Revealed: Forest fans split on a potential deal for Rudy Gestede

The Nottingham Post recently reported that Middlesbrough striker Rudy Gestede was on the potential shortlist to replace Ben Brereton at Nottingham Forest after the youngster joined Blackburn this week.

Forest boss Aitor Karanka has been busy already this summer, bringing in 13 players at a cost of over £20m, but the Nottingham Post reports that the club are looking to bring in another striker after Brereton left in a deal that could be worth up to £7m according to the BBC.

Just 55% of Forest fans who voted in our poll wanted the club to sign Gestede though. The 6ft 4in striker joined Boro from Aston Villa in January 2017 but has only netted six goals in 41 appearances for Tony Pulis’ side.

Valued at £5.4m by Transfermarkt, there are many more prolific options out there than the Benin international if Karanka is to bring in a new face before the loan window closes.
