It has been reported that Forest chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi is interested in the former Leeds United boss.
Warnock, who recently left his post at Rotherham United, knows the Championship inside out. Forest are not the only club looking to appoint the Englishman as their manager, though.
According to The Mirror, Blackburn Rovers have made the 67-year-old their number one managerial target.
The Mirror recently reported of Newcastle United’s interest in Warnock if Rafael Benitez decides to leave this summer.
The former Queens Park Rangers and Leeds boss is a very experienced manager, and he would be good for Forest.
However, for Warnock to succeed at the City Ground, he needs to be allowed to sign his own players and should be given time.
The transfer embargo on Forest has been lifted, and this should enable them to at least make a push for the top six in the Championship next season.
If Forest appoint Warnock as their manager and if he fails to guide the Reds to the playoffs next season, then the club should let him carry on.
