According to the Scottish Sun, both Rangers and Celtic have shown interest in the highly rated League One striker Jack Marriot – but have been put off by the £5 million price tag that Peterborough United have put on the 33 goal forward.
The Scottish club are thought to no longer want to chase the striker after being informed of the massive price tag that they will have to fork out if they are to sign the striker. Marriot has been the subject of a large amount of interest from the Championship during this transfer window with it being thought that Bristol City are another interested party in securing the strikers signature.
Peterborough United will want to hold on to the highly rated forward for this upcoming season – with the hope that he can fire them into the Championship. This may be difficult though, with all the interest that has reportedly been shown in the striker.
Peterborough United want to hold on to the 23-year-old but with Bristol City expected to have money from the proposed sale of Bobby Reid to West Brom, with Nottingham Forest reportedly having money to spend and Leeds United looking out for forwards, it may become an impossible task to hold onto Marriot.
Although Rangers have been supposedly put-off signing Marriot, it’s quite likely that another club will come in and try to swoop the striker away from London Road given the fact that he is a proven goalscoring threat. Although the Championship seems his most likely destination, you never know where he could end up.
