Tottenham Hotspur, Wolves, and Brighton among clubs after Bristol City’s Alex Scott

Bristol City midfielder Alex Scott is attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Wolverhampton Wanderers, AFC Bournemouth, Leeds United, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Leicester City.

This is according to Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports, who says that the Robins are valuing the player at around £12million. This could be an issue for his potential suitors.

In all honesty, the price tag doesn’t seem that audacious for an up-and-coming midfielder. Bristol City would have noticed the state of the transfer market.

Teenagers with potential command a huge fee more often than not. It wouldn’t be a bad gamble for Spurs to take given Scott’s rise to fame in the Championship.

Scott to Spurs?

He has made 25 appearances in the competition so far and has been a strong presence in their midfield alongside the likes of Matt James and Joe Williams. He has played the third-most minutes for his team this season.

It just shows how important he is to manager Nigel Pearson’s plans. Moreover, he still has two-and-a-half years left on his contract at the club (Transfermarkt), which is why Bristol are well within their rights to ask for 12million Pounds, especially given so many clubs’ interest in him.

If Spurs can’t meet that or bring the price down, there is no point exploring this avenue. We aren’t in a position where we can focus all our time and attention on the future.

Our team needs immediate solutions. As good as Scott is in central midfield, especially on the defensive side of things, he won’t be a starter for us over Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – at least for now.

That being said, given the jump up in divisions and the quality of the squad, being a squad player at N17 shouldn’t be a bad proposition right now. This is a deal that we shouldn’t bother ourselves with if it isn’t easy to conclude but it wouldn’t be a bad bit of business if we add Scott to our midfield – which has been lightweight in depth in recent months.
