Miguel Angel Guerrero’s potential switch from Nottingham Forest to Spanish side Sporting Gijon has hit a road block due to financial difficulties, per La Voz de Asturias.
Gijon are not the only club interested in the services of the 30-year-old, with Greek outfit Aris Thessaloniki also looking into taking Guerrero off Forest’s hands.
That’s something that Forest are keen to do as Guerrero doesn’t seem to be in Chris Hughton’s plans, having not come off the bench in the last four games.
But if Gijon is the destination, something needs to change as per the report from La Voz de Asturias, the Segunda Division side don’t have the required funds to make a deal happen, even if Alvaro Vazquez departs their team.
Forest would apparently need to lower their demands for Guerrero if he was to move to Spain, and similarly the player himself would also need to temper his financial expectations to secure football away from the City Ground.
With Hughton favouring a one striker system, Guerrero was always going to struggle for minutes ahead of Lyle Taylor and Lewis Grabban.
After nine first team appearances Guerrero is still goalless for the Tricky Trees, and by the looks of things he won’t get a chance to open his account for Forest.
On the face of it, the decision to bring Guerrero to the club seems to be a poor one.
He just hasn’t fit into the Forest line-up at all and simply put Hughton has better options, even if they aren’t firing on all cylinders right now.
It’s very unlikely that Guerrero remains at the club beyond January, but Forest may have to just lower their demands slightly to make that happen.
