Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter aren’t convinced that Samba Sow will be a good signing after the club announced his arrival on Thursday.
It has now been confirmed that the midfielder will be plying his trade at the City Ground next term, but fans aren’t too sure on if he’ll be a good signing.
Many stated that they would rather have someone with Championship experience, while others claimed that their squad already has enough midfielders.
It’s hard to disagree with that sentiment as Forest already had six senior players capable of playing as a central midfielder before this latest signing.
It remains to be seen whether or not Sow will turn out to be a good signing, but at the moment fans aren’t feeling confident that he has what it takes to be a top player in this division.
Here’s what Forest fans have been saying on Twitter…
Really not sure about our recruitment. While Bristol City are signing the likes of Kasey Palmer, we’re signing unheard of midfielders from Mali. I maybe wrong but it just doesn’t feel right. #nffc

Rather have Massimo luongo for 2 year contract….
Waiting announce Scott McKenna or Ben Gibson maybe a proven championship player with experience next? ✔

Anyone else slightly worried that we haven’t heard of any of these signings, haven’t a clue about most of them at all

Agreed. This Sow signing seems very familiar to previous signings. Completely unheard of untested at championship level. Then fail miserably. They must feel he is better than Yacob and Watson. Have my doubts, but give him a chance I guess.

I hope I am proved wrong but he’ll no doubt end up being another unknown foreign import that’s rubbish. Disagree that we need another CM, but then, I am not the manager. Unless it was Colback coming in then I don’t see the point.
