Mark Warburton will be pondering carefully over which players he decides to bring to the City Ground this summer, as recruitment will be vital for Nottingham Forest’s success next season.
The club haven’t been strongly linked with any acquisitions as of yet.
I suggest Forest would be strengthening their midfield if they obtained current Burton Albion £850,000-rated midfielder Jackson Irvine over the upcoming months.
The 24-year-old has only spent one campaign in England during his career having made the switch from Scottish outfit Ross County to the Pirelli Stadium last summer, on a four-year deal.
Irvine had been pivotal to the Brewers’ survival in the Championship last season and was arguably their player of the year, earning himself plenty of plaudits across the division and, as a result, is strongly linked with a move away from Burton.
Jackson Irvine has also racked up nine caps for the Australian national team, despite being chosen several times to represent the Scotland under-19 squad during his time across the border.
Primarily a defensive man in the middle, the Burton Albion player wouldn’t have to relocate as Nottingham isn’t too far away from his current location.
That would help persuade him fairly easily to sign for Forest if they made a swoop for his services.
Forest supporters, would you welcome Jackson Irvine to the club? Would he improve the current playing squad? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments below!
