The Scotland international is currently enjoying the best season of his career to date, with an impressive 16 goals in 38 matches in all competitions throughout the campaign so far.
The 27-year-old has proved he’s capable of turning in mature and match-turning displays in the Europa League and Champions League, as well as for his country, and that has caught the attention of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, according to the Sun.
Forrest signed a new long-term contract at Celtic Park just four months ago, but could he still be tempted to make a move to the English Premier League? Here’s how supporters have reacted to the reports:
Fair play to Liverpool for going after James Forrest don’t think Salah with be happy having to play back up though…

don't know if this James Forrest to Liverpool has any truth in it.. maybe Klopp is looking at the success of Andy Robertson idk. what i do know is that based on his form over the last 2 seasons Celtic couldn't replace him for £8m

James Forrest 8m! Ill crack the jokes. When James Maddison went for 20m.

Surely James Forrest is worth more than the quoted 8 million when you see some of the dross that moves around the EPL for 3 times as much..
A few no bad bargains to be had from said 'pub league' ,how are Van Dyke and Andy Robertson getting on?

Apparently (according to the media) Celtic would want £8m from Liverpool for James Forrest.
I can only assume they are talking about an initial installment.

James Forrest to Liverpool, say it isn't so. I'm not emotionally strong enough to get through that.

Just read one of the worst transfer rumours ever….
'Liverpool are chasing Celtic Winger James Forrest'
Who makes this up? Should be sacked!

So James forrest to Liverpool let's hope its over 20 million as would take that to replace him the way he has been playing last couple of years.

A few on here still living in cloud cuckoo land and actually entertaining the idea that Liverpool will try to sign James Forrest. It's never happening in a million years. #CelticFC

Never read the article as Headlines usually enough…..though James Forrest for £8M is 😂 arguably the best Scottish Player if not current player in the SPFL. Recently signed a contract until summer 2022. He's worth much much more than that.

James Forrest to Liverpool?! 😂 I love wee Jimmy but that’s ridiculous.

Do you think Forrest has what it takes to play for Liverpool? Could he really provide back-up to Mo Salah and Sadio Mane?
