Nottingham Forest want to recruit a new striker before the close of the winter transfer market and are considering to bring back Michail Antonio to the City Ground.
The winter transfer market will close in a few days. Nottingham Forest are still looking to add a few players to their squad. A goalkeeper, a defender and a striker.
For the striker position, the club is considering their former player Michail Antonio. The Jamaican striker is not having his best season at West Ham and is reportedly on his way out. After three consecutive seasons with ten goals in the Premier League, he has scored only two in 19 league games this season. This poor record is due in part to the increased competition in his position with the arrival of Gianluca Scamacca this summer. A departure before the close of the winter transfer window is therefore not out of the question, and Nottingham Forest are apparently among the candidates to welcome him, according to the Daily Mail.
Michail Antonio previously played for Nottingham Forest, between 2014 and 2015, and made fond memories for the City Ground fans, scoring 16 goals in 50 games. A return to the club that subsequently saw him become a regular starter for West Ham in the Premier League could do him good, and his presence in the centre of Nottingham Forest’s attacking line could be of great help in the club’s quest to stay in the Premier League.
