Dan Potts could become key figure at Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest are considering making a move for Luton Town full-back Dan Potts, according to the Nottingham Post.

What’s the word?

Aitor Karanka is likely to be in the market for a new left-back due to the probable departure of Armand Traore.

Eric Lichaj, who predominantly plays on the right but is capable of switching, is also expected to leave, while Juan Fuentes is out of contract.

The Nottingham Post claims that the Reds are monitoring Potts, who played a key role in Luton’s promotion to League One last season.

The 24-year-old signed for the Hatters in 2015 after failing to make the grade at West Ham United, where he began his youth career.

What can Potts provide?

The left-back is still young and developing his game, but he can more than hold his own having made 42 appearances in League Two last season.

Forest could do with a new face who has both defensive and attacking qualities, and Potts ticks the boxes on that front.

During the 2017-18 campaign, the Barking-born player scored seven goals in all competitions, and one of those was struck in the FA Cup.

Forest have also reportedly shown an interest in Aston Villa’s Alan Hutton, but the soon-to-be free agent is traditionally a centre-back whereas Potts fits the profile.
