The transfer window continues to represent an exciting period for football supporters, a time in which they anticipate star-studded signings to augment their side’s chances of success. Yet, while it’s undoubtedly an intriguing time for clubs, there is a tendency to disregard players who are already at the club, with teams favouring recruits. One more loan move could prove to be enough for Forest’ Jorge Grant.
According to HITC, Sunderland are interested in signing Nottingham Forest’s Jorge Grant on loan following a mightily impressive spell with Notts County. The 23-year-old has spent the previous one-and-a-half-years on loan with Forest’s bitter rivals, where he’s excelled and demonstrated his worth as an exhilarating prospect.
In 72 appearances for County, the midfield playmaker scored a commendable total of 24 goals – 18 of which were scored last season. This is a marvellous return for a midfielder, and if Grant emulates his achievements with Sunderland in League One, then he could soon be ready to play a significant role for Nottingham Forest.
The 23-year-old is highly regarded for his proficiency at dead-ball situations and his remarkable blocking ability. Furthermore, he has developed a tremendous propensity of completing key passes. Without question, there are areas of his game that do require attention, such as his ability to compete in the air, and his tackling skills. Nonetheless, the midfielder is clearly gifted and has the potential to be a superb player.
One of Grant’s primary attributes is his confidence, he is willing to switch the play when required, and he certainly isn’t afraid of trying to score from range. If he succeeds to prolong his excellent goal-scoring record on loan this season, then Forest should seriously consider integrating him to the squad for the start of the 2019/20 season.
