Nottingham Forest defender Mohamed Drager is yet to kick a ball since signing for the Reds in August.

He has spent time on the sidelines and has found himself playing a lot of football for Tunisia.

As a result, some speculation has linked him with a move away from the City Ground ahead of the January transfer window.

Tunisian top-flight outfit Tunis are considering a move for the right-back, according to GNET News.

Forest would be wise to keep hold of Drager, however.

During the recent Arab Cup, the Forest owned player was very impressive indeed.

He played in four matches as Tunisia reached the final of the competition before losing to Algeria after extra time.

Now, he will head back to Forest, although that could be short-lived too.

The African Cup of Nations starts next month and Drager is expected to be involved for his country at the tournament.

He’s shown enough, however, to earn a chance at Forest.

Djed Spence could be recalled by Middlesbrough and that will leave the Reds short on the right-hand side of the defence.

Forest have Jordi Osei-Tutu who can play there if Chris Wilder does act and Drager can provide competition as the season progresses.

Quality: Drager could provide some quality for Forest

The 25-year-old is still at a nice age to continue improving.

He has experience of playing in the Bundesliga and in Greece, making him a player with a decent amount of quality.

Drager is yet to get a taste of English football. He was on the bench for the 0-0 draw against West Brom but didn’t get on the pitch.

It’s obviously a completely different standard of football but he’s shown enough with Tunisia to earn a City Ground chance.

As a result, letting Drager leave without kicking a ball could prove to be a costly mistake by Forest.
