The view of Chris Hutton from Nottingham Forest will welcome Joao Carvalho back to City Ground this summer.
What are we talking about?
This is stated in a report by Nottinghamshire Live, which claims that the country hired by Carvalho, the equipment of LaLiga2 UD Almeria, seems unlikely to take the opportunity to buy a clause in the temporary contract of the 24-year-old at the club.
As such, the 3.6 million-pound man is expected to return to Nigel Dowty’s Academy this summer, when Houghton will consider whether he believes the attacking midfielder has a future at the club.
Should Forest sell Carvalho this summer?
Carvalho must go
Since arriving at Forest from Benfica in the club’s record deal of 13.5 million pounds in 2018, it would be fair to say that Carvalho has not fully justified his price.
So far in his Nottingham career, the £ 15,000-a-week midfielder has scored just six goals in his 67 appearances for the club, meaning that each strike has cost Garibaldi approximately £ 2.25 million – a figure that don’t take into account his rather solid salary.
In addition, after being loaned out to Almeria earlier this season, Carvalho did nothing to suggest that he had improved during his time outside the Championship by not scoring goals and registering only three assists for his 27 participations in LaLiga2, so the average rating of the SofaScore match of 6.82 is enough just to rank him as the 15th best performer of the club in the second level of Spain.
As such, in order to provide Houghton with the means to play this summer in order to build a team capable of securing a much more respected position in the league than the one in which the current campaign will end, the 62-year-old must do everything in his power. his strength to get rid of Carvalho in the upcoming window, as it seems that the time for the 24-year-old man that Joe Warral once claimed is a “huge” future.
