The former Norwegian club of Gift Orban have said they believe Gent can sell the red-hot striker for at least 20 Million Euros this summer.
Stabaek pocketed over three Million Euros for Orban, who has taken Belgium by storm since his transfer in January.
They will also get a percentage of his subsequent transfer.
The club’s sports director Torgeir Bjarmann told Het Nieuwsblad the striker could now attract a transfer fee of around 20 Million Euros.
“And if they sell him this summer, then we are also happy,” he quickly added.
Gent coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck has already joked about a 50 Million Euros transfer fee for the striker.
Gent top official, Michel Louwagie, though has insisted they are not considering such a quick-fire sale.
“It is not the intention to sell a player who comes in February in the summer,” he said while referring to other huge outgoing transfers they have posted.
“There are agreements with him and his agent, but we are not going to make any big statements about his future. Let us enjoy him, as we did Jonathan David or Bryan Ruiz.”
Orban, 20, has a contract with Gent till June 2027.
