A number of Premier League and Championship clubs have been keeping tabs on the highly-rated St Patrick's Athletic midfielder.

Forrester is regarded as one of the best young talents to emerge from Ireland in recent years and was recently named the League of Ireland PFAI Young Player of the Year.

There is growing interest in Forrester, who became an internet hit after his goal against Shamrock Rovers this season went viral with over 175,000 hits on Youtube.

Premier League clubs including Everton, Sunderland and West Ham are believed to have been reguarly sending their scouts to check the tall and elegant goalscoring midfielder's progress this season.

Forrester has one season remaining on his contract with St Pats which is sure to only increase the level of reported interest in the player dubbed the "Irish Messi" by the St Pats supporters after that audacious chip against Shamrock Rovers in April this year.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
