Nottingham Forest will cast their scouting net far and wide this summer and they could have eyes and ears on the upcoming Euro 2020.

The Reds have Scott McKenna playing for Scotland at the tournament, with the Tartan Army in England’s group.

Chris Hughton might have his mind on a few other players though and why not target Europe’s biggest tournament this summer.

Obviously, the big-hitters will be out of Forest’s reach but some players might be realistic and ultimately, catch the eye.

Here we look at three they could choose to monitor at Euro 2020.

The left-back enjoyed two loan spells in the Championship last season.

First, he starred at Luton and in January he continued his good form after checking in with Stoke for the remainder of the campaign.

Forest will be in the market for a left-back, with Yuri Ribeiro now departed and Gaetan Bong surplus to requirements.

Norrington-Davies has five Wales caps to his name and played the full 90 minutes of the team’s final warm-up game.

Following Sheffield United’s relegation, they might choose to take a look at him ahead of next season.

If they don’t, however, the 22-year-old looks like a decent option for Forest.


Robert Taylor

A very interesting one for Forest fans to monitor is former youth prospect Taylor.

The Finland international was on Forest’s books during the 2008/09 campaign but failed to win a deal.

He has since tried to discover himself in Finland, Sweden and Norway, currently playing for Brann.

The Finland-born midfielder can also operate on the left flank and so far during the 2021 campaign, he’s scored once and registered two assists.

Midfielders will be in Forest’s sights and the recruitment team might pay close attention to Taylor.

Matej Vydra

Given that he seems to be constantly linked with a move to Forest, it seems likely someone will mention him in the City Ground discussion this summer.

Vydra is some way down the Czech Republic pecking order, although his strong end to the season at Burnley might get him some minutes.

The 29-year-old scored three goals in the Premier League from his final nine appearances.

The Clarets might choose to shuffle their pack this summer though and could offload the versatile forward.

Vydra earns £35,000-a-week at Turf Moor but perhaps a loan move to the Championship could be an option this summer.
