Following 55 and Rangers’ European heroics last season, the attention on Steven Gerrard’s charges has been infinitely more intense the past few months.
Stories linking Rangers players with sales is at an all-time high, and given how key they were last campaign, the prices attached to them have gone much into line with the new market world Rangers haven’t really been part of till this summer.
Ibrox Noise takes you through all the stories, and just what’s going on.
The most recent one, Tav has been linked out to Arsenal and Man Utd among others, who clearly see a top class RB and a chance to get him at a decent cost. His value is anywhere from £5M-£30M but he’s crucial to Rangers.
Another crucial one, his new deal just hasn’t happened and there’s murmurs linking him out. We know he’s weighing up his options and seeing what his best move is. A sale here with the likes of Leeds sniffing about would net Rangers around £10M.
A fair few clubs been looking at him – we don’t know what the future is for the Swedish star, but he’s one we’d rather keep. His CV makes him valuable, and if Rangers had to sell he’d go for anywhere up to £10M or even £15M.
Yes, clubs are interested again in Barisic, who has a market value of up to £10M. His injury issues are a concern now, and he had a pretty unfortunate Euros. He’s one Rangers want to keep because Calvin Bassey ain’t up to it.
Yeah this one is looming large. There are rumours and counter-rumours here, but we know he’s hot property and if Arsenal, West Ham or Everton do make a move, Rangers will profit anywhere up to £25M.
Galatasaray were put off by the price, but Aribo is quietly interesting a lot of clubs in Europe. He’s one with a tonne of potential but for now he’s more safe. Thankfully.
Name a club who haven’t been linked with Hagi… the Romanian star is interesting a tonne of outfits, and he’s one who could get Rangers around £7M or £8M if he was to move on.
Porto’s the big one – Rangers want £15M, Porto aren’t yet budging on their £10M offer. We’ll just see how that one goes.
Rangers’ brilliant season means a tonne of our top assets are vulnerable – we’re not selling half the team, don’t worry, but one or two of these do have to go to balance the books.
They won’t go for modest amounts though.
