Mark Warburton has a significant task on his hands at the City Ground if his Nottingham Forest survive the drop after the weekend’s action, including numerous changes regarding the first-team.
Since the ex-Brentford boss came in, he has struggled to divert Forest away from the relegation zone and now the fear of League One football could become reality if they don’t get the win in their final match of the season.
Despite all that’s going on at the club, there is one position I feel as been distinctly weak throughout the campaign is at the very back, in goal.
Undoubtedly, they have been fairly unlucky in that department following the sale of Dorus de Vries last summer and now currently injured Stephen Henderson is sitting on the sidelines, Warburton’s predecessor Philippe Montanier did nothing to address that problem and now it’s up to the new manager to find a solution.
Nottingham Forest should bring in £680,000-rated goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, who is contracted to Southampton but out on loan at Spanish outfit Rayo Vallencano.
The 25-year-old’s statistics aren’t too impressive, but at the same time not threatening if the Championship side did decide to sign him; he has kept ten clean sheets in Spain’s top division during his 28 appearances.
Gazzaniga has also been utilised as a first-choice ‘keeper at St. Mary’s Stadium since arriving on the south coast for £2.5 million from League One club Gillingham, who picked him up on a free transfer following his release from Valencia.
The Argentine is probably searching for a team to settle down and make a real impact at.
With his contract expiring this summer, then it would be an absolute steal for Mark Warburton if Southampton released him – it’s almost a no brainer for Forest.
