What do we think?
While Carvalho and his sidekick have clearly impressed Forest fans with their workout routine, the Portuguese midfielder, who is valued at £4.5 million (as per Transfermarkt), has not exactly done so on the pitch so far this season.
Over his 22 Championship appearances, Carvalho has scored just one goal and provided one assist, in addition to a further goal over three domestic cup fixtures, while averaging a less than impressive WhoScored match rating of 6.37 in the league.
With just nine games of the Championship season remaining, and Forest currently occupying fifth place in the table, time is running out for Carvalho to impress the fans and Sabri Lamouchi ahead of the summer transfer window.
