Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka has identified a number of attacking players who he would like to bring to The City Ground this summer according to the Nottingham Post.

The Reds boss has won just three of his 16 matches in charge to date with a lack of goals being the main contributing factor to that woeful record.

Forest have scored just twice since a 5-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on 24 February meaning that The Reds have picked up just six points from their last seven matches.

There are just four clubs in the Sky Bet Championship which have scored fewer goals than Forest this season and manager Karanka is understood to have lined up several potential new additions in the attacking areas which he hopes to bring to the club next season to make them a bigger threat in the final third.

The Reds have recently been linked with summer moves for free-scoring Peterborough United duo Marcus Maddison and Jack Marriott and a number of other players could also feature on Karanka’s wanted list.

Despite Forest’s lack of goals scored so far this season, the club’s 2017/2018 campaign has been relatively worry-free for supporters compared to the drama of last season when they needed a final day home victory over Ipswich Town to avoid relegation to Sky Bet League One.
