Nottingham Forest should make a move for Aston Villa outcast Gabriel Agbonlahor

The forward looks set to leave Villa in January.

It is looking increasingly likely that Gabriel Agbonlahor could be on his way out of Aston Villa in the winter.

The club captain has not got off to a good start under the fitness mad Remi Garde, who is clearly not of the belief that Agbonlahor is currently in a position to play first-team football for the basement club.

Aston Villa are currently on six points but Agbonlahor does not look like saving the day, based on his recent form.

He will not however want to stay on the sidelines. So who should make a move for him?

One theory would be that he is perfect for Nottingham Forest.

Forest have done wonders in the loan market recently but they do have some issues that need addressing.

Liam Trotter and Jonathan Williams' loan deals expire in a month and there is doubt surrounding Kyle Ebecilio's current situation.

So a space for a loan player might open up and Forest would do well to bring in Agbonlahor.

Nelson Oliveira has recently started to find the target but the club are still short in the striker department.

Agbonlahor would thrive in the Championship. The three cap England international has pedigree in the Premier League and the attributes to power Forest toward the play-off spots.

If Forest want to be serious about pushing on they must consider a potential move for a player like Agbonlahor in January.
