Brendan Rodgers should target Celtic winger James Forrest if he takes Leicester job


Brendan Rodgers should target Celtic winger James Forrest if he takes Leicester job

Leicester City fans should be extremely excited about the possibility of current Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers taking over at the King Power Stadium.

Scottish champions Celtic have confirmed (official website) that they have been approached by the Foxes to speak to the 46-year-old and have granted permission for talks to take place.

Rodgers has revealed his desire to speak to the Premier League club and it seems now like he is contention to replace Claude Puel.


The next Leicester manager will be inheriting an extremely young talented group of players, which is why many see Rodgers as an ideal candidate.

Rodgers would have plenty of quality to work with if he did make the move to the East Midlands, but Leicester should consider a double raid on Celtic by moving for James Forrest in the summer.

Forrest is a dazzling winger that has become an elite player at Parkhead under Rodgers and he would provide the quality in wide areas that Leicester desperately need.

The Scotland international has already scored 13 goals and supplied 18 assists across all competitions this season.

He is a right-winger that could fill a huge void at the King Power Stadium and snapping up Celtic’s manager plus arguably their best player would be a huge win for Leicester.

Forrest is a technically gifted dribbler with an eye for goal and could be a real hit in English football if given the platform.
