A number of Premier League clubs have been given hope of signing Ezri Konsa after Charlton boss Karl Robinson admitted the England U20 star looks set to leave in January.
Konsa has become a regular at League One outfit Charlton and played a part in England’s triumph in the U20 World Cup championships in South Korea last summer.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton expressed interest in signing the 20-year-old during the last transfer window and could revive their interest in January.
Speaking at a fans’ meeting this week, Addicks boss Robinson said: ‘My gut feeling is that he [Konsa] will go in January.
If I was him I’d be looking to go in January but we should look for a minimum of £5million.
Maybe we could try for a loan back but the player has to want that.’ Konsa, a talented defender who came through the Charlton academy, broke into the club’s first-team last season and was named the Young Player of the Year.
Former MK Dons manager Robinson confirmed earlier in the season that the Addicks rejected multiple bids for the then-teenager in the summer.
Konsa is rated extremely highly at the Valley and appears destined to end up in the Premier League, where he would join a number of Charlton academy graduates including Joe Gomez, Carl Jenkinson and Jonjo Shelvey.
