Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka has been busy in the transfer window, and it seems that a former Manchester United left-back is on his radar.
On Monday, The Nottingham Post reported that the Reds are hopeful of sealing the signature of Fabio from Middlesbrough.
The publication states that talks have been ongoing regarding a deal for the 27-year-old, who joined Boro from Cardiff City in 2016.
The Brazilian is already familiar with Karanka’s coaching having worked under him at the Riverside Stadium.
Last season, though, Fabio began dropping down the pecking order, eventually featuring in 24 Championship matches.

In total, the left-back, who can also play on the right-hand side, contributed with two goals and an assist in all competitions.
Forest have a vacancy in the left-back role, and considering Fabio’s experience of second tier football, there is no reason why he would not be able to slot in comfortably.
We asked you whether the Brazilian would be a positive addition to the Forest team, and an overwhelming majority are all for the potential transfer.
