Nottingham Forest are planning on spending around £100million on new signings in the January transfer window, according to a new report.
The Lowdown: Big-spending summer at Forest
It has been a tough start to life in the top flight, however, with Steve Cooper finding it hard to juggle his squad and get his signings in sync with one another.
Forest’s spending this season doesn’t seem to be done just yet, however, following a fresh update.
The Latest: More signing in January?
According to Football Insider, the Reds are ‘planning’ to splash out as much as £100million on signings in January, with owner Evangelos Marinakis giving the ‘green light’.
It is stated that new sporting director Filippo Giraldi will be handed a ‘huge transfer kitty’ to further bolster Cooper’s squad.
The Verdict: Too many cooks?
This is an exciting update, in terms of showing Forest’s financial power, but it is important that new signings aren’t simply coming in for the sake of it.
Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?
There could come a point where Cooper actually feels he has too many options at his disposal, instead preferring to get the most out of a smaller group of players.
A couple of January addition certainly wouldn’t go amiss – perhaps two expensive incomings – but any more than that could leave players unhappy at their lack of playing time and find it hard for Forest to find cohesion week in, week out.
