Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs boosted as manager names defender price

Ezri Konsa: Attracting Premier League interest

Charlton boss Karl Robinson has admitted the club expect to sell one of their prized assets in January amid interest from several Premier League sides.

Ezri Konsa has seen his star rise in recent months after becoming a regular for the League 1 Addicks and after helping England to success at the U20 World Cup.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton have all been linked with a move, while Tottenham are also reported to be monitoring his progress ahead of a possible move.

Now their hopes have been boosted after Robinson named what the club would deem a fair price for the youngster.

“My gut feeling is that he [Konsa] will go in January,” Robinson said.

“If I was him I’d be looking to go in January but we should look for a minimum of £5million. Maybe we could try for a loan back but the player has to want that.”

Konsa came through the youth ranks at The Valley and was named their Young Player of the Year last season. His progress saw him rewarded with England U20 recognition and Charlton’s decision to reject a reported £2m bid for him during the summer, looks set to be rewarded with a bumper pay day for the club.
