It will be interesting to see how this season pans out for Nottingham Forest, following the exit of star striker Britt Assombalonga.
The former Petebrough striker joined the club in 2014 and became a massively important part of the clubs side, scoring 30 goals in 65 games for the Reds before his £15 million exit to Middlesbrough this summer.
It leaves the club with an awful lot of money to spend to strengthen their side enough that relegation will not be an issue this year, and have already been linked with a number of names.
Tendayi Darikwa has already come through the door to strengthen the right back position, whilst Aston Villa’s Gary Gardner has been linked with a return to the club. Cameron Jerome is another name that has been linked.
Forest should look at another winger, however, and Swansea City’s Wayne Routledge is a good place to start, with his future at the club not looking bright.
Swansea fans voted Luciano Narsingh as the only winger at the club of Premier League quality, it seems as though Routledge will struggle to challenge for first team football this year.
The 32-year-old has shown his quality at the top level in previous years, however, and has scored 15 goals and made 15 assists during his six seasons with the club.
With his age and the fact that he won’t play an enormous part in Swansea’s season next year in hand, he wouldn’t cost an awful lot and would make a fine addition for Forest, who only have Mustapha Carayol, Jamie Ward and Barrie McKay as wide options so far.
Forest fans… Do you agree with this? Would Routledge be a strong addition? Let us know in the comments below.
