Wolves target Alex Scott has reportedly had a ‘ton’ of scouts watching him in recent months.
The Bristol City youngster has established himself as one of the Championship’s best prospects, after coming onto the scene last season.
Scott has been a regular for City now for a while, and has clocked up an impressive 73 appearances for the club already.
The talented 19-year-old has already earned himself the nickname the ‘Guernsey Grealish’, and is capable of playing multiple different positions in midfield.
Recently, Wolves were reported to be showing interest in Scott.
Telegraph journalist John Percy stated that Wanderers were very interested but that the asking price of £25 million set by the Robins was too high.
CBS journalist Ben Jacobs has provided some more information about Scott. And he makes it very clear that Wolves are definitely not the only team who are interested.
He said on The Football Terrace podcast: “Alex Scott is inevitably going during the summer. He’s had a great season for Bristol City, they are desperate to keep hang on to him during this window.
“But there has been a ton of scouts that have watched him over the course of many months. Lots of club looking at him.
“The original valuation of £12 million plus add-ons is seen as relatively optimistic in terms of sources, so Bristol City where they to do anything in the final days of the window or the summer would be looking for an all in package of £25 million or more.
“They are not ruling out offering a new contract either to try and protect the value. One day soon in the next window or two he will go and he will become over time, I think, an important Premier League player.”
Wolves have huge job on their hands to sign Alex Scott
Scott likely won’t be going anywhere in the coming days. It was claimed recently that he had decided to see out the season at Ashton Gate.
The Robins want him to sign a new deal. The club’s owner Steve Lansdown has said there is an offer on the table.
Scott signing that could potential bump up his market value even more, which would be a blow for Wolves.
This is already going to be a really difficult deal to do because so many clubs are showing interest.
It’s clear that Scott is set for a very bright future, and whoever lands him will be one lucky club.
