Aitor Karanka’s side have been working tirelessly to identify and obtain new players, as Forest look to mount an electric charge for promotion to the Premier League. Forest have already completed three signings, and while excitement grows over the new arrivals, some of the existing squad will be forced to leave the City Ground. One such player is Tyler Walker.
According to the Nottingham Post, Aitor Karanka is willing to loan Walker for the duration of the season as he seeks consistent first-team opportunities. The Englishman’s chances of representing Forest this term seem rather minute, especially in light of the signings that the club have already completed. For the sake of his development and progression as a player, Walker must grasp the opportunity to leave, and display his potential worth to Nottingham Forest.
The 2017/18 season had started promisingly for the 21-year-old, and he even amassed 16 appearances for Forest scoring a reasonably decent total of four goals. However, his good start was undermined by an unproductive loan spell at Bolton, where the striker had only managed to make five appearances and was eventually demoted to play for their youth team.
Without question, given Walker’s age and inexperience, the forward requires an opportunity with a club that will entrust him with continuous involvement. To date, most of his loan spells have failed to materialise into purposeful development, and the young striker is in desperate need of a successful move.
The striker is certainly a promising player, he is technically proficient and is a threat in the final third of the pitch. His ability to compete in the air needs improvement, and while he often fails to retain possession, the promise is evident for all to see. He requires consistent opportunities to nurture that potential.
