There might be some plans at the City Ground this summer regarding transfers, there might be none at all, there might be a lot.

We don’t know now, and we won’t know until after the window is over just what they’re going to look like until it closes in early October.

Whether the club want to sell off all of our key players to reinvest in the squad like I have suggested as a real possibility, or if the club want to keep all of the key players and use them as building blocks whilst adding pieces like journalist Barry Cooper suggested, they need to make sure that the plans are in place as soon as possible.

How much will Nottingham Forest spend this season?

Less than £15m

Less than £15m

£15m or less

£15m or less

With the Championship season set to start in just over six weeks’ time, pre-season isn’t going to be as straight forward as it has been in previous years, and if Nottingham Forest want to bring players in to help them get over the top (be they straight up bought, or by using the money raised from player sales beforehand), they are going to have to do it quickly.

We know that players need time to adjust to new systems, and with the quick turnaround before the next campaign, that margin of error is going to decrease significantly, especially if we hope to hit the ground running in the first few weeks of the season.

So hopefully the club used the three months with no football wisely to line up their targets so we can get the deals done early, and hopefully get a jump on the rest of the Championship.

What about you? Would you like to see the club get their business done ultra-early this summer?
