We've already been linked to an £8m rated 20 year old Brazilian midfielder.
I've nothing against signing players as long as they are the right players and will improve the team. The scattergun approach in the Summer, signing anyone with two legs and a pair of football boots, was crazy. Up to 4 different people at the club signing players. The owner's son was like a rich kid in a toy shop spending daddy's money. The "quantity over quality" approach very rarely works.
I see that the local rag are once again on about us signing Spence on loan in January, stoking up the debate from those who post in the comment section on why didn't we sign Spence, Garner, and Zinks in the Summer. I read an article in the Guardian which stated that Cooper was offered all 3 of them by the Board, but turned them down. If Cooper didn't think they'd be good enough, then that's fine by me. Move on, and forget about them.
If Richards and Niakhate are fit after the world cup that would solve a lot of problems defensively. If not then we should probably strengthen there (and move on Mbe Soh)
Priority should be signing a winger to give us a few more options in how we play.
A midfielder and striker would be useful as well. Its rumoured we've already agreed a deal with a Brazilian midfielder (Scarpa) and Ui-Jo is ending his Olympiakos loan early so will come 'back' to Forest
On that note Scarpa may turn out to be a real gem.
Just won the league title with Palmieras and won best player in the league. Let's hope he gets a work permit.
Whats the catch? He has a wand of a left foot and can finish. It's not Gona be one of them like Mike Bassett Wirral county manager is it where the player we are actually signing in all that footage is the goalkeeper?
The catch is south American players (directly from South america at least) are really hit and miss in the Premier league, and will at the minimum take a few months to settle in. I don't think we'll see much of Scarpa this season
