Nottingham Forest fans will be hoping for better success last year after a mid-table finish was achieved.
There were plenty of signs that Forest could be competing higher up the league table, such as the FA Cup win over Arsenal and the emergence of their young academy products but their form was way too patchy and inconsistent to mount a serious challenge for a play-off spot.
With Aitor Karanka now at the helm, Forest fans will be hoping that success is just around the corner.
The Spaniard is clearly not happy with his squad and he has already been busy in January, bringing in new players and flogging fringe players.
Karanka will have an idea of how he wants his first-team squad to look next year and it is time to bring in his players to get his ideal side.
Here is how Nottingham Forest could line up next season, including three potential new signings who would slot straight into the starting XI.
