Rangers have been warned off 31-goal striker Jonson Clarke-Harris after manager Barry Fry, DoF at Peterborough, revealed Posh will not sell the on-fire hitman ‘on the cheap’.
The £2M striker, last valued two years ago and probably worth double that now given his notable improvement since 2019, is a wanted man, and will not go for pennies says his club chief.
Indeed, his last three seasons have yielded an excellent 66 goals in all competitions for the 26 year old but it must be added with a caveat that this is all at League One level and his return in the Championship is infinitely less impressive with just 9 goals in 57.
However there is a feeling if he made the step up now, his growing maturity would yield considerably better results.
Contract? Signed till 2024 so Rangers will have to pay full market price and that is looking like about £4M if he’s a player Steven Gerrard seriously wants.
In truth, Rangers’ transfer activity has been very quiet since the Euros, with, as Ibrox Noise spoke about some weeks ago, a real radio silence on our business.
Whether Clarke-Harris is a leak or a red herring only time will tell.
