While there’s no official ‘announcement’ on this nor will there be, Rangers are happily waiting on offers for a clutch of first team player squad members, including Jon McLaughlin, Glen Kamara, Ben Davies and Scott Wright.
Michael Beale is keen to trim his squad, with five being let go already, and he’d be thrilled with the funds from those four who are not seen as part of his plans going forward.
Beale has confirmed Kamara needs to move on, and while hinting Davies could have a role to play was far from explicit on that one, while saying little to nothing about winger Wright.
Other players who would be shipped out at the first sign of a bid include Kemar Roofe and potentially Ianis Hagi.
But the four of Davies, Wright, Kamara and McLaughlin are players the manager is actively keen to get the funds for, and none of them are part of the club’s pure plans going forward.
So what do Rangers hope to secure for this quartet?
Wright is still interesting Preston but while a fee of around £500,000 was said to have been agreed between the clubs, the deal has seemingly stalled for now. Nothing has further moved on that one.
McLaughlin has no value, and that would be a mutual consent or minimal sale. No one is reportedly interested at all. We can’t say we’re surprised. We’re sure the Nag’s End XI in Birmingham are preparing a bid though.
But Davies and Kamara will net bigger money. Davies has a market value the same as he was bought at, around £4M, and Rangers don’t want to sell for much less. There’s also the issue the player’s wages are so high he’ll only go to a club who will at least match them. Sheffield have been mentioned.
As for Kamara, his value is between £4M-£10M and Rangers are looking for a healthy chunk of that to come in as soon as possible. We’re hearing whispers of Besiktas at the moment.
Either way, Rangers want to ship these guys out, with at least three of them high priority exits if possible, only Davies will be a bit trickier of the quartet.
Jonathan Panzo’s potential arrival puts Davies down the pecking order, but on his wages he’ll be harder to shift.
Anyway, more as we get it.
