Newcastle are reported to be (possibly) interested in a move for Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson and Ben has had an outstanding season for the Teesside club in the Premier League.
But as usual some high fees are being talked about and apparently Middlesbrough now want £20M for their 24 year-old who came through their Academy.
In fact earlier in the season there were quotes he would cost £35M for Boro to sell him.
His uncle is the Middlesbrough Chairman Steve Gibson.
Ben Gibson – impressive for Boro this season
BetVictor have us down as 8/1 to sign the center-back who can also play at left back and he has looked an accomplished player this season, but not for £20M.
Some top Premier League clubs are also supposedly interested in the player including West Ham, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.
But we suppose it does give us something to talk about during this boring International break, since Newcastle do need a top center-back this summer.
West Ham are the 4/1 favorites to sign the player.
24 year-old Center-back Michael Keane of Burnley looked good for England against Germany earlier in the week, but that will only put his price up even higher – probably above £20M.
We have also been linked with 24 year-old Harry Maguire of Hull City who would cost £12M and he would seem the best value of the three?
What do you think?
