The Reds had a very busy window as Chris Hughton looks to strengthen his squad but they failed to bring in a number nine before the deadline as they look for competition for Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor.
Therefore, you’d have to think a striker would be under consideration if the right player came up and reporter César Luis Merlo has stated that talks have begun with Ferreyra over a potential switch.
The 30-year-old has been without a club since leaving Celta Vigo over the summer, where he endured a tough spell. That followed a worrying recent trend for Ferreyra, who hasn’t made the impact expected at Benfica, Newcastle and Espanyol over the years. However, he did shine for Shakhtar after moving to the Ukrainian giants from Argentina.
Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Nottingham Forest appearances?
That mixed recent record means that Ferreyra has divided opinion among the Forest support, although some did rightly point out that even when he has struggled, it’s been at a higher level than the Championship.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Fair enought what are people expecting could not get one over the line before the window shuts so trying to fet someone in even if its a short term deal is better then relying on Grabban and Taylor if one gets injired then we are in a mess

Used to be a prolific anytime scorer bet for Shakhtar back in the day https://t.co/8tQ99JaoPW

Would definitely welcome a different option up top. Free agent and spent his whole career at a higher level than us https://t.co/61P571vGQl
