It was claimed recently by the Record that Forest had tabled an opening bid of £3 million for the defender.
The Championship club are now set to come back with an improved offer for the Dons defender.
What will Nottingham Forest be willing to pay for Aberdeen star McKenna?
You would like to think the second offer Forest lodge will be much higher than the reported £3 million they initially tabled for him.
How high in price will they go though to land the defender? Last year, according to the Scottish Sun, Aberdeen rejected a bid of £7 million for him. Now he’s played another full season and earned some more Scotland caps along the way, the Dons will likely want eight figures for him.
Is McKenna worth say £10 million? Not at all, but in the modern market, prices are inflated. They should be asking for high prices for their players, even if that price is a little far-fetched.
How high will Forest go though? It’s unlikely they’ll crack the £10 million barrier, but perhaps a bid of £5 million would turn Aberdeen’s head slightly. That figure is a staggering fee for a club like Aberdeen right now.
The Pittodrie side seem quite content to ask for big money though in an attempt to fend off potential suitors. It’ll be intriguing to see how long they can resist the temptations of cashing in on McKenna.
