Nottingham Forest are planning to appoint former Olympiacos and Marseille manager Michel this summer

A host of names such as Ivan Vukomanovic, Pep Clotet, Neil Lennon and Gus Poyet have all been linked with the managerial position at Nottingham Forest over the past few weeks but due to the impending takeover of the club, an appointment has not been made as of yet.

Nonetheless, a host of names continue to be linked with the managerial position at the City Ground and now according to reports emerging out of England, it has been claimed that Forest are considering making a swoop for Real Madrid legend Michel.
