Former Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi is reportedly a leading contender to take charge at Wolves, which has caused a stir among Reds fans.
Nuno Espirito Santo is set to leave the Premier League club at the end of the season and it seems a familiar face – at least to those at The City Ground – could take his place at Molineux.
According to Football Insider, Lamouchi is a leading contender to replace the Portuguese coach.
It is understood that the Frenchman was lined up by Wolves last summer when there were concerns about Nuno’s future, with his links to agent Jorge Mendes likely to be key to any potential move.
Lamouchi was sacked by Forest back in October after a poor run of form saw the Reds miss out on the play-offs in 2019/20 and then make a terrible start to the following season.
He has since taken charge at Qatari side Al-Duhail, meaning Wolves will surely have to pay compensation to prize him away this summer.
Though his tenure at the City Ground ended sourly, Lamouchi did help Forest achieve their highest finish in nearly a decade and it seems some supporters remain fond of him, though many aren’t
What club do these 21 former Nottingham Forest players ply their trade at now?
The links to Wolves have caused a stir among Reds fans, with many taking to Twitter to voice their thoughts…
