Nottingham Forest are keen on Tranmere Rovers winger Corey Blackett-Taylor, according to a report by Football Insider. 

Celtic are also believed to be interested in the exciting wideman.

Blackett-Taylor, who is 22 years old, scored five goals and gained six assists in 35 appearances in all competitions last season. Tranmere will face a battle to hold onto him this summer after their relegation to League Two.

The Whites only signed the youngster in June last year and he signed a two-year deal at Prenton Park.

Blackett-Taylor rose up through the youth ranks at Aston Villa and went onto make two appearances for their first-team, as well as have a loan spell away at Walsall before leaving the Midlands club on a permanent basis.
