Former Nottingham Forest star Nigel Jemson insists that the club need new signings before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
The Championship club have struggled immensely at the start of the season.
Under the management of Chris Hughton, they are rooted to the bottom of the Championship table and did not win any of their opening four games of the season.
They have been active in the transfer window but have yet to actually invest in a player.
Loan deals for Watford’s Philip Zinckernagel, Arsenal’s Jordi Osei-Tutu, and Manchester United’s James Garner have been struck, as has a free transfer to sign goalkeeper Ethan Horvath.
Jemson insists that Forest will need to splash the cash before Tuesday if they are to ensure that they do not spend the season struggling at the base of the table, especially given the age profile of the current squad.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “For sure, there has to be new players coming in.
“I’ll be perfectly honest, I’ll be worried if we don’t get any more signings in, about how the season will pan out. It is imperative that we get new signings in, it relieves a little bit of pressure on other people, certainly the younger players because you get new signings and it gives everyone a lift.”
Jemson played for the club between 1988 and 1991.
