Sabri Lamouchi will be eager to strengthen his Nottingham Forest squad this summer, as the Reds continue to fight for a place in the Championship play-offs.

The Reds have enjoyed a positive campaign under Lamouchi and a top-six finish looked to be well on the cards for the club before the EFL season was brought to a halt.

Ahead of the final nine games of the season, whenever they may be played, Forest sit fifth in the Championship and sit five points clear of seventh, so the play-offs looks to be a realistic aim.
