Nottingham Forest are desperately craving new signings. After their successful purchase of Scott McKenna last summer the club might look to Scotland once more.

The defender checked in from Aberdeen during 2020 and has taken to life in the Championship with aplomb.

Amid plenty of summer signings that haven’t worked out, the 25-year-old has proved a more than capable addition.

Forest will have scouts operating in plenty of markets but a glance north of the border might throw up some decent gems once more.

Here we look at three players from the Scottish Premiership who Forest should look at following the success of McKenna.

Josh Doig

Ambitious maybe but definitely one for Forest to take a look at.

It has been reported during the current window that Doig is on the radar for Forest. He will, however, command a big fee.

The 19-year-old has played 37 times in the first-team at Easter Road and is viewed as a future star.

Doig has two years left on his deal and it’s thought his signature will be thought to claim

Forest do need a left-back. Yuri Ribeiro has departed, whilst Tyler Blackett recently had surgery.

If Forest could tempt Doig into checking in on Trentside it would be deemed a major coup.

Lawrence Shankland

The Dundee United striker has been linked with a move to the City Ground previously (The Scottish Sun).

Celtic and Rangers have both monitored his progress too and it’ll be interesting to see if he does earn a big move.

The 25-year-old spent some time out injured during 2020/21 but has still managed nine goals and five assists.

During 2019/20 he fired 28 goals as the club were promoted from the Championship and is viewed as a natural-born goalscorer.

The man with four Scotland caps could be on the radar of several clubs in the summer and why not Forest.

Lewis Grabban and Lyle Taylor are both in their thirties and a younger model will soon need to be sought.

Kevin Nisbet

The Scotland player featured in all three of Scotland’s games at Euro 2020 and will be a wanted man this summer.

He scored 18 times and registered 18 assists as Hibs enjoyed a solid campaign.

According to Edinburgh News, Nisbet is valued at around £4 million and has a whole host of suitors after him this summer.

It does seem unlikely that Forest will sign the youngster for that money, but he’s definitely one they should look at.
