Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has admitted that the club are willing to sell highly-rated goalkeeper Fraser Forster, but only if the price is right, Sky Sports reports.

The 25-year-old has been in terrific form for his club and has drawn high praise with his performance against Barcelona in the Champions League, which included an incredible double save from Neymar and Alexis Sanchez, which has further increased his chances at grabbing the number one jersey for England ahead of out-of-form Manchester City ‘keeper Joe Hart.

Forster’s excellent form has recently piqued interest from some of Europe’s top clubs, including Spanish champions Barcelona, while Manchester United and AC Milan have also been linked with a January bid.

And despite being a key figure in their plans, Lawwell has said that they would not stand in the player’s way if the chance to play on a bigger stage came along.

“These things sort themselves out,” he told the Daily Record.

“If we’re bringing players here to develop them and get in the Champions League and they do well, England is down the road.

“If we are offered the right fee, we will take it and reinvest in another keeper or another centre forward or another midfielder.”

Laawell also admitted that if Forster really wanted to leave then there wouldn’t be much they could do to tempt him to stay as they would not be able to compete with the wages that their Premier League and European counterparts would be able to offer.
