Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter are far from happy after their club were linked with a move for Bordeaux striker Alexandre Mendy.

Forest are seemingly in need of some more firepower up top.

Their current attacking options consist of Lewis Grabban, a 36-year-old Daryl Murphy and an inexperienced Rafa Mir.

While Grabban has proven himself to be quality in this division by scoring 36 goals over the past two seasons – his understudies aren’t quite up to scratch. Murphy has been told he can leave the club, and Mir only netted seven goals in the Spanish second tier last term.

However, Forest fans don’t seem to think Mendy is the solution to their problems as his scoring record isn’t great.

He’s scored just 11 goals in 72 appearances in the French league, and returns like that just aren’t good enough.

Forest supporters believe that their team should be looking at a much more prolific forward.

Other fans took this as an opportunity to criticise the board for targeting mediocre players.

One Twitter user even compared this to the Fawaz era, stating that the owner isn’t spending enough money on the squad.

A few members of the fanbase stated that the Reds need players who are proven at this level if they’re going to be promoted this season.
