Nottingham Forest will look to put the disappointing 2020/21 season behind them with an encouraging start to the new championship season next month.
Facing Coventry City on August 8th, it will be fascinating to see who competes for the Reds in that particular game.
Forest manager Chris Hughton hasn’t made any drastic changes to his team in terms of new additions, despite parting ways with a large number of players earlier this summer.
While the 62-year-old will be determined to put his own stamp on the club’s squad by the end of the transfer window, he may also have a fight to keep one of his star players at the City Ground.
Because of his impressive performances in the championship, Joe Worrall has drawn a lot of interest in the Premier League recently.
Brentford, Norwich City, West Ham United and Burnley have all been linked to defender changes.
While the Bees are no longer in the running for Worrall’s signature after finalizing a move for Kristoffer Ajer yesterday, Sean Dyche’s team have yet to rule out a fall.
A report by The Sun in May suggested Burnley was about to make a £ 10 million bid for the 24-year-old.
While this particular offer did not materialize, it goes without saying that the Clarets will try to reinforce this transfer drive if they lose one of their key players in the coming weeks.
According to the Daily Mirror, Burnley is only expected to move for Worrall if they are forced to say goodbye to James Tarkowski.
The England international’s current contract with the Clarets expires next year and he still has to agree new terms with the Premier League team.
While Burnley has not yet received an offer for Tarkovsky during the current window, it is believed that Leicester City is monitoring the defender’s situation at Turf Moor.

Joshua Cole from GIVEMESPORT says …
While Hughton may still have a list of potential successors for Worrall, this particular update is relatively encouraging as Burnley will be hesitant to part ways with Tarkowski this summer.
As an integral part of Dyche’s team, the 28-year-old started in 36 of the club’s 38 league games last season when he managed to achieve an impressive WhoScored game rating of 7.02 in the top division.
With Brentford no longer pursuing a move and Burnley deciding to change his transfer stance, there is a possibility that Worrall will play for Forest next season.
By reproducing the ads showing him average WhoScored game ratings of 6.74 and 6.93 in the last two championship campaigns, the defender could help his team achieve relatively big success in that league later this year.
