FOUR clubs now keen to sign Dwight Gayle – & he may be available for an absolute bargain..

According to reports, newly-promoted duo Aston Villa and Norwich City are keen to sign Dwight Gayle – along with Championship duo Fulham and Middlesbrough.

It was recently claimed by a few outlets that we’d demand £20m for the striker this summer, however the Chronicle claim we’re looking for ‘upwards of £10m’ – but hope Championship sides hoping to gain automatic promotion will be willing to stretch to £15m.

Considering how prolific he’s been in the Championship, a price-tag between £10-15m could be an absolute bargain for the right club.

Despite scoring 24 goals during a successful loan spell with West Brom last year, it’s said that Rafa Benitez plans to cash in on the striker should he sign a new deal this summer – with the Chronicle stating that any sale would add to the ‘£60m budget’ expected to be offered should the Spaniard stay.

It’s a funny one with Gayle. He’ll want to prove himself in the Premier League, but I’m not convinced the likes of Villa and Norwich will pay big money to sign a player who’s only ever got into double figures in the Championship.

I’d back a potential move to Fulham personally – who aren’t mentioned in the Chronicle’s latest piece but were linked with him via the Evening Standard last month and have shown real interest in the past during their last stint in the second tier.

Yes it would mean another season without Premier League football for him, but they’d offer him a return to London, decent wages and big ambitions to seal immediate promotion back to the top flight – not forgetting the fact they’ll need a new striker soon when a big offer arrives for want-away ex-Mag Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer.

  1. If these championship sides want a striker that bangs goals in for fun in the championship he is worth more than 15 million more like 20 Newcastle would be stupid to sell for anything less.
