FC Metz, the French Ligue 1 club, has set a €15 million price tag on their Georgian striker, Georges Mikautadze, amid growing interest from Premier League clubs. Mikautadze has had a standout season for Metz, scoring 14 goals in 35 appearances, and his performances have caught the attention of several clubs in England.
The 22-year-old forward has been linked with a move to a number of. Premier League sides, including Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The English clubs are said to be keen to bolster their attacking options, and. Mikautadze’s goal-scoring record has made him an attractive prospect.
FC Metz, however, are keen to hold on to their star striker and have slapped a €15 million price tag on his head. The French club is not willing to part ways with. Mikautadze unless they receive a suitable offer, which reflects his value to the team. The club’s president, Bernard Serin, has been clear that he will not let the striker leave for a bargain price.
Mikautadze joined FC Metz in the summer of 2020 from Georgian side Dinamo Tbilisi. He struggled to make an impact in his first season in France, scoring just one goal in 20 appearances. However, he has come into his own this season, forming a formidable partnership with French striker, Habib Diallo. Mikautadze’s performances have been instrumental in helping FC Metz secure a mid-table finish in Ligue 1.
What did FC Metz said about it
Mikautadze’s rise to prominence has not gone unnoticed by the Georgian national team. He made his debut for Georgia in. September 2020 and has since gone on to make six appearances for his country. He scored his first international goal in March 2021 in a 1-1 draw against Spain.
It remains to be seen whether any Premier League club will be willing to meet. FC Metz’s asking price for Mikautadze. The £15 million fee is not an insignificant amount, especially for a relatively unproven player in one of Europe’s top leagues. However, Mikautadze’s potential is clear, and he could be a shrewd signing for any club looking for a young, hungry striker with a nose for goal.
