Everton must make a move to sign Celtic winger James Forrest in the summer transfer window, after a report from the Times suggested that the winger is available for just £10million.
Forrest has notched up and incredible 14 goals and 18 assists in 45 appearances in all competitions so far this season, and considering Theo Walcott’s poor record for Everton, signing the 27-year-old in the summer could be a wise move from Marco Silva.
The former Arsenal man has been a huge disappointment this season for the Toffees, whilst Ademola Lookman is struggling for regular game-time.
The idea of Everton signing a player from the Scottish Premiership might surprise some of their fans, but his productivity in the final third would surely make him a great asset for the Toffees.
Forrest is at the prime of his career, scoring goals for fun and creating chances for his team-mates, and whilst he’s likely to be available for £10million, that hardly represents a risk for a club with Everton’s financial muscle.
The Blues will have to try and get this deal done in the summer, however, before Rodgers beats them to the punch by attempting to sign the Celtic ace for Leicester.
Forrest really would be an excellent addition for Everton, and Silva must not hesitate to bring him to Goodison Park before the start of next season, despite the fact that he might not be the most glamorous of summer signings.
