Added to Bayern Munich, Borussia and Villa are the goliaths of Stamford Bridge after Chelsea joined the incredible hunt for Rangers’ Calvin Bassey, with a belief they can replace the outging Antonio Rüdiger with the Nigeria star.
Bassey’s stock is continuing to rise, and it’s not just the midtable Villas that are looking to snap him up, but the top sides in Europe.
His exploits in the UEL final, the SC final and last night’s major announcement on the international stage with his finest performance in the Super Eagles’ shirt has seen him ‘soar’, to pardon the pun, and it’s developing so frequently that we’re struggling to keep up with it on Ibrox Noise.
Some have argued that a few performances and suddenly everyone wants him?
Well, this is how it works when you excel at the top level in football – one world class performance changes everything especially when done in a final, and then followed up by continued consistency.
In short, Bassey is seriously hot property and we’d be very surprised if a gigantic bidding war doesn’t start soon.
If Chelsea want him, as well as Dortmund and Munich, we can’t even begin to guess what Rangers can demand for his signature…
