Armand Traore’s time looks up at Forest and Karanka is right to cash in

Nottingham Forest defender Armand Traore has been linked with a move to Turkish side Antalyaspor according to Turkish newspaper Fanatik as cited in The Nottingham Post.

What’s the story?

The 28-year-old joined Forest in 2016 30 appearances for the club before he was loaned out to Cardiff City for the second half of last season where he only played four times.

The Senegalese international is valued at £1.13million on Transfermarkt but he fell out of favour with Aitor Karanka and he looks set to leave the club this summer and according to the report Antalyaspor are close to sealing a deal for the left-back.

Time to move on

It’s clear that Traore isn’t in the plans of Karanka and he hasn’t enjoyed the best of times at the City Ground.

If Forest can get something close to his Transfermarkt valuation they will have done well and it’s money they can reinvest to sort the squad out in Karanka’s first summer transfer window for the club.
