Jack Marriott (Peterborough)

Recommended Posts

No idea. He's had a good season, takes his goals well. Maybe a good second or third choice, maybe not. 

Still waiting on RVP personally.

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

NO CHANCE 

Rangers scared off move for Jack Marriott after Peterborough slapped £5million price tag on striker

SunSport understands the Ibrox club made an enquiry about the 23-year-old hitman but will go no further after being told of Peterborough's valuation

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.

Yeh it seems a high price but we do need at least 2 more strikers... Cummings Miller Herrera Dodoo all going / gone, thankfully, but that leaves us with just Morelos.  

We could probably get a similar player for a more reasonable price in other markets like the one we just managed to get Katic in.

Morelos cost us £1m, so there are definitely players out there.

£5m for a striker who’s been kicking about the lower leagues last 3/4 years and eventually had 1 good season (in the 3rd tier) :lol: £500k max.

Can't see where the 5mil valuation has come from tbh. 2-3 maybe but 5mil seems very high

Seen this boy play twice this season, wasn’t the best player Peterborough had but he was really good on the day. Beat Bradford 3-1 away on Boxing Day and they couldn’t live with him.

He will be at Peterborough for a while if that is their inflated valuation of the lad, huge risk at that money 1m tops.

£500k tops for him although he looks as though he leads the line well and can lob keepers. Handy as a squad player.

No he wont if a cardiff etc decide to take a punt, 5mill is loose change to teams like that

People need to realise 5 million is the new 1 Million.

All transfers in England are now over inflated. 

They talk up all their leagues that is the difference. 

Tons of SPL players have left and done way move for a tsnth of the price. 

I would have Moult before this kid.

No danger he will go for 5m on the strength of a Nicky Clark season.

Easy answer here.

Liverpool buy him for £5 Mil and Gerrard gets him on loan for a year or two, simples :thuglife:

The Peterborough chairmen is a tough guy to deal with.

Been told he usually slaps on ridiculous price tags to scare off clubs.

Precisely why the english lower leagues aren't that good for us to be signing players from in comparison to places like the balkans and Finland 

Over-priced while being unproven or dirt cheap but nowhere near good enough 9 times out of ten

I'm put off with the fact he has a Man-Bun if I'm honest.
