Nottingham Forest striker Lewis Grabban believes that the Reds ‘need’ to sign another striker in January.
Sabri Lamouchi’s men are winless in their last three games in the Championship. The Reds are still sat in fifth-place in the league table though, and are well-placed to push for promotion in the second-half of the campaign.
One of the main issues the Reds have faced has been their home form, most notably scoring goals at the City Ground.
It’s fair to say that signing a striker in January will be top of Lamouchi’s list of priorities. He’s only had Lewis Grabban and Rafa Mir to choose from. That’s proved very difficult at times already this season.
Grabban has taken on most of the goalscoring burden himself. He has found the back of the net 10 times in 20 appearances in the Championship this season.
‘Need a striker’
“We need a striker. We need quality players to come in – whoever it may be,” Grabban told the Nottingham Post.
“Me personally, I’m not bothered at all with the speculation around forwards because we need strengthening in that January window.
“Normally teams who go up, they strengthen in that window – it kicks them on.”
The Reds have already been linked with a number of strikers.
The likes of Renaud Emond, Connor Wickham, Guillaume Hoarau and Dwight Gayle have all been linked with the club.
It remains to be seen who the Reds are able to lure to the City Ground in January. But there’s no doubt that they do need some added firepower to help their promotion push.
