Nottingham Forest are reportedly interested in signing goalkeeper Brice Samba from French outfit Caen.

The fanbase have had plenty to say about this potential move on social media, but their views on the matter are quite different.

The arrival of Samba would be Forest’s ninth signing of the summer.

The initial reaction from a number of fans was confusion. The Reds already have four senior goalkeepers, including one who was only signed a few weeks ago.

It certainly is a bit of a headscratcher as the goalkeeping position isn’t usually one that gets rotated too often.

With Costel Pantilimon, Jordan Smith, Luke Steele and Arijanet Muric all already at the club, some fans can’t understand why they’re in for another goalie.

Despite a few supporters questioning their interest in the stopper, others have been able to rationalise it.

In fact, when you read their arguments the potential signing of Samba starts to make a lot more sense.

The aforementioned keepers may not be at the club next season as Muric is only a loan and two of the other three are out of contract next year.

The signing of Samba seems like it’s an instance of long-term planning, and some fans understand why their club are in for him.
