The summer transfer window is edging closer and closer as Nottingham Forest still aim to preserve their status as a Championship club.
That is surely a rare occurrence on the south side of the River Trent but with a new manager and plenty of promising youngsters breaking into the first team, a successful campaign next year is definitely not an unreachable dream.
In order for that to happen, however, manager Mark Warburton will need to do his homework and research behind any departures or incomings in the transfer window, especially for players he wants to improve his current roster.
From his time in Scotland at Glasgow Rangers, we know that the 54-year-old is heavily interested in investing time and money into youthful, prospective first-teamers.
Mark Warburton – alongside his former Rangers colleague Frank McParland, who is the new Director of Football at Nottingham Forest – is likely to continue this pattern at his new club.
So here are three players Warburton must send scouts to watch as the summer quickly approaches.
