He has only played two games this season, but Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove already looks to be replicating last season’s form.
Cosgrove scored in both of Aberdeen’s fixtures against RoPS. That helped the Dons reach the second round of the Europa League qualifiers.
Last season he was Aberdeen’s top scorer, ending the campaign with 21 goals. If Cosgrove keeps up this run of form, he is bound to attract attention from clubs.
Aberdeen boss expects interest in player
Indeed, last season Derek McInnes claimed that teams in England would be interested in the player. So far no bids have been submitted for the player.
However, should his great form continue this season, it seems only a matter of time before a club bid for Cosgrove.
Must keep hold of player to have any chance of silverware
Aberdeen must resist any bids that comes in. If they want to make an impact in the league or cups this season, they need to keep hold of the player.
The positive aspect for Aberdeen regarding Cosgrove is that he is under contract at the club under 2022. That means that any interested party will have to pay big money for the player.
Will any teams bid for Cosgrove in the summer transfer window? It is too early to tell. Although if he keeps scoring goals in Europe, a bid could emerge.
If a bid is submitted though, Aberdeen know how to respond. The player is not for sale.
