If reports in the press at the weekend are to be believed, then Middlesbrough should be bracing themselves for a bid for their young defender Dael Fry.
Indeed, Liverpool are the likely suitors according to the Sunday Express (18th Nov, Page 41).
Liverpool have watched Boro up to six times in recent weeks and have compiled a dossier on the player, who has been a regular for Tony Pulis so far this season.
But how much should Boro demand for Fry?
They would be sure to demand at least £5m in today’s market.
He is an England youth international and is likely to play a vital part in their promotion bid this season.
Boro will be reluctant to sell but if their hand was forced by a Premier League side, then the bare minimum they should be looking at is £5m.
I don’t see why they can’t demand around £10 million for him.
He’s only 21, he’s composed, and has shown that he can be a solid figure in the Championship.
He could grow into a very good defender.
The way the market is, potentially £10m+.
Fry is a player I really like and I think he’s got a real chance of making it into the top flight before too long.
Liverpool would be a massive opportunity for him but they’ll have to pay their dues – like any other club.
