The 25-year-old has never been capped by England at any age group level, and has only played a handful of games in the Premier League to date.
But, regardless, interim England boss Gareth Southgate is on the brink of handing the central midfielder a surprise call-up for the crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier against Scotland later this month,according to the Telegraph.
Both British nations have endured a rock time of it lately for different reasons, and the match at Wembley on November 11 could decide if Southgate or Scotland manager Gordon Strachan keep their job in the long-term.
Southgate doesn’t seem put off by Forshaw’s inexperience ahead of the showdown – leaving a lot of supporters over the moon:
If Forshaw plays for England then everybody round my house for a parmo

Forshaw for England ? Would he set the world alight ? I'm not sure but he'd certainly be better than what's there already
