Nottingham Forest fans want to see a Striker transfer
Are satisfied with Nottingham Forest's recruitment so far this summer
Taiwo Awoniyi / £17m / Union Berlin
Spent much of his career on loan from Liverpool at clubs around Europe before a breakout season at Union Berlin last year, netting 15 Bundesliga goals. Quick and direct striker who is likely to suit Forest's style of play, but forwards from Germany have struggled in the Premier League before. 3/5
Dean Henderson / Loan / Manchester United
An all-round talented goalkeeper who is a commanding presence at the back and can bring a good amount of Premier League know-how to an inexperienced Forest side. 4/5
Moussa Niakhate / £10m / Mainz
The centre-back has barely put a foot wrong for Mainz in the last four years with Mainz and is a bargain. 4/5.
Giulian Biancone / £5m / Troyes
A young and versatile defender, capable of playing centrally or on the right, who could take time to adjust to the intensity of the Premier League and will not tighten up the defence instantly. 2/5
Omar Richards / Undisclosed / Bayern Munich
Defensively sound left-back who made 12 appearances for Bayern Munich after joining from Reading. The 24-year-old is better judged on his solid Championship efforts for the Royals. 3/5
Neco Williams / Undisclosed / Liverpool
The Wales international has impressed when given his opportunities at club and international level and while he has some big shoes to fill by replacing Djed Spence, he's got age on his side and the quality to succeed at this level. 4/5
Wayne Hennessey / Undisclosed / Burnley
Steve Cooper says he values the Wales international's on-field ability as much as his off-field traits, believing he'll be a great addition to the dressing room and a solid back-up to Dean Henderson. 3/5
Brandon Aguilera / Undisclosed / Alajuelense
Forest have struck early to sign Costa Rica's teen sensation Aguilera before the hype train potentially gathers momentum at the World Cup. The attacking midfielder will spend the first half of the season on loan at Guanacasteca.
Harry Toffolo / Undisclosed / Huddersfield
A modern left-back who loves to get forward and is good at it, registering 14 goal involvements in a superb 2021/22 season at Huddersfield. There's been criticism of his defending at times and while he's been shown up by the odd winger, he's more often than not been a solid performer in that regard. 3/5
Lewis O'Brien / Undisclosed / Huddersfield
An intelligent attacking midfielder full of energy who likes to pick up the ball and drive at defenders. O'Brien's game has few weaknesses, although his goal return could be better for a player that gets forward so much. 4/5
Jesse Lingard / Free / Manchester United
Becoming Nottingham Forest's 11th signing of the summer, forward Jesse Lingard represents a fine piece of business. The 29-year-old brings Premier League experience and a serious creative threat and will be key in the club's pursuit of survival. 4/5
Orel Mangala / £12.7m / Stuttgart
The Belgium international is an excellent dribbler who will look to have a strong influence on Forest's play in the final third. His defensive skillset will need to improve to become a mainstay in Steve Cooper's side. 3/5
Undisclosed / Lens
Free / Hull City
Loan / Luton
Loan / Reading
Free / Newcastle Jets
Undisclosed / Dijon
Forest will need to buck a worrying trend for playoff winners with only 13 of the last 30 teams promoted via that method avoiding relegation.
Dean Henderson has some big shoes to fill, stepping in for Brice Samba, who helped Forest keep 17 clean sheets in the Championship following Steve Cooper's appointment.
Forest have spent five seasons in the Premier League but three of them have ended with relegation.
Brennan Johnson topped Forest's assist charts last season but the next three players on the list (James Garner, Philip Zinckernagel and Djed Spence) were all on loan. However, the addition of Jesse Lingard could mitigate those losses somewhat.
Nottingham Forest are eagerly anticipating their long-awaited return to the Premier League but it could turn sour if they fail to significantly improve their squad. Loan signings played a huge role last season and it is asking a lot of the likes of Brennan Johnson and new signing Taiwo Awoniyi to tear up the top flight in their first season at this level. Steve Cooper has shown himself to be an excellent manager but he has a tough job.
