Nottingham Forest have strengthened their squad as best as possible thus far this window but with time to go, they could still do with a few recruitments.
They have avidly been in the market for a right-back and their search has largely found them Sam Byram, currently at West Ham. The 24-year-old was brought to the Hammers after enjoying a terrific time at Leeds but his time with the club hasn’t been great and it seems a move is likely. However a cheaper and possibly better option for Nottingham Forest would be to persuade Kyle Walker-Peters to the City Ground this coming season.
The young Englishman is valued at £2.7 million on Transfermarkt after making his breakthrough into the Tottenham first-team last season, where he managed 9 appearances in all competitions.
His pace and tenacity down the right-hand side impressed the Tottenham faithful but with both Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier already contesting the right-back position, it was never going to be an easy task for Walker-Peters to cement his place in the first team.
He is versatile as well, with the ability to play further forward as a winger or alternatively on the other side as a left-back/left midfielder. Nottingham Forest have spent wisely on new exciting talents this summer and the capture of Kyle Walker-Peters would be no different.
Forest have already acquired 11 new players as Aitor Karanka prepares to do his all in order for his side to challenge for promotion and return to the top flight. Having already had Premier League experience under his belt, Kyle Walker-Peters could be a shrewd addition and a cheaper alternative to Sam Byram.
