Since his arrival on loan in the summer, Pereira has already installed himself as a fan favourite at the City Ground.
The 20-year-old’s flair, pace and skill is exceptional and he has already terrorised a number of Championship defences this season.
Although his discipline is a slight concern, with the youngster having three red cards to his name already, once he can sort this he will grow to be a key player.
Pereira will fit perfectly into the new back five that Montanier is adopted in recent weeks and he can be a big player for Forest this season.
Although Pereira has admitted that he would love to play for his parent club Benfica, Montanier should plead with the owners to sign him permanent.
