Bristol City star midfielder Alex Scott has been linked to move to the Premier League. The club and fans do not want to sell their star midfielder.

However, they will have to accept the reality that the move is going to happen sooner or later. Although, it seems like Bristol City won’t let him leave without getting the right fee for him.

ALEX SCOTT AND PREMIER LEAGUE TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY

There is a slim chance that the midfielder could leave the club for Premier League. A number of top clubs are monitoring his progress at Bristol City. Tottenham, Leicester, Leeds, Everton, and Manchester United have shown interest in the young midfielder. The report also mentions a number of European top clubs are also showing interest in him. However, Bristol City are aware of the situation.

The Robins are serious about keeping the best player at the club for another season. According to reports, they have reportedly slapped a £20m price tag on the midfielder. This is not a huge fee for a Premier League side to spend. However, it will be a big risk to spend on a such young midfielder. However, his experience at such a young age might justify the price tag.

BRISTOL CITY SHOULD STAND TOUGH ON THEIR GUARD FOR THE PRICE TAG

It is not easy for a Championship club to stand against big sides on the price tag. However, Bristol City can certainly do it. They have the midfielder under contract till 2025. Another reason the player has played 38 games last season in the midfield for the Robins at the age of 18. So to have such an experienced young English midfielder, the Premier League clubs will have to pay over the odds.

Another thing is the money received from his potential sale is going to help the club invest in different positions. The fee would also help the club balance their financial books. Hence the Robins should stand firm on their price tag. They also have to take examples of other young payers that are being sold to the top League sides.

The examples of Carney Chukwuemka getting sold to Chelsea from Aston Villa for a reported 20m fee including bonuses with only a year contract left on him. These are some details Bristol City must keep an eye on. Alex Scott is under contract till 2025. So, Bristol City have some protection on his value.
