Calvin Bassey to Aston Villa resurfaced today after press reports strongly linked Rangers with interest in one of Villa Park’s promising youngsters in the form of 20-year old striker Cameron Archer.

Obviously some press are speculating based on Steven Gerrard’s links to Bassey himself, but the makeweight story of £5M-rated Archer is hinting at a £20M plus player deal for the Nigeria international to make his way south.

And if Rangers end up with a 8 goals and assists in 20 appearances striker, it might not be the worst deal.

Bassey’s stock continues to increase, with every passing international he plays for his country, on top of his sky high reputation earned with two stellar finals in a row for Rangers, leaving the defender a coveted asset and highly in demand.

Villa do seem to be the front runners, but as their manager Gerrard said about Archer, anyone who wants the striker better be prepared to dig deep in their pocket.

Well, the same certainly applies to Gerrard if he wants Rangers’ star defender, given his market value is increasing all the time.

While it is unlikely Rangers would get the full £35M the lad is likely worth these days, £20M plus a £5M player in a position Rangers need strength in depth in would not be unwelcome.

But as with all stories this summer window, time will tell.

  1. 20 is not enough no chance
    30 plus the kid
    Or better still stay as dont need the cash

  2. Who says Cameron Archer is worth £5m? He scored 7 goals out on loan at Preston last season. Had he been a Preston player that wouldn’t have registered with Rangers. As you’ve said before when Gerrard loans you out it’s the beginning of the end. Are Aston Villa trying to squeeze £5m out of a player that they were about to cut loose anyway.

  3. Calvin bassey.what can we say.fukn class but looks like he’s going.get as much as we can

  4. We’ve seen when Gerrard loans someone out it’s because he’s not in his long term plans. So ye can probably get tae with that offer although I know literally nothing about the lad other than what you’ve just told me!

  5. Agree with comments above we need CASH always have ,forget other clubs cast offs ,25 million cash villa or forget it ,you have plenty of cash after all .
