Nottingham Forest fans won’t be happy with how their season has gone so far. Despite the fact they came into the season boasting plenty of players with Premier League experience, Aitor Karanka’s side failed to impress. However, new boss Martin O’Neill could be set to bring in reinforcements, with Paul Taylor claiming they’re eyeing up Leo Bonatini.
Leo Bonatini is another loan target for #nffc – as seems to be the case with many of their targets, they will face competition. It's just that time of year. But the Wolves striker would be a good addition. Was a big influence for them in the Championship last season. Scored 12.

Paul Taylor of the Nottingham Post got plenty of Forest fans excited when they saw this one, as they would love to bring in the Brazilian striker, even if he is struggling with his form and confidence as of late. Last season, though, the 24-year-old bagged 12 times in Wolves’ promotion season, including a run of seven in six games from September to November.
If the Brazilian could rediscover that kind of form in the second half of the season for Forest then he could well help the club force their way into a playoff spot. At the moment, it looks unlikely, but with 17 games left this season and Forest just four points outside of the top six, the goals that Bonatini would bring to the club could surely give them a massive boost to their playoff chances.

If he regains his confidence he could be a good addition for any championship team. Won't be for a lack of trying, he'll work hard at least.
