Nottingham Forest backed to make Alexander Isak-esque signing

Nottingham Forest backed to make Alexander Isak-esque signing -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest should consider signing a ‘world beater’ forward like Alexander Isak in January, according to talkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor.

The Lowdown: Marinakis’ spending spree

The Reds already splashed the cash on 23 new signings in the summer, but recent reports have suggested that Evangelos Marinakis is planning on spending over £100m in the New Year in a bid to avoid relegation.

The Premier League side still find themselves at rock bottom of the league table after suffering a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal last weekend, with the fresh faces mostly failing to make a proper impact.

The Latest: Go big or go home

Speaking to Football Insider about the alleged £100m kitty, Agbonlahor claimed that Forest should make two big-name signings rather than several low-budget ones, with Newcastle striker Isak name-checked as the ideal profile of player.

“The thing I would do if I was Nottingham Forest with £100million is go and buy a £60million player and a £40million player.

“Not loads of little ones, they’ve got so many players like that.

“Go and buy a world beater who can be that striker who gets you the goals to stay up, for instance. Or that winger who can guarantee goals and assists.

“Nottingham Forest have got a lot of nearly players, for me. A lot of £10million, £15million players. Go and buy players who are going to make a difference.

“Look at Isak, go and get players like that. Players who are going to guarantee you performances.

“Not nearly players, players that have been there and done that.”

The Verdict: Marquee signing needed

Steve Cooper is yet to discover his preferred or strongest starting XI, and given his side’s disappointing start to the season, the need for a marquee striker is obvious.

The Midlands outfit have only netted eight goals in 13 games, making them the second-lowest scoring team in the division, a significant reason as to why they are where they are in the table.

Isak, dubbed ‘The New Zlatan’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, scored two goals in three games for the Magpies before getting injured, which is the level of consistency required up top, but who Forest will make a swoop for yet remains to be seen.
