Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter have been reacting to their reported interest in Uruguayan striker Leonardo Ulloa.

The Reds are rather light up top as their backup options are an inexperienced Rafa Mir and a 36-year-old Daryl Murphy. However, despite the East Midlands club’s apparent need for a striker the fanbase don’t want to see Ulloa sign.

The striker has, of course, played in this country before enjoying spells with both Brighton and Leicester City.

He was solid during his time in England as well. He netted 28 goals in 70 appearances for the Seagulls before scoring some important goals for Leicester as they won the Premier League in the 2015/16 season.

Many Forest supporters were happy to acknowledge the talent that Ulloa once possessed, but some believe that at the age of 33 he won’t have much to offer their squad.

Other fans weren’t so kind when talking about his potential arrival. A couple of fans outright stated that the club should avoid bringing in the attacker.

Separate sections of the fanbase stated that their frontline needs an injection of pace, and at the age of 33, Ulloa simply doesn’t have the speed that many Reds followers think is necessary.
