As quoted by Football Insider, former defender Alan Hutton has suggested that £25m would be a fair price for anyone looking to sign striker Odsonne Edouard.
The French forward has had another excellent start to the season and is one of our leading scorers across domestic and European engagements.
Certainly, he is a player capable of playing at a very high level and that, unfortunately, could mean one of the big clubs from the big leagues in Europe come calling.
Hutton is expecting us to be able to command a decent fee for him, though, with him reflecting on the market in its current state:
“In today’s day and age some of the transfer fees are outrageous. At the end of the day, this is a boy who is scoring lots of goals, doing well, he’s an under-21 international – he’s got everything going for him at the moment.
“You can’t really deny the price tag, in today’s market I don’t think anyone would argue with the £25million.”
It’s a fee similar to what we got for Kieran Tierney and, though we want to keep our best players, when that kind of cash is on offer it is hard for us to turn down.
Let’s just hope no one actually comes in with such an offer for this season at least.
