Nottingham Forest will look to put the disappointing 2020-21 campaign behind this summer by hiring a number of top-notch operators who can take them to new heights in the championship.

While the Reds don’t have to make their first signing in the transfer window just yet, it is certainly only a matter of time before manager Chris Hughton joins his roster.

After Forest decided to part ways with Michael Dawson, Glenn Murray, Sammy Ameobi, Yuri Ribeiro, Samba Sow, Abdoulaye Diallo and Michael Hefele earlier this month, it will be interesting to see how Forest find replacements for them Player goes ahead.

The Reds, who were particularly weak in the attacking sense last season, may be tempted to invest the money in a new striker in the coming weeks to try to solve this problem.

However, it could be argued that Forest might also find it useful to turn to Brennan Johnson for inspiration after the Welsh international’s impressive loan period in Lincoln City.

While the 20-year-old couldn’t get the Imps to promote him at the beginning of the year, his appearances at Sincil Bank were downright spectacular.

Not only did Johnson find goal 13 times in 48 games for Lincoln, he also provided his teammates 14 assists.

Given his promising performance, the winger has drawn a lot of interest elsewhere in the past few weeks as Forest had to turn down several requests for the winger.

In a new update on Johnson, it has now been revealed that two Premier League teams are now reportedly tracking his situation on the City Ground.

According to The Athletic, Leicester City and Leeds United have entered the race for his signature, while Barnsley and Brentford both remain interested in a move.

Johnson, whose current contract with Forest is slated to run until 2023, is valued by the club at £ 10million.

Joshua Cole from GIVEMESPORT says …

Given how impressive Johnson was during his temporary tenure at Lincoln, it’s hardly a shock to see him attracting interest from multiple Premier League teams.

While the winger may be tempted to compete against some of the world’s top premier players, it could be argued that staying at the City Ground this summer would be more beneficial for him.

By mimicking the performances in which he scored double-digit goals and assists for Lincoln last season in a Forest shirt, he could become a key player for the club.

To stave off interest from others, Hughton must convince Johnson that he will be able to play regularly at the championship level in the coming season as the winger has been limited to just four appearances in that league since graduating from the Academy of Reds.
