Bristol City transfer stance revealed as Celtic line-up multi-million pound deal

Published

on

Bristol City are reportedly looking to sell Niclas Eliasson this summer and value him at around €5 million (£4.34m) to €6 million (£5.44m) with Celtic, Lazio, and Burnley among the sides keen.

It has been an unusual season for the 24-year-old winger, who despite having the most productive campaign of his career and leading the team in assists struggled to cement a place in the starting XI.

Eliasson made 40 appearances in total for the Robins this term, 19 of which were from the bench, and added three goals and 12 assists.

The South West club have triggered the option in his contract to keep him at Ashton Gate until 2021 but it has been reported that he has refused to extend his deal further.

According to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, the Robins want to sell Eliasson this summer and believe he is worth a fee in the region of £4.34 million £5.44 million.

It does not appear they will be short of suitors, with Burnley, Celtic, Fenerbahce, Lazio, and Villareal all understood to be keen.

With Benik Afobe returning to Stoke City at the end of his loan deal and question marks over the future of Famara Diedhiou, it seems as though City could be a different looking side in the final third next term.

The Verdict

Eliasson dazzled at points last season but never seemed to be able to lock down a regular place in the side – with former manager Lee Johnson indicating he was something of luxury player most useful when a side was in the ascendancy.

Given the 24-year-old could walk away for nothing next summer, it makes a lot of sense for the Robins to look to cash in on the winger now if he is unwilling to extend his current deal.

Even so, it is a shame to see a talented player that looked to really be finding his feet leave Ashton Gate and the Championship.
