Celtic should be aiming to sell on James Forrest within the next two transfer windows.

The Hoops winger is arguably Player of the Year and his stock is currently high.

Furthermore, Brendan Rodgers admits the club have millions of wingers with more signing on the dotted line.

Now would be the best time to cash in.

James Forrest will find out his Celtic importance this year

This season is massive for the once upon a time youth player to find out where he stands.

His nine years in the first team has seen the 27-year-old be in and out the team but is becoming a mainstay.

Despite early interest from Harry Redknapp’s Spurs, Forrest hasn’t really been linked with a serious move elsewhere, until a recent link with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, via the Scottish Sun.

He has blown hot and cold during his senior career but is now in a rich vein of form.

Perhaps now is the best time for him to move on in order for the club to gain something from their long term investment.

Perfect time to leave Celtic for James Forrest

If the Scotland international was to leave in the near future, he would be leaving on a high.

The youth product is arguably this season’s Player of the Year even with goals drying up recently.

At 27, Forrest is approaching peak age for a footballer and may want to ply his trade elsewhere.

This would allow Celtic to ask for a bigger fee for any clubs that come calling.

Rodgers has already brought in a recognised winger in Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah can play there too.

Additionally, the Hoops have all but sealed another permanent winger in Maryan Shved.

However, the young Ukrainian could go out on-loan until the summer.

The Celtic winger came off the bench at the weekend and may need to get used to that.

He is a fighter and fan favourite and will fight for his place, if he wants to stay.

Perhaps James has his eye on a testimonial at the club and he does deserve one.
