The Verdict: Hugill would add firepower to Forest’s attack
Hugill could conceivably add some firepower to the Reds’ attack as they seek improvement in 2021/22. Across his career, he has registered 82 goal contributions from 278 career appearances, with 71 goals and 11 assists [Transfermarkt].
His work can often go unnoticed , something which has been highlighted by his manager Daniel Farke, who stated that Hugill “thinks about the team more than he thinks about himself” in an interview in January 2021 [The PinkUn].
Farke has also described Hugill as a “role model” in recent times, something which is bound to please the City Ground faithful [The PinkUn].
Looking ahead to 2021/22, Nottingham Forest should look to seal the deal for the Canaries attacker before other clubs take an interest and swoop for him.
