Three possible Forest signings as they target one more loanee

Nottingham Forest 2

We take a look at three possible signings Nottingham Forest could make before the loan deadline.

Stuart Pearce has confirmed that Nottingham Forest are still on the look out for a new loan signing before the deadline this Thursday.

The Reds may have ended their winless streak and appear to be hitting form, but Pearce isn't entirely happy with his squad. 

The Forest boss still wants to make one more addition to his team and in this piece we take a look at some of the possible loanees who he could target. 

Scott Sinclair (Manchester City)

The Manchester City winger has been waiting for a chance at the Etihad for some time, but doesn't seem to have a chance of making it with the current Premier League champions.

Sinclair went out on loan to West Bromwich Albion in last season, but he struggled to make the impact he was having at his best when playing for Swansea City.

As a result, a temporary move to a lower-level could be a good option for him and his addition to the team would be an exciting prospect for Forest fans.

Pearce's side are loaded with pace in their attacking ranks and Sinclair would certainly fit in with their style of play. 

Nathan Ake (Chelsea)

A highly rated youngster, Nathan Ake has threatened to make the grade at Stamford Bridge this season.

He has been in a number of first-team squads, but Jose Mourinho's depth of options means that his time on the pitch has been limited. 

Chelsea are known to be happy to loan some of their more promising youngsters out and have a range of players enjoying temporary spells in the Championship currently.

Ake could be the next one to follow suit and he would add quality to the Forest squad, and can play in both defence and midfield.

Gedion Zelalem (Arsenal)

Tipped for greatness, there has been a high level on Zelalem's development from Arsenal supporters and management staff. 

The creative central-midfielder has earned a number of plaudits at youth-levels and there is a belief that he can go on to be one of the finest players to ever represent the club. 

Arsene Wenger may be keen for him to gain some experience of playing senior football before calling him up to the starting squad, though, and Forest could be a good move for him.

With the options the side have going forward his passing range could be a huge weapon and Pearce may be thinking about making a move for the youngster.
