With sources confirming Rangers have slapped a minimum £10M pricetag on captain James Tavernier, the club is set to rake in at least double that for the 27-year old this summer given the number of suitors who want his services.
At least two Premier League sides have been quoted as interested, in Brighton and Aston Villa, and a glut of others are said to be in the mix, and with Rangers putting eight figures on Tavernier’s head, the former Wigan man is almost certainly going to fetch around double the base £10M given the likely bidding war that will ensue for his signature.
Of course there remains a chance Tavernier will want to remain at Ibrox, but the reality is the Premier League in England is the Promised Land, and at his age, having only played two senior matches at that level in his Newcastle days, the right back will surely want to both prove himself at that level, and get the vastly increased riches on offer in that division.
He might even have one eye on a serious shot at playing for England as well, even if not exactly a starter.
Nevertheless, if Rangers are to sell Tavernier, the base price is now £10M, and certain to go much higher.
Is he one Rangers should sell?
