Reported Wolves target Alex Scott has reportedly received a new £20 million price tag from Bristol City.
The 19-year-old has been seriously impressing in the Championship this season.
He’s a regular for the Robins, and has caught the eye with his technical quality and capacity to play in different roles across midfield.
In recent times, Scott has drawn a lot of interest from other clubs.
The Sun reported yesterday that West Ham United and Crystal Palace are among those to have made checks on him.
But apparently, the two clubs would be unlikely to go near his valuation this summer.
It is thought Wolves are also in for Scott. Last month, there were claims that Wanderers held talks with City about a potential move.
In the end, nothing materialised because the Robins reportedly wanted £25 million for Scott. Wolves deemed that too high an asking price.
But it looks as though City would now take a little less for Scott.
But that value would likely shoot back up if the player was to sign a new contract at Ashton Gate.
The club’s owner Stephen Lansdown recently told BBC Guernsey that there was an offer on the table for Scott.
The youngster recently commented on his future, stating that he was just focusing on the football for now.
Wolves target Alex Scott could easily move for more than £20 million this summer
So Scott’s valuation seems to have come down, and one wonders if that means Bristol City know he won’t be signing an extension.
Perhaps the goal here for the Robins is to set the asking price slightly lower to get clubs circling and perhaps prompt a bidding war.
Several clubs are interested in Scott. So there is a reasonable chance bids could go over that £20 million figure.
It will be interesting to see if Wolves make a move in the summer, considering they’ve already supposedly held talks with City about a transfer.
Any combination of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Matheus Nunes could leave. So new recruits for midfield should be necessary.
