Nottingham Forest have been tremendously active in the summer transfer window, and in addition to the arrival of Hillal Soudani, the Reds confirmed the signing of Jack Robinson from Queens Park Rangers. The versatile defender began his career with Liverpool, before making the switch to England’s capital in 2014. Is he a good acquisition for Forest?
As the BBC reported, Jack Robinson has signed a two-year deal with Nottingham Forest following the expiration of his contract with QPR. The former Liverpool defender attained 39 appearances for QPR, before making the switch to Nottingham Forest.
To his credit, Aitor Karanka has identified that Forest’ defence was an area that required considerable improvement, and he has worked continually to enhance the pedigree of his defensive options. A total of 65 goals conceded in 46 league games is frankly woeful, and with their new arrivals, it appears that Nottingham Forest’s defence retains greater quality as we approach the forthcoming season.
The arrival of Jack Robinson is a significant coup for Forest, as the 24-year-old defender flaunts priceless versatility. While the 24-year-old is widely regarded as a full-back, the majority of his appearances were made as a central defender for QPR, where he excelled. He is also capable of playing in midfield or operating as a wing-back, which further demonstrates his usefulness to Nottingham Forest.
One of Robinson’s most notable strengths is his refined tackling ability; he is also an expressive player who doesn’t resist the opportunity to dribble with the ball. It’s no question that Robinson has struggled for continuous first-team involvement since leaving Liverpool, that said, his last season with QPR is illustrative of his quality and his ability to thrive in the Championship.
