The month of July is nearly upon us as Nottingham Forest boss Chris Hughton continues to carefully scan the market and prepare for next season.
The Reds are yet to make their first move in the transfer market despite bidding farewell to 12 players at the end of last season, but will be hopeful of making progress over the coming weeks as pre-season gets underway.
Here, we start our latest transfer round-up with the potential addition of a player who promotion from this level last season…
According to Football Insider, Forest are lining up a move for Watford winger Philip Zinckernagel.
Zinckernagel moved to Watford in January, arriving on a five-and-a-half year deal from Bodo/Glimt.
The Danish winger scored one goal and registered five assists in 20 appearances for the Hornets, as they won promotion to the Premier League under Xisco Munoz.
But according to Football Insider, Forest now have a “concrete” interest in the 26-year-old, and are reportedly lining up a move.

According to The Sun (27/06; page 61), Brentford are showing an interest in Joe Worrall.
Worrall endured a frustrating campaign with injury last season, but still ended up being a key player for the Reds and won the Player of the Season award.
He has been linked with a host of Premier League sides already this summer, with newly-promoted Brentford now said to have joined the race for the defender.
Worrall is reportedly valued at a price of around £12million, having signed a long-term deal at the City Ground last season.
Blackpool are keen on signing Jordan Gabriel on a permanent basis – however Forest do not intend to sell the defender this summer.
Gabriel spent last season on loan at Bloomfield Road, helping Blackpool win promotion via the League One play-offs.
He will now look to impress Hughton in pre-season and replace Cyrus Christie, who has gone back to Fulham after an impressive loan spell last season.
Forest, though, are not looking to sell Gabriel this summer, despite interest re-emerging from those at Bloomfield Road, as per Nottinghamshire Live.
