    I like Luongo, be surprised if we can nick him off QPR. It's becoming obvious by the centre mids we've been linked with this past weekend/week what Warburton wants in the centre; Morsy, Scowen and Luongo all terriers, plenty of energy and love getting stuck in.

    Would be very happy with this, though he'll cost a decent amount.

    This guy is brilliant. We will do very well to get him.

    Can't see him being cheap. Still only 24 too.

    Luongo is a great player. I'm surprised no one from the prem has tried him yet.

    We had an even worse season, but Britt Assombalonga is still pretty good.

    Would 100% have Luongo off QPR.

    He was on the Ballon D'Or long list last year ha

    Good to see there is consistency in the manager's choices. The question is: one midfield or two?

    Has to be two, our midfield is terrible and it would take more than one new midfielder to fix that.

    Luongo is just about QPR's best player I'd say.

    Will cost a fair bit. Good footballer though.

    He will likely want two, but he obviously wants one of them to be our "marquee signing" of the summer. And rightly so, too.

    Yeah agree with the other chaps, we need a couple.

    I think a lot of the players we are linked with so far is just press talk to be honest, or just basic enquiries as to a player's availability. I'm sure Warburton is aware that trying to sign other Championship clubs best players is highly unlikely unless you have a shit ton of cash behind you.

    Two midfielders should sort it. Lets hope Luongo is one of them. Very tidy player.

    Great we're going for this type and quality of player, but for these top champ blokes they can take their pick, and the club has a lot of restorative work to do for forest to be an attractive proposition.

    Good that a number of targets for this position have been identified, hope we can tie one (or two) up soon.

    I would say 1. We have enough youth coming through to support Cohen/Vaughn/New guy

    Even with youth players (who may benefit more from a spell out on loan than being on the bench here), we are paper thin in terms of depth and quality in midfield.

    In fact I'd go as far as to say that we have one of the worst midfields in the league as things stand; immobile, slow, gives no protection to the back four, lacking creativity and match winners. We are incredibly weak in that area and I feel that it was one of the main reasons that we were so poor last season.

    We need a decent midfield general type and a quality creative player at the very minimum, otherwise next season will be another season of struggle.
