Aston Villa are lining up a £7m offer for Celtic midfielder David Turnbull, according to The Scottish Sun.
The Lowdown: Turnbull’s award-winning campaign
The Hoops may have not had the season they wanted, but Turnbull certainly made an impact in his first campaign as a Celtic player.
Turnbull was also named the PFA Scotland’s Young Player of the Year recently, and it seems as his displays have caught the eye at Villa Park.
Should Celtic build their side around Turnbull?
Yes, he's quality!
No, easily replaced!
The Latest: Villa readying offer
The Scottish Sun claim that Villa manager Dean Smith is looking to add to his creative midfield ranks ahead of the 2021/22 season and has received glowing reports regarding Turnbull.
Villa representatives have watched Turnbull on numerous occasions and now thought to be readying a £7m bid.
Turnbull’s Transfermarkt valuation stands at just £1.62m, so the Hoops look set to be tested with a bid over four times that figure.
The Verdict: Hoops must keep Turnbull
Unless a club-record bid comes in (£24.3m), we think Celtic should reject all offers for the 21-year-old this summer.
There looks set to be a Parkhead rebuild both on and off the pitch this summer, and Turnbull has shown he can be an integral part of Celtic’s future with his displays in a struggling Hoops side this season.
On that basis, we think Celtic need to keep hold of the midfielder, who Frank McAvennie described as ‘incredible’, going forward and should snub a proposed £7m offer.
