I think £5m would’ve been too much to pay for a league one striker with one good season under his belt? Thoughts?

Rangers have been scared off a move for Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott by the £5million price tag.
SunSport understands Gers enquired about the 23-year-old hitman, who has netted 27 goals in 44 games since joining Posh a year ago.
But any thoughts of trying to strike a deal vanished the moment Gers chiefs were told of the League One club’s valuation.
Marriott arrived from Luton Town on a four-year deal and his impact last season has also sparked interest from English Premier League and Championship clubs.
It’s believed celtic have also scouted Marriott.
New Gers boss Steven Gerrard is desperate to bolster his frontline options, with Alfredo Morelos his only current available goalscorer.
SunSport revealed on Tuesday that Roma’s giant Nigerian striker Umar Sadiq is on Gerrard’s radar for a possible season-long loan deal.
Gerrard is also keen on Liverpool hitman Dominic Solanke.
But he must wait for Jurgen Klopp to make a decision on the striker’s future and that is likely to take at least another month.
