Is Martin O’Neill the man to take Nottingham Forest forward? Fans are certainly torn over the answer to that question and could become clearer by the end of the season, judging as to whether they make the play-offs or not.
With a place in the play-offs at the moment unlikely, it seems that Martin O’Neill will have a lot of time over the summer to adapt his team so they can finally achieve promotion next season.
He does know the club and understands the fans have high expectations, so it could prove to be a very important summer transfer window indeed.
So what has gone wrong for the team that spent over £25 million at the start of the season? Their failure to kill off games has come back at them a number of times and is therefore down to the lack of finishers in their team apart from Lewis Grabban.
In a bid to solve that problem, trying to sign Southampton’s Sam Gallagher once again would be a great idea as he’s ready to prove himself on a regular basis.
Gallagher, (who is valued at £2.7 million on Transfermarkt) was a target (as per Alan Nixon of the Sun) for Nottingham Forest along with a number of other Championship sides in January, after Gallagher has played just 30 minutes of Premier League football this season.
The 23-year-old cannot afford to play that little amount of time if he is to progress in his career so a move away this summer will be the best idea for him.
Last season he spent the campaign on-loan with Birmingham and with seven goals to his name, went some way to proving why he is a good Championship striker.
Options in the market for a striker are generally rare so should the opportunity come along once again to sign Sam Gallagher, no hesitation should be made from Nottingham Forest.
