Gent forward Moses Simon who is reportedly a target for English Premier League side West Brom and French side Monaco has reacted to the €20m price tag slammed on him by his team.
Simon who has been at the club for three seasons is keen on a move away this summer, and while Gent admit he could be on the move, technical director Michael Louwagie pegged his price tag at €20m.
“I still think so (that Simon is worth €20 million),” Louwagie told Voetbalmagazine.
“Why are they able to sell in the Netherlands for amounts more than €30 million? Where is Memphis Depay now who PSV sold to Manchester United? Vincent Janssen, AZ’s top scorer, went to Tottenham and hasn’t played much. Simon is better. The trend is reversed: Wilfred Ndidi (joined Leicester City) in December, a few Anderlecht boys too”.
Reacting the soft spoken Simon, who has five goals to his name this season said issues regarding his transfer is usually handled by his intermediary and club.
” €20m, am I that expensive? , we’ll find out in the coming days either from my club or agent. My job is to play football, there are people who handle that aspect of my career”, Simon told Owngoalnigeria.com.
