Derby County have placed a price tag of £2million on defender Max Lowe, according to Football Insider.
The 22-year-old made three appearances for Derby last season and spent the rest of the campaign on loan at Aberdeen, where he made 42 appearances in all competitions.
It was revealed earlier today that Derby have rejected an offer of £1.5million from Brentford for Lowe and Football Insider are now reporting that the Rams will only consider selling the left-back if their £2million valuation is met.
Brentford are now thought to be considering other targets, with manager Thomas Frank determined to strengthen his defensive options before the transfer deadline on Thursday.
Derby face Huddersfield Town in the Championship tonight and will be hoping to start the new season with three points, while Brentford lost 1-0 at home to Birmingham City in their opening game of the campaign at the weekend.
Brentford boss Frank is keen to bring in a new left-back before the end of the transfer window and Lowe could be a decent signing for the Bees.
Lowe is a promising player and impressed while on loan at Aberdeen last season. He doesn’t have a great deal of experience in the Championship, but Frank has been able to get the best out of young players in the past.
However, it doesn’t appear as though this transfer has any chance of happening now with Brentford interested in other targets and £2million does seem like a bit much for a player with hardly any experience in the Championship.
