‘Interest is high? Then £60 million!’

They may not be good at soccer, but they’re good at business. English Premier League (EPL) side Nottingham Forest, who are in a nail-biting race to stay up this season, have hastily upped the price tag on a specialist midfielder who is hotly pursued by big clubs.

But it’s not an outrageous price tag. It seems to be the most they can realistically extract. Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United have raised their asking price for Morgan Gibbs-White, 24, to £60 million. That’s enough for either Spurs or Newcastle to open their wallets.

“Nottingham have unveiled a price tag as Tottenham and Newcastle’s interest in Gibbs-White grows,” English outlet TeamTalk reported on Nov. 11 (ET). 바카라사이트 Nottingham have slipped into the relegation zone this season after being deducted four points for breaching Premier League financial regulations. They are currently 17th in the league with 29 points, barely clinging to life. However, with two games left in the season, they’re only three points behind 18th-place Luton Town (26 points), so they’re far from certain to stay up. Luton Town could still pull off an upset.

In this situation,

Gibbs-White, Nottingham’s key and EPL-ready midfielder, is attracting interest from other clubs. Often referred to as the ‘entry-level Jude Bellingham’, Gibbs-White was acquired by Nottingham in 2022 for £42.5 million from Wolverhampton. He’s a very talented player and is only in his early 20s, so there’s plenty of room for improvement. Gibbs-White has proven his talent in 35 appearances this season, scoring five goals and providing eight assists.

Tottenham and Newcastle are the two clubs that are actively interested in him. Spurs are looking to bolster their midfield by signing Gibbs-White to pair with James Maddison. If Gibbs-White joins the club, he could provide support for Son Heung-min. Newcastle are also keen on Gibbs-White, with manager Eddie Howe wanting to sign him.

With all this interest, Nottingham have slightly increased their asking price for Gibbs-White. “Nottingham have raised the price tag on Gibbs-White to £60 million ahead of the summer transfer window,” the outlet reported, citing a report from Football Insider. Nottingham would prefer to sell Gibbs-White at a high price in order to solve their financial problems.

Gibbs-White is also said to want to move to a team higher up the league rather than a relegation-threatened club. 사설 토토사이트 It will be interesting to see if Tottenham or Newcastle will be the first club to sign the player with a price tag of £60 million.
