Foderingham is a viable choice for the number one position at Forest

As reported by The Scottish Sun, Nottingham Forest are one of the sides showing interest in Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham ahead of the summer transfer window.

What’s the story?

With the reported imminent arrival of Hull City shot-stopper Allan McGregor at Ibrox, the long-term future of current Gers number one Foderingham is in doubt.

That’s alerted Nottingham Forest to his situation according to The Scottish Sun, who say the Championship side are monitoring his situation alongside division rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Rated at £630,000 by Transfermarkt, is he the kind of player that the Reds should be looking at this summer?

Would he be a good signing?

Cycling between Jordan Smith, Costal Pantilimon and Stefanos Kapino this season, the goalkeeping position has been one of the less assured areas of the Nottingham Forest team of late.

There are certainly question marks ahead of the upcoming transfer window and if the right goalkeeper comes along then they’d be foolish not to consider adding another.

Wes Foderingham could fit the bill. After four seasons in League Two and League One with Swindon Town, Foderingham has earned a reputation as being an excellent pure shot-stopper in Scotland with Rangers.

Although he still has improvements to be make in his all-round game, he’s proven he can cope with the pressures of performing consistently for a big club and could boost Forest’s hopes of reaching the play-offs next season.

There are certainly worse options and if Forest find themselves in the market for a ‘keeper, the 27-year-old is someone they should consider.
