry Wilson

Wilson has this week been linked with a move to the City Ground.

The Liverpool winger is out of favour under Jurgen Klopp, and spent last season on loan in the Premier League with AFC Bournemouth, scoring seven goals for the Cherries.

Wilson has stood out in the Championship before, scoring 15 goals in 40 Championship appearances for Derby County as they reached the play-off final in 2017/18.

Forest need more depth out wide, and Wilson would provide quality competition for Joe Lolley, Sammy Ameobi and Alex Mighten.

Swansea have had a loan offer rejected by Liverpool for the wide-man, so Forest may need to cough up a substantial loan fee for the Welshman. It would be completely worth it, though.

Kamil Grosicki

If Wilson proves to be too expensive and Forest can’t get a deal over the line, then they should switch their attention to Grosicki.

Grosicki has found it difficult to cement a place in Slaven Bilic’s side at West Brom since arriving from Hull City in January.

The Poland international has made only four league starts for the Baggies, and he is yet to make a single appearance in the Premier League this term.

Grosicki has said that he will continue to fight for a place under Bilic, but first-team assurances at Forest could prove to be key for the winger, who is now 32-years-old.
