Earlier Ibrox Noise told you Rangers were looking in the potential region of £35M for Calvin Bassey, and despite a few of the usual moonhowlers deriding this and suggesting we’re ‘mental’, media sources confirm Rangers will not humour any bids much below around £30M for the Nigerian.

It is understood Bassey is receptive to a move south, understanding that Rangers are open to the sale too but only at a price ‘well in excess of £25M’, with Aston Villa at the head of the queue and eager to get a deal done pretty quickly.

In truth, Bassey could be gone inside a week, and Sky Sources confirm Rangers will come to the ‘negotiating table’ but only for a bid around the £30M mark.

This is hard ball – as we explained earlier, to yet more derision, Rangers are in a strong financial position at present, much stronger than 6 months ago, and they don’t need to sell Bassey for anything less than the market rate of a player with his potential and his current quality.

Make no mistake, he’s showing signs of becoming as good as Virgil Van Dijk at the same age if not a lot better, and you don’t let that standard go for £15M any more.

Rangers are not going to let him go on the cheap, and Steven Gerrard especially knows this.

Expect a Scottish record-shattering transfer fee for Bassey to manifest itself before too long.
