Nottingham Forest’s recent run of form will be a real concern, but speculation of Aitor Karanka potentially being sacked is certainly surprising.
The Reds have only won one of their last seven games in all competitions, and they were unable to build on the impressive win over Leeds, as they exited the FA Cup this weekend in a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.
Karanka’s side are just four points adrift of the play-off places and will be hoping to close the gap on the top six at the weekend when they take on relegation threatened, Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
There are areas where Forest need to strengthen and it’s sure to be an important month ahead in this transfer window.
If Karanka gets this wrong, then he could potentially be dismissed before the end of the season, as Forest definitely need signings to strengthen their squad for a promotion push for the remaining five months of the season.
But who should Nottingham Forest be targeting this month?
